Chavez Paying Millions to Guerrillas for Fighting Columbia?
Posted by Joshua Price on March 12, 2008
The Bush administration is examining the contents of a laptop computer captured in Ecuador, which reportedly documents pledges by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to guerrillas fighting the Colombian government.
The administration has also asked its lawyers to investigate whether Venezuela could be placed on its list of state sponsors of terrorism, according to a report yesterday in the Miami Herald, quoting senior U.S. officials.
“We are currently evaluating the contents of the confiscated laptop and hard drive and will continue to monitor the situation carefully,” a State Department spokeswoman said yesterday. “We are not in a position to comment fully at this time.”
Would this surprise anyone if true? But remember, he has created a peace-seeking utopia down there in Venezuela, just ask Sean Penn and Danny Glover. They will be happy to tell how much better it is down there than here.
