It suggests in the articles perhaps Chavez supporters did this as an excuse to arrest Rodriguez and no doubt crack down on other dissidents. It's amazing how quick people leap to accuse the U.S. for causing 9/11 for alterior motives but accept the word of a communist dictator.

Surely, if a military officer takes part in a coup to remove an elected leader, he is committing an offence and SHOULD be arrested.
Would a US General, guilty of plotting the forced overthrow of GWB, be given a slap on the wrist and told not to be a naughty boy? Sheesh!!!
Doesn't a leader have the right to lock up those who attempt to remove him by violent and unconstitutional means?

Now the target is Chavez well just because bush say so you agree with him.
You are quite the politician when it comes to bushy regime of lies, if you like war so much go for it they need a few good men help to liberated cuba from Castro.

Typical of a dictator, expect more moves like this one as Chavez roots out any opposition.... Expect executions as fidel castro did for those who opposed him....
i really feel sad for the Venezuelans who have no idea what is in store for them....
According to the Vice-president, rebel military General Felipe Rodriguez, nicknamed "the Crow", is also a suspect in the case. Intelligence reports say that General Rodriguez met recently with Colombian paramilitary leaders.
