New documents point to a State Department cover-up in Honduras which left 2 pregnant women, 2 men dead

CBS News reported that a State Department official covered up and interfered with inspector general investigations of sexual misconduct, including the soliciation of prostitutes by an ambassador. Then we learned those sexual solicitations involved minors. 

Now a new report says State Department officials covered up the shooting of four Hondurans.

The NY Post that a “top State Department official stymied investigators trying to get to the bottom of four killings in Honduras involving DEA agents and local police” as the incident “ended in the deaths of two pregnant women and two men last year, after Honduran national police opened fire from a State Department-owned helicopter on a small boat.”

The killings were referenced in a whistleblower memo obtained by The Post.

According to an internal 2012 document, the DEA agents were under the authority of the State Department chief of mission in Honduras, funded by a counternarcotics program, and were “subject to investigation” by State investigators.

But when those inquiries began, “despite requests by the US ambassador to Honduras and congressional pressure, DEA reportedly [was] not cooperating.”

The memo says an agent interviewed William Brownfield, the assistant secretary for international narcotics and law-enforcement affairs, “who reportedly was not forthcoming and gave the impression” that State “should not pursue the investigation.”

DEA spokeswoman Dawn Dearden said no US investigation had occurred because “DEA never fired a single round.”

Aurelia Fedenisn, a State Department inspector general investigator who turned whistleblower, is already accusing higher-ups of squelching findings from an investigative report that members of then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s security detail and the US ambassador to Belgium allegedly solicited hookers.

Howard Gutman, the ambassador, said yesterday he was “angered and saddened by the baseless allegations.” And State official Patrick Kennedy said he had “never once interfered” in any investigation.

  1. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    BECAUSE OF MY ONLINE COMMENTARY, MANY PEOPLE THINK I AM A pedophile; IN FACT, A Global Dispatch commenter [THIS WEEK] RIDICULED ME FOR VIEWING A WEBSITE CONTAINING “child porn.”

    NOW, Global Dispatch PUBLISHES AN ARTICLE WITH THE WORD, “minors,” HIGHLIGHTED IN BLUE FOR LINK-ACCESS; BUT, THE LINKED ARTICLE DOES NOT TELL THE GENDER(S) OF THE CHILDREN WHO ALLEGEDLY HAD SEX WITH THE U.S. AMBASSADOR. [I am tired of male homosexuals taking the rap for pedophilia, while the pedophilic activities of a high-ranking government-official are “cloaked” in the deaths of four unimportant-people caught in a drug-sting].

    AS I HAVE TYPED BEFORE, MALE HOMOSEXUALS ARE LITERATE PEOPLE WHO ENJOY READING – WE NEED TO START “CALLING-OUT” THESE JOURNALISTS WHO LOVE TO PAINT A SLEAZY PICTURE OF WHO THEY THINK WE ARE [i.e., Tony McLeod], WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY ALLOWING SOCIALLY-ACCEPTED “SLEAZEBALLS” FREE REIGN.

    BY THE WAY, Donkeyhotey SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO DRAW Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, WITH DECENT ACCURACY – MAYBE, HE ONLY HAS PROBLEMS DRAWING PEOPLE OF COLOR.
