Senador Juan Lozano reclama por Venezuela a Santos y su silencio ante quebrantamiento democrático

The fight is between Nicolás Maduro and the Venezuelan people

BY CHARLES SHAPIRO









“This is not a U.S.-Venezuela issue. It is an issue between Venezuela and its people.” 



This curt dismissal by White House Spokesman Jay Carney of President Nicolás Maduro’s charges of U.S. plotting against Venezuela epitomizes the different approach between the Bush and Obama administrations on Venezuela.





I was U.S. ambassador to Venezuela from early 2002 to late 2004.






Both then and now the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela — Hugo Chávez then, Nicolás Maduro now — tried to blame the United States for the short-lived coup in April 2002 and the prolonged demonstrations now.
