Hugo You Better Tighten Your Tin Foil Hat

Chavez: "CIA Out to Kill Me"

CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez on Sunday said he believes enemies including the CIA are out to kill him, and called U.S. diplomat John Negroponte a "professional killer."

Chavez said Venezuelan officials have intelligence that associates of jailed Cuban anti-communist militant Luis Posada Carriles also are involved in plotting to assassinate him.

He said the death plot idea has "gained weight" due to various factors, including the recent appointment of Negroponte, the former director of national intelligence, as deputy to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

"Who did they swear in ... there at the White House as deputy secretary of state? A professional killer: John Negroponte," Chavez said.

Chavez did not elaborate, but his government has previously accused Negroponte of playing a key role in the Contra war against the leftist Sandinista government of Nicaragua when he served as ambassador to Honduras — a haven for clandestine Contra bases — from 1981 to 1985.

U.S. Embassy officials could not immediately be reached for comment, but they have denied Chavez's repeated accusations that they are plotting to oust him.

Chavez was asked about reports of assassination plots during a televised interview.

"They have assigned special units of the CIA, true assassins, who go around not only here in Venezuela, in Central America, in South America," Chavez said, without elaborating.

Wild Thing's comment.......

LMAO, Hey Chaves...just keep looking over your shoulder. BANG...BOOM..BANG... Relax Hugo, it was just a car backfiring, now come out from under the table please. Please don't tell Hugo all his closest friends and advisers have been replaced by CIA doubles.

He's doomed. heh heh

Maybe he's right. Does that mean he admits that he's a big a-hole and thorn in our side?
Maybe he better keep watching--we do have the best snipers in the world.
Maybe he better rethink his position with Iran and the middle east to destroy us.

Paranoia only gets you wrinkles...

I hope he lies awake at night listening for things that go boom.

I have a feeling tho that if he keeps going the way he is in his country, someone will definitely be gunning for him. Being hungry and not having much money tends to make one cranky.

I sure hope ChimpyMcBushHitler is helping to reinforce that belief. I'd sleep better knowin' he don't sleep at all. Bonus: Worry leads to stress related disorders, such as heart problems.

He probably keeps looking over his shoulder for flying monkeys. Just another psychopathic despot, using power and fear to get his way, but decrying it's imagined use against him. We better start rethinking our policy of no political assassinations. Our enemies took their gloves off long ago, it's about time we returned to the days of bare-knuckled America.
