Hugo Chavez and Hezbollah

From this source, dated April 26, 2010:
“Today, Venezuela airports are being freely used by drug cartels to export drugs to Europe and the United States,” said Luis Fleischman, senior adviser for the center’s Menges Hemispheric Security Project. “Chavez has helped the FARC fight against Colombia, [while] Hezbollah cells have increased their fund-raising and other activities in the area.”

What’s more, Fleischman said, “Young Venezuelans are being trained in Hezbollah camps in Lebanon . . . and Venezuela has reportedly produced uranium for Iran.”

Because of the close ties between Chavez and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, “there is a real possibility” that Chavez could get a nuclear weapon from Iran after Iran acquires that capability itself, he said.

Obama’s “friendly interaction” with Chavez at last year’s Summit of the Americas has only emboldened the Venezuelan strongman in thinking that the United States will do nothing to oppose his regime or his anti-American activities, Fleischman said....
The responsibility for a lot of dead Americans - and others - is going to be laid at BHO's feet if he's allowed to continue to undermine our national sovereignty and national security.

And BHO will point his finger at us and blame Bush. He will never accept responsibility or accountability.

What's next? Chavez having a cup of tea with Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri?
