Let us prey…

5 March 2013

Chavéz wasn’t even dead yet, and the U.S. was already busy trying to make mischief:  Via The Guardian earlier today:

[While President Chavéz was dying in a military hospital, Vice-President Maduro]… said the government planned to expel a US embassy official for meeting military officers and “planning to destabilise the country”.

Maduro identified the American as the air force attache, whom, he said, had been spying on Venezuela’s military. He said the official had 24 hours to leave the country.

Greg Adams, a US embassy spokesman, identified the attache as David Delmonaco. Adams had no immediate comment.

Later, the foreign minister Elias Jaua also announced the expulsion of a second US official, also an air force attache.

Or,  Barack Obama said, corrected to what he meant:

“At this challenging time of President Hugo Chavez’s passing, the United States reaffirms its support for the Venezuelan people elites in developing a constructive relationship with controlling the Venezuelan government and resources. As Venezuela begins a new chapter in its history, the United States remains committed to policies that promote subvert democratic principles, the rule of law, and respect for human rights.”


There, fixed it.

    You might be interested in my analysis of today’s State Department briefing. Obama didn’t even offer condolences? Yikes.
