Ecuadorian president warns of possible 'CIA attack' before elections

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa has said the CIA may try to kill him prior to upcoming elections. Citing reports of a plot to “destabilize the region,” Correa said the threats were “credible,” given the history of US involvement in Latin America.

“There are many cases of interfering” in Latin American affairs, Correa said during a campaign tour in the coastal province of Guayas. “These are credible because this has happened before in Latin America.”

The head of the US diplomatic mission in Quito, Adam Nann, responded to Bell's claims by saying that Washington “would never get involved” in Ecuador's electoral process.

Although Correa conceded that he believed the statements of the US ambassador, he warned that agencies such as the CIA often follow their own agenda and maintain links with organizations representing the extreme right in the countries in which they operate.

1. "Washington “would never get involved” in Ecuador's electoral process."

Assassination isn't part of anybody's electoral process......which is what he was afraid of.

3. Thanks for posting this info. I hope a lot of people will be watching Ecuador

especially during this campaign season.

For those who wish to butt in to try to trash this information, it should be pointed out to them it's a miracle they haven't taken the time to acquaint themselves with US/Latin American history regarding covert, and overt operations going back forever. It's not a pretty sight.
