A blog about life under, and resisting, a dictatorship
"Aponte was squarely in the middle of a lot of criminal and unconstitutional activities in which President Chavez and many of his top military and civilian associates were involved directly." Quote from Caracas Gringo.Yes, and what is this "bolivarian circle" called? The top circle in Venezuela? Actually, this group operates exactly like a Mafia, agreed? This is why I wonder what happened with the DEA when Caracas Gringo said- "they did not understand the big picture and the implications"..Finally, what if, -just think if Aponte did his job even better than we think -and hs the goods on all of this top Mafia circle-including Chavez.Note-the strategy of all is to "kill the messenger" and claim the message is all made up by the DEA etc-a conspiracy to paint Chavez's soliclism as a failure...
Anonymous,"they did not understand the big picture and the implications"The DEA was slow in reacting to Aponte's request for asylum and had him waiting in Costa Rica.The DEA focuses solely on the drug trading aspect of the case, whereas the State Department, realizing the value of Aponte, in the context of exposing the Chavez government or having the means to do so if necessary,quickly ordered him to be brought to the US.
Still haven't heard a word fromState Department, have you?Last word from State Department and President of US was"US sees no threat from Venezuela"those word were from President Obama himself..
