Romney’s Death Squad Ties: Bain Launched With Millions From Oligarchs Behind Salvadoran Atrocities

Source  Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is facing new scrutiny over revelations he founded the private equity firm Bain Capital with investments from Central American elites linked to death squads in El Salvador. After initially struggling to find investors, Romney traveled to Miami in 1983 to win pledges of $9 million, 40 percent of Bain’s start-up money. Some investors had extensive ties to the death squads responsible for the vast majority of the tens of thousands of deaths in El Salvador during the 1980s. We’re joined by Huffington Post reporter Ryan Grim, who connects the dots in his latest story, “Mitt Romney Started Bain Capital With Money From Families Tied To Death Squads.” “There’s no possible way that anybody in 1984 could check out these families — which was the term that [Romney’s campaign] used — and come away convinced that this money was clean,” Grim says.

  1. The sooner Romney is exposed and discredited as a corrupt politician unworthy of becoming the next president of America the sooner Ron Paul who is waiting patiently becomes the next presidential nominee.

    Do your patriotic duty, copy this to other blogs and to family/friends. Spread the word.

  2. You want to tread cautiously here, as CISPES the communist revolutionaries are still around, and the confusion they still spew forth is still poisonous to the truth. Those that were around at the time will recall that the US Govt backed the socialist Duarte over Roberto d’Abuisson who wanted to “establish a republic as Thomas Jefferson”.

    The predominance of the atrocities from my knowledge were carried out by the Cuban-backed communist terrorists – – just as in Nicaragua which was betrayed by the Carter US State Department’s Robert White & Pastor. Look into the recently formation of NAU and you’ll find Pastor. Here’s a Wiki dossier on Pastor:
    Pastor is married to the former Margaret McNamara, daughter of former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, with whom he has two children. He lives in Washington, D.C. — CFR all the way.

    Keep up the fine work, my friend,

  3. Crawling up out of the foul smell of the most evil of infectious bigotry, Romney Mittens pauses long enough to wave before returning to satan. Blood sacrifice, a sharp haircut, and a taste for tacky dress suits is his message.
