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:

Keith Rankin: Narrow Vision: Subsidised Cars And Street Immunity
Problems make the world go round. Many of us – maybe the majority of workers, and certainly the majority of well-paid workers – earn our living addressing problems. A problem-free world would represent a major crisis for modern social-capitalism. (Yet standard economic theory continues to present the productive economy as a mechanism for 'satisfying wants', as distinct from 'addressing problems... More>>


Biden In Tokyo: Killing Strategic Ambiguity
Could it have been just another case of bumbling poor judgment, the mind softened as the mouth opened? A question was put to US President Joe Biden, visiting Tokyo and standing beside Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida: “You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” The answer: “Yes. That’s a commitment we made.”.. More>>

Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters. Because governments come and governments go – about every six to seven years on average since 1945 – getting too focused on their long-term fiscal aspirations is often pointless... More>>

The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
