Exclusive: When Abdelaziz Bouteflika greets Carlos the “Jackal” on Algiers Tarmac

It is an exceptional picture that we propose to our readers: Bouteflika and Carlos together again. This flashback allows us to learn a little bit more about the Sahara conflict.
This picture of December 23, 1975, shows the Algerian President, Abdelaziz Bouteflika welcoming the terrorist of Venezuelan origin Ilich Ramirez Sánchez, alias “Carlos”.
The terrorist has landed in Algiers holding forty two hostages kidnapped in Vienna during the OPEC conference.
On these photographs, the Complicity between the two men is obvious.
According to the testimony of Hans-Joachim Klein, former Carlos’s deputy who was seriously wounded at the time of the kidnapping: “they installed  us in a state’s house, an immense villa, and were treated like kings… the chief of the Algerian secret service came to visit every day, sometimes accompanied by the chief of the police force of Algiers. And there, I started to reflect a little bit. The chief of Algiers police force knew that I was German, and he says to me once: “Hitler Was a good man, hein? ». There I looked at him and said to myself: “poor FLN… ”. Once we even ate with Bouteflika, who was at that time the Foreign Affairs Minister …”

{mosimage}This episode demonstrates the incestuous relationship Algiers engaged with the Leninist- Marxists movements which flourished on the Seventies, among them … the Polisario Front.
