From Venezuela's online News Service:
Thursday, December 12, 2002 -- Uruguayan EP-FA congressman Jose Bayardi says he has information that far-reaching plans have been put into operation
by the CIA and other North American intelligence agencies to overthrow Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias within the next 72 hours.
Bayardi says he has received copies of top-secret communications between the Bush administration in Washington and the government of Uruguay
requesting the latter's cooperation to support white collar executives and trade union activists "to break down levels of intransigence within the
Chavez Frias administration."
In an interview with reporters from the Uruguyan newspaper La Juventud, Bayardi says he observes a domestic-political situation in Venezuela which
could easily erupt into a civil war and bloodbath ... "the whole process is a shocking reminder of what happened in Chile in 1973 ... I sincerely
hope it does not come to that!"
Otto reich was down there before the last coup attempt, remember? Remember how the White House made the formal statement, only 16 hours afterwards,
that they recognize the new government? If you don't know Reich, he is a Nazi Cuban, a felon of Iran Contra and appointed by this Bush to handle
South American Affairs.
If this is true, with so few democratically elected governments in South America, should we really be caring out the Corporate Oil Interests bidding
of overthrowing a country's leader who happens to not be bending over to let them run rough shod over his nation? I see that as being another Shah
of Iran situation.
