[ Editors Note: Dear readers, I wish I could say this case was a one time event, but it obviously was not. Although not a daily occurrence, disposing of troublesome employees for doing their jobs ‘too well’ has a long track record. It is an area of systemic abuse, one hidden behind the classification wall of silence solely to protect the guilty.

This is threat to all of us because it means those in the future who choose to utilize this form or accelerated employee retirement can feel comfortable that there is a system in place to see to it they don’t have to be looking over their shoulders the rest of their lives. It is a huge ongoing failure of our government, one which should be dishonored at every opportunity for its continued restrictions on these employee murder files…Jim W. Dean ]

Kiki comes home

Kiki comes home

This story will likely elicit much discussion, especially given the outrage that Caro Quintero’s release triggered in the U.S. Quien sabe?– un vato.

It reads like it was taken from a complex espionage novel has just exploded on U.S. television. Enrique Kiki Camarena, the DEA law enforcement officer murdered in Mexico in February, 1985, was apparently not the victim of the Mexican capo Rafael Caro Quintero, but rather,, of a dark member of the CIA.

This individual was the one charged with silencing the anti-narcotics agent for one serious reason: he had discovered that Washington was associated with the drug trafficker and was using the profits from the drug trafficking to finance the activities of the counterrevolution… Robert O’Dowd.

Kiki and friend’s bodies being returned…the discount way

WASHINGTON (Proceso)(apro).— Three former U.S. federal agents decided to end a 28-year silence and simultaneously entrusted this journal and the U.S. Fox news services with an information “bomb”.

Enrique Kiki Camarena was not murdered by Rafael Caro Quintero — the capo that served a sentence for that crime — but by an agent of the CIA. The reason: the DEA agent discovered that his own government was collaborating with the Mexican narco in his illegal business.

In interviews with Proceso, Phil Jordan, former director of the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC); Hector Berrellez, former DEA agent, and Tosh Plumlee, a former CIA pilot, claim that they have evidence that the U.S. government itself ordered the murder of Kiki Camarena in 1985. In addition, they point to a sinister Cuban character, Felix Ismael Rodriguez, as the murderer.

“It was I who directed the investigation into the death of Camarena”, says Berrellez, and he adds: “During this investigation, we discovered that some members of a U.S. intelligence agency, who had infiltrated the DFS (the Mexican Federal Security Directorate), also participated in the kidnapping of Camarena. Two witnesses identified Felix Ismael Rodriguez. They (witnesses) were with the DFS and they told us that, in addition, he (Rodriguez) had identified himself s “U.S. intelligence.”

Kiki - waiting and wondering

Kiki – waiting and wondering

The official story and the version that the DEA continues to assert is that Caro Quintero kidnapped, tortured and murdered Kiki Camarena in February of 1985, in retaliation for the U.S. agent having discovered his enormous marijuana farms and his processing center in the El Bufalo ranch.

Felix Ismael Rodriguez, “El Gato”, has one of the murkiest histories in the U.S. intervention in Central America, mainly in Nicaragua.

To this Cuban — who participated in the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and after that, in the Vietnam War — is attributed the capture, and therefore the assassination, of Che Guevara in Bolivia on October 9, 1967.

Helping the Capo

Doing time in Mexican jails is the real deal

Doing time in Mexican jails is the real deal

Interviewed separately, Jordan, Berrellez and Plumlee coincide on many details in the reconstruction of the events that led the CIA to decide to eliminate Camarena.

The story that the three former agents describe begins with pointing out that El Gato Rodriguez, in addition to having infiltrated the DFS, took a Honduran named Juan Mata Ballesteros, a person known to Colombian traffickers, with him to Mexico.

In Mexico, according to the interviewees, Matta’s mission was to obtain drugs in Colombia for the Guadalajara Cartel, led by Caro Quintero in the 1980’s. The U.S. government allowed the Mexican drug trafficker to sell cocaine, marijuana and other drugs wherever he wanted. Washington benefited, since it shared the profits.

The portion of the money received by the CIA — represented in Mexico by Rodriguez through Mata — was delivered to counterrevolutionaries in Nicaragua, La Contra, in the form of weapons and other military equipment. This is how the U.S. financed the guerrilla war against the Sandinista regimen, then led by the current president of the Central American country, Daniel Ortega.

Death Sentence

In his investigations into the drug trafficking activities that Caro Quintero led, Camarena discovered the role that his government played in the illegal business to finance the Contras. And this, in the opinion of the interviewees, was his death sentence.

“The CIA ordered the kidnapping and torture of ‘Kiki’ Camarena, and when they killed him, they made us believe it was Caro Quintero in order to cover up all the illegal things they were doing (with drug trafficking) in Mexico” emphasizes Jordan. He adds: “The DEA is the only (federal agency) with the authority to authorize drug trafficking into the United States as part of an undercover operation”.

The former chief of EPIC, the largest espionage center in the United States dedicated to observing what happens in Mexico and the common border, and who was also a DEA agent and Camarena’s boss when he was murdered, sums up in a quote what the discovery of its involvement in Mexican drug trafficking represented to the CIA:

“The business with El Bufalo was nothing compared with the money from the cocaine that was being sold to buy weapons for the CIA”.

