Ramos Allup of AD trashed, TRASHED by the US embassy in Caracas

In what is going to be one of the most interesting Wikileaks on Venezuela El Pais of Spain publishes  a devastating analysis of US cables on AD leader Ramos Allup, as being basically one of the main reasons why the Venezuelan opposition does not go anywhere fast ....  If you cannot read Spanish, you have the MUST READ worst cable in English here and an excerpt below:

secretary general Henry Ramos Allup, is unimaginative,

overconfident, and even repellent. Rather than seeking unity
among the opposition, Ramos Allup insults other party

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
