Hugo Chavez may call for Pat Robertson's Extradition
Venezuela Threatens To Seek Robertson's Extradition
August 29, 2005
CARACAS, Venezuela -- Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez says his government could request the extradition of the Rev. Pat Robertson for suggesting that American agents should kill him.
Speaking to delegations at a meeting of the Organization of American States in Caracas, Chavez said Venezuela will take "legal action in the United States" against Robertson and "could even request his extradition."
On his TV show, "The 700 Club," last week, Robertson called for Chavez' assassination, saying the U.S. should "take him out" because the Venezuelan leader poses a danger to the region. The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network later issued an apology.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who's visiting Venezuela, has offered support for Chavez, saying Robertson's statements were immoral and illegal.
If the U.S. can extradite Marc Emery for selling seeds that might turn into pot plants with the right amount of tender loving care, but will never kill anyone no matter how many plants are produced, then surely Hugo Chavez is standing on strong legal ground in considering an extradition request for Pat Robertson who has called for his assasination in order to take his oil.
I say again that Hugo Chavez is very admirable in my book if for nothing more than standing down the big, white bullies to the North.
GO HUGO GO!!
