CARACAS, Venezuela – President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday alleged that U.S. intelligence agencies were behind a purported assassination plot that prevented him from visiting El Salvador. Chavez had planned to attend the inauguration of leftist President Mauricio Funes i n the Central American nation on Monday, but canceled his trip due to the alleged plot.
"I don't doubt that the intelligence organizations of the United States are behind this," Chavez said, accusing them of plotting with Cuban militant Luis Posada Carriles to murder him. He said Venezuelan intelligence services have "very precise information" that they were planning to launch rockets at the cubana de Aviacion plane he was going to travel in.

"I'm not accusing Obama," he said. "I think Obama has good intentions, but beyond Obama there's an empire — the CIA and all its tentacles: Terrorists and paramilitaries."

I doubt it. Obam and Hugo are tight. Obama would never give the OK on this one.
If Obama ever does sanction a hit and the world finds out, he would have to give a speech to Hispanics in a Latin American city explaining that the US is not at war with Hispanics.
