Dan Feder's Comments
From the transcription at Media Matters (a clip is also available at that link):
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop... We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
So, Pat, who else would Jesus assassinate?
Now, Jackson is back with new reports in The Birmingham News and the online Alabama journal The Locust Fork on new allegations against the Drummond Coal Co., revealed in a lawsuit from another energy company. According to the suit and interviews Jackson he conducted in Colombia with executives the Llanos oil company, Drummond has plotted to steal oil rights in northern Colombia with help from its friends in the Uribe administration.
The flimsy justification for force-feeding U.S. government and CIA propaganda onto the airwaves which is used for Cuba that the government does not allow opposing views in the media should be laughable to anyone who has spent one day in Venezuela. Newsstands and television stations overflow with big-budget anti-Chavista media. Not a single journalist has been jailed or censured under Hugo Chávezs presidency, while government censorship was rampant under several previous rightwing administrations.
But apparently the impending launch of Telesur which in truth represents more voices, more freedom of information, instead of less has the wingnuts that seem to control the House these days in a panic.
