And talking about doublespeak and cover up, how about General Baduell saying today that the Armed Forces will not hide anything about the burnt soldiers!
Well, Raul, where the hell have you been the last two weeks after every single fact has been covered up and hidden and that media that you call on to “respect” those suffering is the one that uncovered the lies of the Government and the military? Did you not notice that a soldier had to die for the military and the Government to admit there was a problem? Where was your “investigation” before that?
Where were you Raul Baduell two weeks ago as Chavez told everyone that the injuries were “slight’? Where were you when the media made the accusation that the fire was provoked, which was denied by your fellow Generals including the Minister of Defense, but turned out to be the truth? Where were you when the soldiers were moved against doctors orders? Where were you when the soldier died? Where are you today when the Supreme Court is not obeyed? Where are you when people’s rights are being violated daily?
The truth General Baduell is that you are one of those people that goes through the world being careful to advance your own position without sticking your neck out. You did not stick your neck out in 1992, twice! You said nothing during April 2002 and only after your fellow Generals were killed in an air crash you took the credit for returning Chavez to power saying you were “institutional”. I guess that means you are institutional as long as it will promote you within the institution.
Whatever happened to that institution called the Constitution? It only took you two years to say today that you never accepted the Carmona Government! Maybe you are just slow, I just wonder how you will try to advance yourself when Chavez is finally gone, I bet you will act very fast to embrace your so called institutionality. But we will be here to remind you that you are as big a cynic as the rest of them.
