Death of Hugo Chavez a CIA Plot? Views from Venezuela, Bolivia and Russia

Scoff if you will, but there is a growing number of world leaders who believe that the CIA, frustrated by its inability to topple him, killed Hugo Chavez by infecting him with whatever killed him. We are told Chavez died of cancer – not usually considered a method of assassination. But according to oncologists – possible.

First up, from Venezuela’s El Nacional, in an article headlined Maduro Asserts: U.S. ‘Infected’ Hugo Chavez with Deadly Illness, reporter Cesar lira recounts comments made by now-interim President Nicolas Maduro immediately after the death of Chavez:

At the political level, there has been an ongoing campaign of lies and rumor. We have no doubt – the time will come for a medical board to be formed to prove that he (Chavez) was attacked with this disease. He publicly expressed this point of view. And we have no doubt that the historic enemies of the country sought a way to damage the health of our commander. .. There have been several cases like this – the last and most notorious being that of Yasser Arafat, the leader of Palestine.

Then, in a news item from Bolivia’s La Razon headlined, President Morales Says Empire Has All the Tools’ to Have Poisoned Chavez, Morales is quoted as saying:

(Nicolas) Maduro and our Venezuelan brothers and other authorities will do a thorough investigation, but I am nearly convinced that comrade Chavez was poisoned … The president also noted that the ‘empire has all the tools’ necessary to conduct operations to defeat governments, leaders and social movements that oppose capitalism, “but when it fails to overcome them, it takes up the task of ending the life of a leader.

Finally on this – for the moment – from Russia’s Novosti in an article headlined With Chavez’ Death, Communist Chief Sees a U.S. ‘Cancer’ Plot, Communist Party Chief Gennady Zyuganov is quotes as saying:

How did it happen that six leaders of Latin American countries which had criticized US policies and tried to create an influential alliance in order to be independent and sovereign states, fell ill simultaneously with the same disease? … In my view, this was far from a coincidence.

  1. Fairly absurd conspiracy theory, bad Cuban healthcare is a more likely culprit.

  2. I had heard that the Cuban health care could be very good- for some people.

  3. LOL But life expectancy in Cuba is better than the USA.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L.....expectancy
    37 Cuba 78.50 76.55 80.52
    38 Denmark 78.25 75.99 80.50
    39 Taiwan 78.19 75.25 81.51
    40 United States 77.97 75.35 80.51

  4. There have been several reports his treatment was botched in Cuba seems more likely this is what happened.

  5. @Will
    Care to provide some links. If Chavez had a sarcoma, Cuban doctors could diagnose this, but Cuban treatment wouldn’t be cutting edge. Sarcomas are rare and difficult to treat. The same would be true in the USA. Treatment at the Mayo Clinic versus treatment at a rural to low grade Florida hospital would have the same results as Cuban….

  6. There are lots of reports from various sources, some credible, some not. At the very least he opted for less than the best care available, seems like this is the more likely explanations for his demise. Since his medical records were treated as state secrets it’s hard to know the truth about his treatment. Eventually more will likely be known but we likely will have wait for some time before we find out.
