DEA gets kicked out of Venezuela
    #4524445 - 08/12/05 01:11 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

CARACAS, Venezuela - Washington's ambassador to Venezuela on Thursday rejected President Hugo Chavez's allegations that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration used its agents to spy on Venezuela.

William Brownfield told the local Union Radio broadcaster the "DEA only has the task of fighting illegal drugs," and that the United States regrets Venezuela's decision to suspend cooperation with the agency.

Chavez accused the DEA of espionage on Sunday and suspended anti-drug cooperation with the U.S. agency. Last month, prosecutors opened an investigation into the DEA's activities in Venezuela.

Like oh so many other recent threads in this forum, we have yet another thread title which is (to use tactful language) misleading. The DEA hasn't been kicked out of Venezuela.

I swear some of you guys should be writing headlines for the New York Times, the LA Times, AP and al-Reuters. You'd fit right in.

I'm not saying you're a liar, I'm just saying you didn't read the article you linked to. The DEA hasn't been kicked out of Venezuela. If you had read the article you would know that.

Spelling mistakes.

Also, nowhere in that article did it say anything about the DEA being kicked out.

Then why does the title of your thread read as it does?

We have several possibilities here:

a) you didn't read the article thoroughly

b) you read the article thoroughly but didn't grasp what it said

c) you read the article thoroughly, understood what it said, then deliberately chose a thread title that fits your own agenda rather than the facts reported in the article.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt and assumed option a), since assuming option b) would mean I thought you were stupid and assuming option c) would mean I thought you were deliberately misleading the readers of the thread.

My error for giving you the benefit of the doubt. I won't make the same mistake next time.

Perhaps you are trying to tell me you don't like the term I used. Did you read the update?

I read the second article you linked, yes. Did you?

Imagine my surprise when I discovered the second article also neglects to mention the DEA being kicked out of Venezuela.

The DEA has not been kicked out of Venezuela. The article just says American visas may be revoked by Venezuela; which would include the DEA. I'm not sure I've agreed with anything Phred has ever said politically, but he is correct.

IT didn't say they were kicked out, but LSDEmpire wasn't THAT far off topic. The gist of the article is the same..

"DEA are assholes and Venezuela doesn't like them"

That's the gist of it either way and he conveyed that. This is the Shroomery not the news.
