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.
