New theories on the mystery surrounding Hugo Chavez’ mysterious illness

There is plenty of mystery and theories going around regarding the mysterious illness and even more mysterious silence of the simian prince of Venezuela. The “Bolivarian” dictator Hugo Chavez has been holed up in Cuba for weeks now after undergoing what they are officially calling “emergency surgery.”

The Real Cuba has translated an article in El Nuevo Herald regarding some new information provided by U.S. intelligence sources on this still to be resolved mystery:

US intelligence sources: Hugo Chávez is undergoing a “critical clinical condition”

June 24 – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who is currently at a hospital in Havana, is undergoing a “critical clinical condition,” several U.S. intelligence sources said on Friday.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they could not confirm reports that the Venezuelan president is being treated for cancer of the prostate, which is the rumor that is currently being heard with increasing frequency in Venezuela’s high places.

But the health of the Venezuelan president, who underwent surgery two weeks ago in Havana, “is in a critical state, not grave, but critical, complicated,” said one of the sources, whose identity can not be revealed due to the sensitive location where he is.

On the other hand, the intelligence sources who have been following closely the situation in Caracas confirmed that Chavez’s daughter, Rosinés, together with her mother, Marisabel Rodriguez, mysteriously left Venezuela for Cuba on an Air Force plane .

“Marisabel and her daughter left Venezuela in a hurry said another of the sources. “That was 72 hours ago.”

  1. There’s obviously concealment going on, just as there was when Fidel Castro initially became ill and was close to death. This is much more feasible in Cuba than Venezuela, due to absolute government control of everything and lots of practice concealing or lying about any undesirable or inconvenient information. Also, Chavez knows Cuba will do whatever it takes to save his ass to keep that oil coming. Nevertheless, if the situation is bad enough, they can’t cover it up indefinitely.
