    Funny how Venezuela has voter ID laws and somehow Maduro is a illegitimate Leader. WP is all about democracy but they interviewed a traitor to the Venezuelan people.

    Openly admits that the WP couldn't confirm his allegations but still chose to run the article as if holds merit.. Thats some fine journalism you've got there.

    What are you concerned about? This has one person on the record; that is locked down compared to most WP stories.

    Venezuela is a cautionary tale of what happens when people vote in leftist and still expect freedom.

    Maduro is a Cuban puppet. His inability to make decisions is confirmed in this WP article. Figuera reveals how Raúl Castro literally gives orders, commands to Maduro on the phone. Maduro's speeches and body language are closely monitored by Cubans. His inner circle is Cuban.
