Apparently Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez underwent abdominal surgery in a hospital in Cuba around June 10. Rumors indicate that he is in critical condition. For some reason the A.P. choses not to print the story. What does the situation indicate? The medical treatment in socialist Venezuela is so bad that the president doesn't risk surgery in his own country. Radical communist Cuba and Venezuela are closely alligned. Left wing radicalism is so important to a dying man that he would not ask for treatment in the greatest Country in the world. The A.P. refuses to discuss the issue because they don't want to open a can 'O political worms that might connect Obama to Chavez.
