Did the U.S. State Department Have Anything To Do with the Attempted Assassination of Argentine Vice-President Cristina Fernández De Kirchner?

Sept. 6, 2022 (EIRNS)—This is a question that is being asked with growing urgency in significant circles in Argentina, Mexico, and other Ibero-American nations, who are outraged by the brazen attempted assassination of Argentine Vice-President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner on Sept. 1, and its implications for the region and the world.

For example, on the Sept. 5 edition of the Mexican radio program “Journalists’ Voices,” host Celeste Sáenz—who is also the Secretary General of the Journalists’ Club of Mexico—opened the show by stating that “it is scandalous that the Center for Countering Disinformation in Ukraine is being financed by the U.S., and that journalists are being fingered as ‘information terrorists.’ Just how far does the U.S. want to go? Just look at the way they’ve treated Julian Assange.” Sáenz then drew the connection to the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner case, and turned the floor over to EIR’s Mexican representative, Gerardo Castilleja, to both elaborate on that connection and invite journalists to attend the Sept. 7 international press conference on this matter.

As Castilleja and EIR have made clear, there are three interrelated sets of facts that are cause for alarm:

1) Fernando Sabag Montiel, the would-be assassin of the Argentine Vice President, had prominent tattoos on his body of the symbols of the Ukrainian Azov Battalion, including the “Black Sun” and the Azov swastika, while his Facebook page showed his great admiration for various neo-Nazi groups.

2) This Nazi Azov pattern was also prominent with the perpetrators of the bloody massacre in Buffalo, New York, in May of this year, and the carnage at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March of 2019.

3) The U.S. State Department is financing, sponsoring, and promoting the Ukrainian government agency, the Center for Countering Disinformation (CCD), which answers to that country’s Presidency, and which is publishing hit lists of national and international enemies whose so-called “disinformation” (that is, their promotion of a negotiated solution to the war) must be silenced. Many of those featured on the CCD hit list are then included in the list of “criminals to be eliminated” published by the avowedly fascist “Myrotvorets” website/hit squad in Ukraine. The Russian journalist Darya Dugina, assassinated on August 20, was on the Myrotvorets list before she was killed, and the next day they published her photo with a red line across it, along with the word “liquidated.” Myrotvorets features the same Nazi symbols used by the Azov Battalion in Ukraine, including the “Black Sun” and the Azov swastika.
