Oil and Venezuela

Through its contacts, the FDA has learned of a planned assassination attempt on Venezuelan opposition leader, Henrique Capriles. Mr. Capriles has been offered protection by the Venezuelan intelligence service, which he has declined. Apparently, the purpose of the assassination is to discredit President Chavez prior to the upcoming 2012 Venezuelan Presidential election (on October 7), by implicating him in the assassination. If this is true, it bespeaks of a desperate opposition, which shows no limits in attaining political power. Apparently, Mr. Capriles is far behind in the polls. In the alternative, it is possible the Venezuelan government may be creating fear in the people. The FDA has no evidence either way. However, the 2002 attempted Venezuelan coup was based on calculated false information that the Chavez government and its supporters were harming the opposition supporters. We are in the murky waters of a major oil producing country that does not tow the western line. We can see based on recent events that western governments have been self-serving: in Iraq the Bush administration fabricated the grounds for invading Iraq and even lied to the American people; in Afghanistan, the US invaded the country on mere grounds that Bin Laden was housed by the Afghans; in Libya, western governments aided significantly the military take over of Libya when Gaddafi became less cooperative in supplying Libyan oil to western sources....

Here is the information release from the Venezuelan intelligence service: 



Ante informaciones obtenidas en los últimos días por las fuerzas de seguridad venezolanos el presidente Hugo Chávez Frías instruyó ayer lunes a abordar eventuales amenazas contra la vida del candidato presidencial opositor Henrique Capriles.

Tal como lo relató el propio Mandatario vía telefónica al programa Dando y Dando, de Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), “hay por ahí la información de que quieren atentar contra él (Capriles), y no es el Gobierno, pero para nada. Todo lo contrario”.

Ante ese escenario, el director del Servicio Bolivariano de Inteligencia (Sebin), Miguel Rodríguez, se reunió con un equipo de seguridad de Capriles, gobernador del estado Miranda (que rodea a Caracas).

"Como Estado nosotros estamos obligados a entrarle a esa situación y a darle protección a cualquier venezolano y, sobre todo en este contexto... Lamentablemente aquí no tenemos una oposición seria, lamentablemente el candidato opositor lo que va es palo abajo y andan en un desespero y están recurriendo a la guerra sucia”, señalo el presidente Chávez Frías.

La información sobre el plan homicida ha sido tomada con seriedad por las fuentes de las que provienen: “La hemos hecho del conocimiento del equipo de seguridad del candidato burgués y le hemos ofrecido seguridad”.

Recordó que al salir de prisión en 1994 aceptó, por sugerencia del entonces presidente, el socialcristiano Rafael Caldera, un equipo de seguridad, luego de que la Dirección de los Servicios de Inteligencia y Prevención (Disip, antiguo Sebin) informara sobre supuestos plantes de atentado en su contra.

“Aquí el Gobierno es el primer garante, junto al pueblo, de la seguridad, de la paz del país, de la tranquilidad de los venezolanos y estamos todos los días en la lucha contra cualquier fenómeno, hecho o amenaza que afecte o pueda afectar esa tranquilidad”, expresó al lamentar que desde laboratorios de guerra sucia de la oposición se promuevan campañas que rayan en el delito.



Translation of information release:

Given information obtained recently by Venezuelan security forces President Hugo Chavez on Monday instructed to address any threats against the life of opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles.

As I told the president himself via telephone at Dando y Dando program, Venezolana de Television (VTV), "there is information out there that want to undermine it (Capriles), and not the government, but for nothing. Quite the contrary."

Given this scenario, the director of the Bolivarian Intelligence Service (Sebin), Miguel Rodriguez, met with a security team Capriles, governor of Miranda state (surrounding Caracas).

"As a state we are forced to dig into this situation and give protection to any Venezuelan and especially in this context ... Unfortunately we do not have serious opposition, the opposition candidate unfortunately so far is stuck down and walk in a desperate manner and are resorting to the dirty war," said President Chavez.

Information about the murder plan was taken seriously by the sources from which they come: "We have made known to the candidate's security team, and we have offered bourgeois security."

He recalled that his release from prison in 1994 accepted the suggestion of then-President Rafael Caldera the social safety equipment, after the Directorate of Intelligence and Prevention Services (DISIP old Sebin) report on cases of indecent plans against him.

"Here the government is the first guarantor, with the people, security, peace of the country, the tranquility of Venezuelans and we are everyday in the fight against any phenomenon, event or threat that affects or could affect the tranquility," he said lamenting that from laboratories dirty war of the opposition campaigns that promote and border on the offense.
