Hyde and Seek

Last Monday, a group of U.S. Congressmembers headed by Congressman Henry Hyde (R-Il) flew in to visit Venezuela, but encountered delays on arrival. Airport staff wouldn't let them immediately disembark, and they ended up leaving and flying to Aruba instead. (Gee, I wish I had that option when my flights get delayed...)

At any rate, Hyde and others in the U.S. are outraged at this supposed insult. The Washington Times proclaims with fervor: "On Monday, on a Caracas airstrip, Mr. Chavez demonstrated once again his authoritarian leanings. Congress and the world should take note."

But Simone Baribeau has a different (and humorous) take on what happened. Read it here.
