In response to the video from russia Today, many people have been saying that Chavez did not actually blame HAARP and that this was a disinfo technique used by the journal abc.es to paint him as an anti-American conspiracy theorists.
To investigate, I read the original abc.es article posted here:
It is in Spanish. What it basically says is that Chavez (or his government, in any case) declared that the Haiti quake was the result of a test undertaken by US military forces and involved an ‘earthquake machine’, although it is true they did not specifically name HAARP. As evidence, the Venezuelan government point to intelligence gathered by the Russian Naval Fleet and to the fact that SOUTHCOM was running a drill of their new security program, DISA, at the moment when the disaster occurred, and that the drill featured a scenario in which Haiti was devastated by a hurricane and US forces were to provide humanitarian aid. More details on this are mentioned in my previous post on SOUTHCOM and DISA.
The “Chavez said it was HAARP” rumor has been added to a Wikipedia article on HAARP, in a section entitled ‘Conspiracy Theories’ and supposedly ‘debunked’. However, examination of the venezuelan material does not actually discredit the claim that Chavez implicated the US military in the disaster. And it just so happens that HAARP is known to have the potential to cause earthquakes, although it has never been proven that it has been used for this purpose (although even if it had, do you think they would admit it?)
So, who can blame us ‘paranoid conspiracy nuts’ for connecting a few dots here?
Of note, the Wikipedia article also contains the following:
“Also Hugo Chavez has stated that his anus is so stretch and that has to wear diapers”
Now that’s what I call SOLID information!
