As it was publicly made known, on September 23rd, ex-colonel and former Ecuadorian President Lucio Gutierrez traveled to Florida and delivered a speech entitled "The Socialism of the XXI Century and the Crisis in Ecuador."
The scene of the showy event was the American Institute for Liberty and Democracy, an interventionist facade created and directed by Carlos Alberto Montaner, Cuban-born terrorist, dressed up as an intellectual and journalist by the Miami Mafia and its allies.
Carlos Alberto Montaner has provided numerous services to the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA. He is also closely connected with José María Aznar and his patrons in the U.S. Republican Party, whose instructions he always follows promptly.
In such a "distinguished" place like Miami, Gutierrez outlined several ideas that, read in light of the events of September 30th in Quito, allow us to see how the conspiracy was being cooked up.
The ex-colonel pointed to the need to oust President Correa to resolve what he called a "crisis" and that there is nothing else but the development of the Citizen Revolution and the social and economic transformations currently being conducted.
Gutierrez said that there were sections of the army that were unhappy with what he called the proximity of the Armed Forces with Colombian rebel groups.
Sitting close to him at the time of his speech was Colonel Mario Pazmiño, former head of military intelligence.
Pazmiño has been accused of having links with the CIA and was discharged after the Colombian incursion into Ecuador in March 2008, when Colombian rebel leader Raul Reyes was killed.
Among the audience who carefully listened to ex-President Gutierrez’s lecture were notorious Republican leaders, closely linked to the U.S. extreme-right, plus the usual counterrevolutionary fauna that always rants and raves against Cuba and Venezuela.
When Montaner introduced the speaker, calling him “a true democrat,” he said that Gutierrez was the only one who could take Ecuador out of the crisis that according to him, 21st century socialism has plunged the nation.
Let’s also recall that Carlos Alberto Montaner was one of the most ardent defenders of the pro-coup junta headed by Roberto Micheletti in Honduras and justified the kidnapping and deportation of the constitutional President of that Central American nation, Manuel Zelaya.
In addition, just seven days after this lecture in Miami, events that bear a disquieting resemblance to what happened in Tegucigalpa in June 2009 took place in Quito --a fact that seems much more than a fortuitous coincidence.
The investigations are ongoing and every day new revelations are coming to light.
The defeat of the coup attempt was an extraordinary event, but the threat is not over.
There are too many enemies of freedom lurking around in Ecuador to believe that the danger has past.
