CNN reports that U.S. terror report cites Venezuela, Iran

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Venezuela’s associations with terror states, Iran’s meddling in Iraq and the resurgence of al Qaeda in Afghanistan top the concerns in a new State Department report on terrorism threats in countries around the world.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is not cooperating with U.S. anti-terror efforts and has “deepened Venezuelan relationships with state sponsors of terrorism Iran and Cuba,” the annual report says.

The report notes Chavez’s “ideological sympathy” for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the Colombian-based National Liberation Army, which “regularly crossed into Venezuelan territory to rest and regroup.”

While the report says it “remained unclear to what extent the Venezuelan government provided support to Colombian terrorist organizations,” it notes that Venezuelan weapons stocks have turned up in the hands of Colombian terrorist organizations.

Now all the Department of State has to do is explain why the US isn’t on the list of states that sponsor terrorism for the the way the US protected the men responsible for for blowing up Cubana Flight 455. Saying that the US can’t extradite them because of reports of torture in other countries, doesn’t hold water anymore.

I’m waiting for the first time the European Union denies a US request for extradition based on the Hedgemony’s use of torture. I can assure you it is only a matter of time.

So, the US put a second carrier right off the Iranian coast. This is, no doubt, the move of a righteous and peaceful man.

Cuba is a state sponsor of terrorism? Cuba is hard-pressed to even feed its own people, much less sponsor terrorists elsewhere, and hasn’t utterly collapsed into dismal starvation like Haiti only because Venezuela is propping it up with oil shipments. But oops, I forget, I’m talking about reality, and that has nothing to do with Bushevik propaganda, which is all about wishful thinking (otherwise called “lies”)…
