Huge Ego Chavez Qualifies for U.S. CEO Slot

Venezuelan President Huge Ego Chavez joins the CEO of Chiquita Brands in funding Columbian terrorists. Hugo should examine Bush's treatment of Chiquita executives and demand similar treatment. The U.S. Justice Department sent no Chiquita leaders to Guantanamo Bay for their role in spreading international terror.

The company paid $1.7 million in protection money from 1997 to 2004. This after paying FARC from 1989 to 1997, the same terror group Chavez is accused of funding. Chiquita's penalty for financing terrorists was a $25 million fine while the CEO skittered off to run another company, Hollinger/Sun Times Media.

Today George W. Bush spoke on behalf of Columbia's President at the White House. He said:

America fully supports Colombia's democracy, and that we firmly oppose any acts of aggression that could destabilize the region. I told him that America will continue to stand with Colombia as it confronts violence and terror and fights drug traffickers.

As long as they aren't American corporations or their executives. Sounds like a banana republic?
