Chavez gave $1m to al-Qaeda
Hugo Chavez, leftist president of oil-rich Venezuela, No Logo anti-globalist posterboy and target of an unsuccessful (and some say US-organised) coup last year, gave US$1M to al-Qaeda
shortly after September 11. Chavez is also trying to turn his country into another Cuban-style dictatorship, suspending elections and ordering troops to fire on pro-democracy protestors.
Or so says a "high-ranked military defector".
The truth or a convenient pretext for toppling an irksome left-wing populist regime? (Didn't they say similar things about Allende?)
