Interesting if true from World Net Daily:
Recent high-level Venezuelan military defectors say President Hugo Chavez gave $1 million to al-Qaida shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the United States.
Air Force Maj. Juan Diaz Castillo, formerly a pilot for the Venzuelan leader, was smuggled to Miami last week where he is warning the U.S. of what he calls Chavez's dismissal of the constitution and his ties to terrorism in collaboration with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. "I must warn America about Chavez," Diaz said. "He is a danger, not just to his own people but to the whole region."
The story reports the news broke in Venezuela on Sunday. It also provides a link, militaresdemocraticos.com/en/index.html, an English-language site by Venezuelan military opposing Chavez.
