Big stick energy: Leftover vengeance from the Bay of Pigs to Caracas.

1043jeffdorchen

Who better to press the pillow over the gasping face of Chavismo in Venezuela? Elliot Abrams, whose machinations in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador have led citizens of those countries to migrate north to seek asylum in the USA for decades. Elliot Abrams, who escaped felony charges for aiding the illegal arming of the Nicaraguan Contras by pleading to misdemeanor charges instead. Elliott Abrams who, like the Bay of Pigs invasion, is a leftover from an earlier administration. Since his pardon by Bush he'd been wearing a mustache and working at a Cinnabon store, just waiting for his next opportunity to cover up a massacre and lie to Congress.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen reheats today's leftover plate of US imperial disasters, from Nixon's hand in the Bay of Pigs invasion to DC's role in snuffing out whatever was left of the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela.
