The Catholic Church as boot-licker of the empire

A confidential document from the U.S. Embassy in Caracas written by former Ambassador William Brownfield in January 2005 reveals that the Catholic Bishop Baltazar Porras sought help from the U.S. government to "contain" Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

The cable, which was sent by the [U.S.] Embassy to the National Security Council in Washington and the headquarters of the Pentagon's Southern Command, was published by Wikileaks on Sunday 12 December.
