Senator (Kerry) sees "opportunity for the transition" in Ven (span)
Washington.- El senador demócrata John Kerry, nominado por el presidente Barack Obama como nuevo secretario de Estado de Estados Unidos, consideró hoy que hay posibilidades de transición en Venezuela y puso a Colombia como ejemplo del tipo de relación que quiere mantener con los países de Latinoamérica.
Senator Kerry,...,considered that there are possibilities for transition in Ven and gave Colombia as an example of the type of relation that he would want to maintain in Latin America.
Destacó la colaboración en la lucha antinarcóticos y de seguridad en México, la cooperación energética en Brasil y la ayuda al desarrollo y el fortalecimiento de instituciones que Estados Unidos ha proporcionado en los últimos años a Centroamérica.
"Pero ha habido algunos estados atípicos que no han sido tan cooperativos con nosotros, y todos sabemos cuáles son", indicó Kerry.
He highlighted the collaboration on antinarcotics and security in Mex, the energy cooperation in Brazil and the development aid to institutions that the US has proportioned in CA.
"But there have been some atypical states that haven't been very cooperative with us, and we all know which ones", Kerry indicated.
I expect a column from Weisbrot by tomorrow on the Kerry hearing.

I guess Venezuelans will just have to say "thanks... but no".

3. A Venezuelan right-wing group of "exiles" in Tampa Bay took credit
for John Kerry's position opposing Hugo Chavez.
Here's a letter from their grubby President, Curtis Reed:

Tampa-based Free Venezuela, Inc: Our goal is regime change in Venezuela
Date: Tue, 23 Mar 2004 17:39:42 GMT
From: Curtis Reed firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: Error: It was Venezuelans in TAMPA
In David Coleman's article "Venezuela's relations with USA to improve if Bush 2 loses election this fall" you stated that Senator Kerry's statement regarding the Chavez regime amounted to "Parroting anti-Venezuelan Miami Herald propaganda."
In fact, the Kerry position statement was the result of the effort of Venezuelan-Americans from the Tampa area who contacted his camp and conducted an education campaign to be sure that Kerry understood what a threat the Chavez regime represents to US interests, regional stability, and how it endangers democracy across the hemisphere.
We have been working constantly over several years to establish good contacts with our representatives, and it was through those contacts that we made direct contact with John Kerry and delivered to him the message you will find below.
We are now in the process of publishing more Op-Ed articles, organizing round table discussions about the Chavez regime, and speaking out on nationally syndicated radio shows. Let there be no confusion: the "Miami Mafia" had nothing to do with this. It was the result of hard work by US citizens and Venezuelan expatriate organizations like FREE VENEZUELA that we influenced Kerry, and we will continue to push US policy until we achieve our goal.
Our goal: regime change in Venezuela.
Finally, let your communist friends know that their propaganda machines are failing, and the tide has turned against the Chavez dictatorship. We have convinced Democrats and Republicans alike that Chavez and his criminal henchmen are the antithesis to Democratic principles.
Have a nice day.
