Chavez Death Watch: Spin hijinks in Caracastan?

Hugo Chavez Is Dead

ABC Spain confirms that Hugo Chavez did indeed return to Venenozuela today.  It also reports that he flew in an "air ambulance" rather than the presidential plane.

But the subtext in this story by ABC is very different from that of the Chavistas in Caracastan, who are proclaiming this a giant step in their coma-andante's recovery.  According to ABC, Chavez is not returning because his health is improving, but rather because his physicians have given up on saving his life.

According to ABC -- which has been claiming special access to Hugo's caregivers for several months -- Hugo Chavez's cancer has now been diagnosed as unstoppable and incurable, and his medical team has disbanded and sent him home to die.  ABC also claims that this bleak prognosis has been made known to Chavez's family and all top officials in the Venenozuelan government. 

So, if ABC is right, this means that Chavez's death is imminent and that his minions have stepped up their lies and deception.

Whole story HERE, in Spanish.
