    From 1971 to 1973, Negroponte was the officer-in charge for Vietnam at the National Security Council under Henry Kissinger. During that period, former DEA Michael Levine was conducting undercover operations in Saigon, Thailand, and Cambodia where our government was smuggling heroin into the U.S. Our government was utilizing caskets and body bags of those "Killed In Action" to smuggle in the heroin.

    From 1981-1985, Negroponte was U.S. ambassador to Honduras, where he illegally assisted the contra war and most devastatingly, helped the Reagan administration in "disappearing" close to 300 of political opponents in classic death squad fashion. He supervised the creation of the El Aguacate air base, which the Contras used it as a secret detention and torture center. In August 2001, excavations at the base discovered 185 corpses, including two Americans missionaries. In May 1982, a nun, Sister Laetitia Bordes went on a fact-finding delegation to Honduras to investigate the whereabouts of thirty Salvadoran nuns who fled to Honduras in 1981. Negroponte claimed the embassy knew nothing. But in a 1996 a U. S. newspaper interviewed Negroponte's predecessor, Jack Binns. Binns said that a group of Salvadorans, among whom them was Bordes, who had been captured on April 22, 1981, and savagely tortured by the Honduran Secret Police, and then later thrown out of helicopters, alive. Negroponte turned a deliberate blind eye to a murderous pattern of political killings. He orchestrated the famous death squad Battalion 316, which used shock and suffocation devices in interrogations. Prisoners often kept naked and when no longer useful, killed and buried in unmarked graves. We have seen similar seen pictures of those atrocities committed by our service man and women in Iraq.

    From 1989 to September 1993, he was also ambassador to Mexico where he directed our U. S. intelligence services to assist the war against the Zapatista rebels in Chiapas. Furthermore, he was there in obstructing the war on drugs. Seven Mexican drug agents were gunned down in an ambush by 100 members of the Mexican army on the payroll of a drug cartel; Negroponte dismissed the slaughter as "a regrettable incident." The slaughter had been videotaped by the DEA from another plane, which had also been strafed by the army unit.
