Reports from Cuba’s Venezuela: Oswald Walks

By Juan Nagel in Caracas Chronicles:

Oswald walks

Yes. This is how Telesur decided to frame their story. This is the picture they chose.

Imagine the scene at the Dallas Police Station, November 22nd, 1963. A man is captured in a movie theater and brought into custody, a man named Lee Harvey Oswald. The President of the United States has been murdered a few miles away. Imagine then, in this parallel universe, the Dallas police department deciding that Oswald can go home. In spite of all the incriminating evidence, and in spite of the crime committed, Oswald goes home.

That is the scenario we have before us today. Because, you see, according to the government, Maria Corina Machado is a treasonous assassin. She is guilty of a murder that has never taken place, carried out with weapons such as “emails,” “speeches,” and “rhetoric.” The same types of weapons that Leopoldo López used.

But you see, in spite of all their huffing and puffing, the government does not believe the whole “assassination” story anyway. What they showed today is that, deep down, they don’t have the guts to put Maria Corina Machado in prison. They have arraigned Diego Arria, but the person who supposedly wrote these “emails” saying they should “annihilate” Maduro – she gets to go home. Right.

Maybe they’ll do so in the future. Maybe, when we’re not looking, they will get rid of her. We pray this doesn’t happen.

In the meantime, the circus continues.
