UN admits role in Haiti cholera outbreak that killed 10,000 people

United Nations officials acknowledged, for the first time, the role peacekeepers played in the 2010 deadly cholera outbreak in Haiti that killed 10,000 people and sickened hundreds of thousands of others.

The Office of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in an email this week said “the UN has become convinced that it needs to do much more regarding its own involvement in the initial outbreak and the suffering of those affected by cholera,” reported the New York Times.

For six years, UN officials refused to accept blame for bringing cholera to Haiti, but suspicions settled on a group of UN troops from Nepal who arrived after the January 2010 earthquake. Nepal had a cholera epidemic underway at the time and raw sewage from the latrines at the UN troops’ came was allowed to seep into an adjacent river.

The earthquake crippled the capital of Port-au-Prince, killing 200,000 people, then the cholera outbreak sickened hundreds of thousands of others, and killing 10,000.

The families of 5,000 Haitian cholera victims petitioned the United Nations in 2011 for redress, but its Office of Legal Affairs simply declared their claims “not receivable.

An attorney who represents Haitian cholera victims who have filed a suit in US federal court seeking reparations from the UN told the Washington Post that acceptance of culpability could make it more likely plaintiffs will finally receive financial compensation.

“The UN has broad immunity from national courts, but that has always been conditioned on providing remedies out of court to victims who are harmed by UN operations,” Beatrice Lindstrom told the Washington Post. “It has been in breach of the treaty granting it immunity in the first place, so if the UN follows through on remedies, that would make questions of immunity mute.”

UN “peacekeepers” were deployed to Haiti following the 2004 ouster of then-president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

The deputy spokesman for the secretary-general, Farhan Haq, told the New York Times the United Nations will draft a new response within two months and present it “once it has been fully elaborated, agreed with the Haitian authorities and discussed with member states.”

“This is a major victory for the thousands of Haitians who have been marching for justice, writing to the UN and bringing the UN to court,” said Mario Joseph, a Haitian human rights lawyer representing victims of the epidemic.

The UN acknowledgment comes after top officials were provided a draft 19-page report by an adviser criticizing their handling of the cholera outbreak.

The report written by NYU law professor Philip Alston, the special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, will likely be published in September and present by Ban at the UN General Assembly in October.

Alston wrote that the United Nations’ Haiti cholera policy “is morally unconscionable, legally indefensible and politically self-defeatingaccording to the New York Times.

Alston went beyond criticizing the Department of Peacekeeping Operations to blame the entire United Nations system. As the magnitude of the disaster became known, key international officials carefully avoided acknowledging that the outbreak had resulted from discharges from the camp,” he noted.

When the outbreak occurred it spread rapidly in the muddy, crowded tent camps where Haitians had sought refuge after the quake. The disease continues to sicken Haitians, especially in rural parts of the country without access to clean drinking water. A new spike of infections has been reported this year.

A recent report by Doctors Without Borders has raised the possibility the disease may have killed far more Haitians than previously estimated.

The secretary-general stopped short of saying the United Nations caused the outbreak. The organization continues to hold the position it is immune from legal action as a result of the outbreak.

Are weather warfare assaults devastating noncompliant countries around the globe?

For more on the subject of geoengineering, climate engineering, and weather modification programs, a few references are listed below following this article.

Was Slovenia a target of a completely engineered catastrophe?
by Dane Wigington

Slovenia Ice Store 2The photo above was taken in Slovenia, 80% of the forests there were devastated by this completely unprecedented ice storm in February 2014. I was in regular communication with a contact in Slovenia just after the event. This individual made clear the fact that many of the citizens were absolutely convinced this destruction was the result of climate modification/weather warfare. Again, this magnitude of extreme ice storm is historically unprecedented, up to 6 inches of ice accumulation occurred. This is exactly the result that would be expected with massive chemical ice nucleation elements sprayed into a storm system. Is it just coincidence that many countries in recent years are annihilate by “natural cataclysms”? In 2010 Pakistan was resisting US policy just prior to record floods covering 20% of the country with water.

Pakistan Flooding

Record flooding in Pakistan shortly after the country showed resistance to US/NATO policies.

In 2011 Thailand refused an air base for the US government , shortly afterward Thailand was inundated with devastating floods.

Industry in Thailand was devastated during the floods of 2011 which came shortly after Thailand refused to allow a US air base in its borders.

Just over one year ago record strength typhoon Haiyan cut a swath through the Philippines. The US military went into the country under “humanitarian” pretexts, now the US is setting up military bases there.

Cyclone Haiyan

Cyclone Haiyan underwent intense and extremely anomalous strengthening just prior to it making landfall.

Available science data on the global ionosphere heaters (HAARP and SBX rf installations) indicate that they are capable of triggering seismic activity if the energy they transmit is concentrated in a seismically sensitive zone for a long enough duration. Even MIT confirmed the fact that there was extremely anomalous and unprecedented atmospheric heating directly over the epicenter of the Japanese quake of 2011. The Japanese were beginning to drift from their long alliance with the US prior to the quake, but have since completely solidified their alliance with the US. Is there a connection?

The devastation in Japan is far from over as the Fukushima meltdown still threatens the entire world.

What about Haiti? Is it just another coincidence that the US military went into the country under “humanitarian” pretexts and then occupied the country? Was the Haiti disaster just another convenient catastrophe?

Haiti has never recovered from the quake and the US military occupation continues.

Hungary has just been hit hard by a unprecedented ice storm and deadly “freezing fog”. Is it a just another coincidence that the relations between Hungary and the US/NATO powers have been steadily worsening, and just recently came to a head? Is Hungary only one of the latest victims for a global military industrial complex that is totally out of control?

Downed power lines

Downed power lines from the “freakish” ice storm that just decimated Hungary.

Militaries around the globe and throughout history have always desired weather and nature as the ultimate weapon. Are there wars now being waged around the globe without firing a shot? All available evidence says yes. Though there have always been climate related disasters, much of what we see today is unprecedented and seems to occur in correlation with geopolitical events or subsequent  occupations. The US military has boots on the ground in over 150 countries. The leaders of Iran have spoken out on the floor of the UN about NATO weather modification programs causing unprecedented drought in their country, are we to think Iran is the only country being covertly attacked with weather warfare? Many African countries have been devastated by drought for decades, most of those countries are now occupied by the US military. Is all this just coincidence? I think not.
