Amidst fierce criticism over the deal which saw five Taliban members go free, former U.S. State Department official Steve Pieczenik exclusively told the Alex Jones Show that he is being pursued by the Obama administration for complicity in the murder of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro because he refused to negotiate with Red Brigade terrorists.
Pieczenik revealed exclusively to Infowars that he was recently served a subpoena by the FBI in Florida at the behest of the Justice Department, Eric Holder and the Florida district court judge Cecilia Altonaga requesting his presence and potential indictment for following the policy of refusing to negotiate with terrorists when working under the State Department during the kidnapping and murder of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978.
“I was brought in on criminal charges for….being consistent with our policy of no negotiation with the Red Brigade terrorists….35 years later the State Department and the Justice Department under the orders of Obama has ordered me to appear before the court just one week ago….at the behest of the Italian prosecutor with the overlying notion that I will be committed for criminal indictment if I don’t reveal what I had done in saving Italy and refusing to negotiate with terrorists,” Pieczenik told the Alex Jones Show.
Pieczenik denied that the case against him had anything to do with his many controversial comments made in recent years, almost all of which were broadcast via the Alex Jones Show.
According to published reports, Pieczenik, an international crisis manager and hostage negotiator in the State Department, said that it was necessary to “sacrifice” Moro for the “stability” of Italy in order to prevent the country from being taken over by Communists. Pieczenik’s role was to make it clear to Red Brigade terrorists that no negotiations would take place and that the United States already considered Moro to be dead.
Moro was snatched by terrorists at gunpoint from his car in Rome and held for 54 days before being shot dead. He had been set to implement an alliance between the Christian Democrat Party and the Italian Communist Party, an action that Henry Kissinger told Moro’s wife he would “pay dearly for.”
The potential indictment of Pieczenik for refusing to negotiate with terrorists is extremely relevant given the avalanche of criticism currently being directed at the Obama administration over the deal that freed U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter, in return for five Taliban prisoners.
