2. Let me be the first to say

 

I hope these threads don't turn into CT fests. Whether you loved him, hated him, or are indifferent, I hope we can keep it to the facts.

8. Too late. Demands for an autopsy already demanded in one of those threads.

 

I'm sure you can guess who is the target of the reasoning.

11. It may be only one individual, and the actions were initiated before Chavez's death was announced

Venezuela to expel US Embassy official

Source: Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuela's vice president, Nicolas Maduro, says the government of President Hugo Chavez plans to expel a U.S. Embassy official for meeting with military officers and planning to destabilize the country.

Maduro identified the American as the Air Force attache and said he had been spying on the military.

He said the official has 24 hours to leave the country.

Embassy spokesman Greg Adams identified the attache as David Delmonaco.

14. A second one has been announced

(CNN) -- Venezuela expelled two U.S. officials on Tuesday as it accused enemies of "attacking" President Hugo Chavez and suggested someone may have deliberately infected the ailing leader with cancer.
Both U.S. officials, air attaches at the U.S. Embassy in Caracas, are accused of having meetings with members of the Venezuelan military and encouraging them to pursue "destabilizing projects," Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said.
"We will not allow any foreign interference in our country," Jaua said. "Do not think that the situation of pain over the health of President Chavez will translate into weakness."
A senior Obama administration official told CNN that the United States "denies the charge that the air attache, or anyone else in our embassy or the U.S. government, was plotting against the Venezuelan government."

There are rumors of more to follow, but only time will tell.