However, “Kiki” Camarena was not the only one nor was he the first to discover the perverse CIA-Caro Quintero-Contra triangle.

The Mexican Judicial Police Officer

Berrellez and Jordan maintain that the first person to inform of this incredible U.S. undercover espionage operation in the early 1980’s was Guillermo Gonzalez Calderoni, who was then the chief of the Mexican Federal Judicial Police.

Gonzalez Calderoni fled from Mexico in 1993; he was accused of collaborating with the Juarez Cartel and he sought refuge in the United States, where the DEA turned him into a protected witness. In 2003, the former Mexican commander was murdered in McAllen, Texas.

La Familia

La Familia

— I helped him, I sent a jet and brought him to California. Over here, now under DEA protection, he became an informant and helped us a lot. The Mexican government wanted to extradite him, but I did all I could to prevent that because I knew they would kill him over there. After that, he was accused of corruption and illegal influences and things like that, but I’m telling you: it’s not true — Berrellez states.

— And that’s how he told you about the CIA? — he’s asked.

— Yes. He told me: ‘Hector, get out of this business because they’re going to fuck you over. The CIA is involved in that business about ‘Kiki’. It’s very dangerous for you to be in this.’ He gave me names, among them that of Felix, and details and everything, but when my bosses found out, they took me out of the investigation and sent me to Washington.

The twist to the story about the kidnapping, torture and murder of “Kiki” Camarena “is a bombshell”. What is not clear is why these three former U.S. agents waited 28 years to make it known. They refuse to explain it.

He Ddoesn’t Talk Much

Plumlee, although he doesn’t talk much, recalls that in the early 1980’s he flew a C-130 airplane to take people from the Contras to receive training at a ranch that Caro Quintero owned in Veracruz.

During the good days

During the good days

— I flew drugs on CIA airplanes and I knew the pilot that took Caro Quintero out of the country when he was being persecuted by the government.

— Did you know “Kiki” Camarena? — Plumlee is asked.

— He flew, before he was kidnapped, from Guadalajara to California to inform about the CIA operations with narcos and the Nicaraguan Contras in Mexico, and I remember I said to him “We’re on the same team. Stay out of what I’m doing”.

— What else were you doing for the CIA at that time?

— The United States government was into everything. We smuggled drugs, weapons, and we used the money to finance the operation in Nicaragua.

— How was your contract in all of this?

— We were always subcontractors; that’s why the CIA now said we didn’t have those operations. But everything is there…

    Requiescat in Pace, Enrique. Ora pro Patria.

    This is a screenplay about Agent Camarena. Be warned that the description of the crime is harsh. May all the perpetrators be brought to justice for such iniquity.

    Luis Chaparro and J. Jesus Esquivel wrote the article. I learned of the news story this morning from a friend. Fox News did their story on Kiki’s murder, but made no mention of Felix. Hmmm, so Felix now lives in luxury in Key Biscayne.

    Terrific, long overdue article. Many disclosures are coming forth as ops get old and turn back to the Constitution and respect for what the Founding Fathers did to set up the Constitution and Bill of Rights. This info on the boosh pier 66/mena/iran contra drug cabal is really just the tip of the iceberg. The folks that assassinated JFK rose to power and still run things and are basically nothing but a big illegal narcotics trafficking and illegal weapons/war making/murder cartel for the individuals that sit at the top of the hierarchy and set policy. Yes, the true culprits are those that sit on the defense policy type boards and set policy on behalf of the int’l central Banksters run out of the City of London Financial District, you know, the folks that fly the luciferian hex flag and take orders from the OBN circle of 12. In future months to come I would not be surprised if we see kingpins dying of old age, many being “terminated by executive actions” of subordinates, and many leaving position and retiring to “spend more time” with their families (translated means leaving to preserve for their lives). I think there will be so many disclosures about every deep dark evil USG secret that the USG as it is will basically collapse. Stay tuned because I expect folks minds to be blown in the weeks and months to come with these jaw dropping disclosures. Numerous top insiders believe that there is going to be a complete end of all secrecy despite all USG actions to turn America into Gaza 2.

      You said it, “Jaw drooping disclosures.” I just read the Fox News report on the same news story. Fox made no mention of Rodriguez as the killer but followed the party line in naming Quintero. If Rodriquez was involved, then he’s a US citizen and can be arrested for murder today. Quintero, released from a Mexican prison, can’t be found. Rodriquez (if it’s the same man) had connections to George H. Bush and Iran/Contra. Did Kiki get too close for comfort and was murdered to protect key US leadership? Of course, the DOJ will never follow-up with Rodriquez. There’s no statue of limitations on murder but the power players won’t allow any investigation of Rodriquez and apparently, Fox got the message and failed to report Rodriquez as a CIA agent who was present during the torture and murder of Kiki. So much for the major media.

      exactly, JFK wanted to stop the CIA-bush (later clintons) machine, and the “federal reserve” too.
      the Mel Gibson movie “Air America” pretty well told about the dope-weapons trading in Korea,
      only thing left out being Air America being a “private contractor” mercenary airline run by bush.
      “the clinton chronicles” and “clinton body count” are good clues how ruthless these criminals are.
      we can only hope more people wake up to everything these criminals have really done to the USA.
