Nicolás Maduro asks Obama to stop CIA and Pentagon attacks on Caracas
Venezuela's acting president Nicolás Maduro said that US officials may be advising Venezuelan dissenters "to withdraw from or sabotage" the presidential election to be held next April 14 in an attempt "to avoid defeat"
During his speech, the president in charge urged Obama to stop the "insane hawks" seeking to attack Venezuela.
Maduro's statement came in response to a recent declaration by Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson, who said that Venezuela deserved "a free, fair, and transparent vote."
Maduro advocated the statements of director of the National Electoral Council Tibisay Lucena, who rejected Jacobson's remarks as "a true provocation" and "meddling" in Venezuela's domestic affairs.
According to Maduro, US officials are advising Venezuelan dissenters "to withdraw from or sabotage" the presidential election to be held next April 14, in an attempt "to avoid defeat."

At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
