Vicente Fox says NAU, Amero are "long term" vision

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox revealed to interviewer Larry King last night that he had been working on a North American Union during his term. According to WND:

...King, near the end of the broadcast, asked Fox a question e-mailed from a listener, a Ms. Gonzalez from Elizabeth, N.J.: "Mr. Fox, I would like to know how you feel about the possibility of having a Latin America united with one currency?"

Fox answered in the affirmative, admitting he and President Bush had agreed to pursue the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas – a free-trade zone extending throughout the Western Hemisphere – and that part of the plan was to institute a regional currency from Canada to the tip of South America.

Here is a YouTube video of the exchange. Note how King rephrases the question to clarify what Fox is saying after he goes off on a tangent about Hugo Chavez:

This looks like further vindication of Jerome Corsi, author of our NYT bestseller The Late Great USA: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Back in August, President Bush derided NAU objections as the product of "conspiracy theorists," but his ex-counterpart from Mexico is proving that Corsi was on the right track.

By the way, after searching on YouTube I came across a clip from my friends at the Daily Show which also featured Fox as a guest, and he specifically says that he supports an NAU with the U.S. and Canada. Fast forward to the 2:02 mark of this video and see for yourself:

  • Jerome Corsi lied.

    Larry King asked Vicente Fox a question from a viewer, who wanted to know "how you feel about" the idea of a uniting "Latin America" with a common currency.

    Note well: Latin America is Mexico and points south. The USA and Canada are not in Latin America.

    Fox said that couldn't happen for a "long, long" time, and what Latin America really needs is trade agreements, like what the North American countries have done with NAFTA.

    Corsi, however, claimed that, "Vicente Fox... confirmed the existence of a government plan to create the amero as a new regional currency to replace the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Mexican Peso."

    Corsi also wrote that, "Fox... admitt[ed] he and President Bush had agreed... to institute a regional currency from Canada to the tip of South America."

    That's all lies. Fox said nothing at all about any plan for a North American Union or a common currency for the USA and any other countries, nor any agreement with President Bush to create such things. Corsi just made it all up to smear President Bush.
