Venezuela's Political Disaster - July 5, 2008

Dear Journalists,

Still amazed about the fantastic rescue of Ingrid Betancourt, and other hostages including three Americans, I am pleased to add the link below written by Washington Post Columnist David Ignatius:

While most of us are elated by the excellent news of the long awaited rescue of hostages there are still about 700 FARC hostages including many Venezuelans. In the meantime, there is anger, and frustration by disinformation released by Chavez's officials as reported earlier in my blog.

Next link is to opinion article "Venezuela - autopista de la droga" written by Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat commenting about the Telegraph article published last week "Hugo Chavez's Venezuela 'supplies half of Britain's cocaine:"

Chavez reacted calling the long needed resuming of sailing of the US Navy Fourth Fleet in Latin American seas a threat. Why would Chavez call a threat the prevention of crime?

Venezuelans need help from developed governments and international organizations to restore democracy and end corruption.
