Watch Venezuela's Cynicism at the OAS

Saturday, March 22, 2014
Watch (below or here) the arrogance with which Venezuela's Alternate Ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS), Carmen Luisa Velasquez de Visbal, moved to close yesterday's session from the public and the media.

Velazquez de Visbal said the motion, aimed at censoring Venezuelan opposition leader Maria Corina Machado, was one of "private transparency."

Cynical laughter followed.

Scenes like these make it very difficult to understand why the United States continues paying over 40% of the OAS's expenses.
