I wondered how long before the CIA get the blame for the demise of Hugo Chavez even though there is a Democrat in the Whitehouse.
Venezuela has accused the US of causing his cancer…their chemical and biological weapons capacity seems very advanced if that is the case.
Venezuela on Tuesday accused its enemies of causing ailing President Hugo Chavez’s cancer and expelled two US military officers for an alleged plot to destabilise the nation.
Caracas lashed out against the opposition and the US after announcing that Chavez had taken a turn for the worse and was struggling to breathe after contracting a new and severe infection.
Chavez died later on Tuesday after his two-year battle with cancer, ending 14 years of tumultuous and divisive rule that won him passionate support among the poor but hatred from business leaders and wealthy Venezuelans.
After a meeting with the country’s civilian and military leadership, vice-president Nicolas Maduro said a scientific commission would be formed and that it would reveal that Chavez “was attacked with the disease”.
“The enemies of his nation looked for how to harm the health of our commander,” he said in televised remarks, drawing a parallel with a probe into allegations that the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned.
The government then announced it was expelling two US Air Force attaches, accusing them of contacting Venezuelan military officials to get information about the armed forces and to foment “destabilization projects.”
