The dirty tricks continue in Venezuela

The dirty tricks continue in Venezuela and the evidence is beginning to appear.  

On Thursday it was announced that the Venezuelan authorities have arrested a U.S. national whom it has accused of being an intelligence agent tasked with sowing chaos and civil unrest throughout the country.

The man, Timothy Hallet Tracy, was detained on Wednesday at Caracas airport as he tried to leave the country.

Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres told reporters: "Judging from the way this gentleman behaved, we presume that he belongs to some intelligence organization, because he is trained and he knows how to infiltrate, and how to handle sources and security information," 

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro has already accused the United States of inciting the violence that occurred in the wake of the country’s contested elections.

All this comes on top of the release by WikiLeaks of a 2006 U.S. State Department cable detailing the Bush administration's strategy for undermining Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez by supporting opposition groups.

The cable, signed by then-Ambassador William Brownfield, outlines a five-point strategy that includes “penetrating Chavez's political base,” “dividing Chavismo,” “protecting vital U.S. business” and “isolating Chavez internationally.” Those goals are to be obtained by strengthening “democratic institutions.”
