230. Charles Shapiro May Still Be At State Department.
Edited on Mon Mar-23-09 10:08 PM by justinaforjustice
After his failed attempt to depose Chaverz and his government in 2002, Shapiro went on to become a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Estate at our State Department, heading a trade section. He may still be there, working no doubt to skew Obama's attitudes toward Chavez.

I must admit, I would feel much, much better if I could attribute Obama's mis-guided attacks on Chavez to Bush-administration carry-overs like Shapiro. It would be extremely depressing to learn that the attacks come from Obama's new appointees or his own independent views.

Thanks for, Judi Lynn, for your comments and for all the important articles you post here on DU about Latin America. They are extremely valuable as our mainstream media carries so little information about events here, and what it does carry is all too frequently, fact-less, right wing propaganda, not objective reporting.
