|Yair Klein Israeli mercenary. Photo Week|
[The old master trainer of mercenaries and terrorists is threatening to do the one thing which no other source has ever done, reveal that he trained both sides of an American limited war effort in Colombia, and promised to provide details of that era. This is mind-blowing stuff…..think about it,…..the man worked for the Israeli government, to carry-out secret American military and drug control policy, with the full consent of the Colombian host government. Klein is validating every known conspiracy theory about the secret S. American drug war, especially those speculating about CIA drug-running. More importantly to us today, is that Yair is validating the most ludicrous conspiracy theory imaginable (the one that has kept me searching for proof), that the CIA trains and finances all major terrorist operations in secret, in order to justify the open creation of paramilitary counter-forces (death squads), such as the dreaded AUC in Colombia, which was also trained by Mr. Klein and his British and American associates.
This is an identical set-up to that now being employed from Pakistan to the Middle East, as well as in Africa…the Pentagon/CIA train both the terrorist armies (a.k.a., “al-Qaeda”) and the Special Operations military forces who fight against them. It is no coincidence that Special Forces are the units which train together on the international level, as well as the primary motivational force within the US Military. According to popular doctrine, all military forces should be trained by “SpecOps.”
Yair Klein could never reveal such geostrategic secrets and survive the telling, but maybe he is the kind of guy who doesn’t give a shit, or possibly a real “jedi warrior” type who fights for honor or the cause of justice in this world. Until Klein, or someone like him, blows the whistle on the whole stinking mess, researchers like me will continue to search for someone, or something which proves incontrovertibly, that the United States government is the world’s greatest source of terrorism.]
“What I have on these officials is fantastic,” Klein says; Justice Ministry says it does not plan to take any action in former IDF officer’s case.
In 2001, Klein was tried in absentia by the Supreme Tribunal of the Manzales district of Colombia and sentenced to 10 years and eight months in prison on charges of training illegal paramilitary groups. The Colombian government issued a warrant for his arrest with Interpol, and he was detained during a visit to Russia in August 2007.
The Colombian government asked Russia to extradite Klein. The government agreed to do so and the Russian courts, in a series of rulings, upheld the decision despite appeals by Klein’s lawyers, including his Israeli attorney, Mordechai Tzivin.
Tzivin appealed the final decision of the Russian Supreme Court in May 2008 to the European Court of Human Rights, arguing that Russia had not taken into account the poor state of human rights in Colombia at the time, as well as a threat by former Colombian vice president Francisco Santos, that Klein would “rot in jail” after his return to Colombia.
The human rights court, in April of this year, forbade Russia from extraditing Klein to Colombia. Russia appealed the decision, but the appeal was denied last month.
On Sunday, in a telephone conversation with The Jerusalem Post, Klein said his entire relationship with Colombia was approved by the Israeli and Colombian governments.
Klein said that in 1988 he was sent by the Israeli Defense Ministry to help protect the organization of banana growers in Colombia at the request of the Colombian government.
Before he had time to take action, he said, the organization was destroyed. He told the Post that in the meantime, however, he was asked
by the Colombian government
the left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.
Klein told the Post that if the Colombian government persisted in its efforts to force him to return to Columbia, he would blow the whistle on officials in the current and previous Columbian governments.
“What I have on these officials is fantastic,” he said.
Meanwhile, Tzivin said that for the past month, ever since the European Court of Human Rights prohibited Russia from extraditing Klein, the public, the media and the government in Colombia have been preoccupied with what illegal activities Klein might divulge about Colombian political and military leaders.
Presumably in an effort to persuade the Colombian government to drop the affair, Tzivin told the Post, “My client has information that could cause political shockwaves in the senior echelons of the current and previous Colombian governments.
If exposed, the information could lead to dismissals in the government and the arrest of past and present political and military figures.
“I recommended to my client not to publish the information so as not to cause chaos, since Colombia is now significantly improving the state of human rights in the country.”
