The Pentagon: The soldier who assassinated the President received U.S. military training

  At the same time, as relevant investigations deepened, the United States had more and more connections with the assassinations.

On the 15th, U.S. Pentagon spokesperson Ken Hoffman said in a statement, “A review of our training database revealed that a small number of Colombians detained as part of the investigation had participated in U.S. military training and education programs. "

  The statement did not specify how many people received the training or the content of the training.

Hoffman said the department is reviewing the matter.

  According to reports, the Haitian authorities have arrested at least 20 people in connection with the murder of Moiz, and at least 13 Colombians suspected of participating in the assassination have been identified as former Colombian soldiers.

  Haiti has asked the US military to help protect critical infrastructure during domestic riots, but the Biden administration currently has no plans to send troops.

Earlier this week, US government officials traveled to Haiti to review the country’s security situation and assist in the investigation of the assassination.

  Prior to this, the US Drug Enforcement Administration and the FBI had confirmed that some of the arrested persons involved in the case were their informants.

  According to the report, the US military training of South American troops is very common, especially Colombia, which has been a close partner of the US military for decades. They have received funds and other assistance to combat drug trafficking and guerrilla movements.

  But former Colombian soldiers are also often used as mercenaries.

The country’s nearly 60 years of internal conflict and elite military training based on the US Army Ranger School have made these Colombian soldiers appear on the battlefields of conflicts around the world.
