– Bolivian President Says “Almost Certain” Chavez was Poisoned (RIA Novosti, March 10, 2013):
CARACAS – Bolivian President Evo Morales said Saturday he was “almost certain” that “the empire” (the United States) had poisoned his political ally, late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, regional media reported.
President Chavez, who led Venezuela for 14 years, died Tuesday at the age of 58 after a two-year-long fight against cancer.
Nicolas Maduro, who had been vice president under Chavez and was sworn in as acting president Friday, earlier accused Venezuela’s enemies of causing cancer in Chavez, saying the issue would be investigated by a special commission.
According to a major Venezuelan newspaper, Morales, who traveled to Caracas to attend Chavez’s state funeral Friday, said he had always been aware of Chavez’s disease although he never revealed any details.
The newspaper, El Universal, reported that Morales recalled he had once offered Chavez some coffee, but the Venezuelan leader’s security guards objected.
“Brother Chavez said [to his body guards]: ‘How can you think that Evo will poison me?’ and then he had coffee,” the Bolivian leader said.
The swearing-in ceremony for Maduro was held hours after Chavez’s state funeral on Friday, which was attended by over 30 heads of state and government.
Venezuela will hold a presidential election to elect a successor to Chavez on April 14, the country’s electoral council said following an extraordinary meeting.

It would not be uncommon for people murderous as the Israelites have planned and executed the assassination of Hugo Chavez, but always under the direction of terrorists and murderers of Washington, they specialize in committing crimes overseas. They talk about terrorists, but they are the worst murderers and terrorists around the world, always going to get where nobody calls them.
I think he died of cancer. Sorry, I have to go; I’m late for an Elders meeting.
