Venezuela MPs accuse US of 'plot'

BBC News
Two leading Venezuelan MPs have accused the US State Department, the CIA and a Congresswoman of a plot to damage the government of President Hugo Chavez....

The allegations were directed at the US embassy in Caracas and Florida's Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Mr Maduro and Mrs Flores said they had audio tapes proving that members of Venezuela's opposition living in Miami were undercover agents of the CIA and had been secretly plotting to scupper last weeks parliamentary elections. Since last Sunday's elections which were boycotted by almost all the Venezuelan opposition parties, President Chavez and his followers have been accusing US diplomats of holding secret meetings with the opposition and foreign election monitors from the European Union and the Organisation of American States...

Although Mr Chavez's supporters say they have won all 167 seats, 75% of Venezuelan's voters abstained from the elections.

I wish the US would just leave all of South America the fuck alone!
