Hugo Chavez: Terrorist thug?

Fausta Wertz writes: “Hugo Chavez plotted with FARC and ETA terrorists to kill Colombia’s Uribe (roundup of headlines at my post).” She comments: “This is a most serious charge, especially since a Spanish judge has an indictment which has been backed up by Spain’s PM Zapatero. However, it’s being totally ignored by the mainstream media. It would make Venezuela a terrorist-sponsoring state.”
Among the stories to which Fausta links are those in this Christian Science Monitor and the Wall Street Journal. Given the silence of the mainstream media, the CSM and the Journal deserve recognition for getting to the story.
