Tracking Bloody Footprints in the House of Death

Conroy: Tracking the Bloody Footprints in the House of Death
+ Guatemala Update


December 9, 2005
Please Distribute Widely

Bill Conroy’s tireless following of the ”House of Death” case — in which the Justice and Homeland Security departments are implicated in covering up mass murder committed with their knowledge in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico — continues. Today in the Narcosphere he posts the first part of a comprehensive timeline of the events and players of the case, condensing the many confusing elements of this story into a single narrative.

“For those of you who have been following this story on Narco News over the past year and a half,” writes Conroy, “this narrative line is nothing new. Still, despite all the information now out there, the bloodbath in the House of Death remains in the shadows of a cover-up. And based on public documents, as many of you now know, that cover-up reaches all the way to the top of the Department of Justice.

“But what has not been laid out to this point is the sequence of events, and the description of some of the key players, who acted out this tragic drug-war farce. Over the past several months, with the help of multiple sources and by piecing together information from a variety of documents, Narco News has created a diary, of sorts, that traces the events and background of the House of Death mass-murder case.”

Also, Conroy’s posting “Unraveling the pretense of the Guatemalan ‘Narco-State’” continues to generate comments and updates in its comments thread. Read the latest on that story, from background on the genocidal crimes of the drug-trafficking Guatemalan military to a developing narco-corruption scandal that has stolen the spotlight and placed on the police, here:

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
