The United States has ordered the expulsion of Venezuelas consul general in Miami, AFP reported on Sunday. The expulsion comes amid reports linking the diplomat to an alleged Iranian plot to target sensitive U.S. facilities with cyber attacks.
According to the report, the Venezuelan embassy in Washington was notified on Friday that Livia Acosta Noguera, the consul general in Miami, had been declared persona non grata and had until Tuesday to leave the country...

the start of World War III
I always knew that we'd get there
Hey, hey, we're the good guys
There aren't that many in town
You can tell us by the scurrilous rumors
That keep circulating around.
oh that’s just great - how much did we pay them for that?
I just saw this on Spanish (from Spain) TV.
I’m surprised any action is being taken against Obama’s heart-throb. I guess the bloom is off the rose, or else somebody with some common sense has pushed Barry out of his Barcalounger and taken the controls for a moment or too.
The Obama administration on Sunday expelled Venezuela’s consul general in Miami after allegations surfaced that she discussed possible cyber-attacks on U.S. soil while she was stationed at her country’s embassy in Mexico.
The State Department said it declared the diplomat, Livia Acosta Noguera, persona non grata and had given her until Tuesday to leave the country.
The news of the diplomatic expulsion comes as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is expecting to arrive in Caracas late Sunday as part of a four-nation visit to some of his Latin American allies.

-——somebody with some common sense has pushed Barry——
You called it correct
The Miami Herald piece noted just above says the Congress has been on this for a while and the State Dept finally got around to act
I was out of the country this past summer (Latin America) and I can definitely see a major difference of opinion regarding Obama. Two years ago, they were ecstatic about him. That is no longer the case. There’s nothing much left of that vision of a rose....more like a thorny little stem now.
If there really is a Great Satan, Communists and Muslims will cry when he becomes angry - just saying.
Iran Placing Medium-Range Missiles in Venezuela; Can Reach the U.S.
Die Welt: Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela
Good news: Iran now offers a missile umbrella to fellow Muslim nations; UPDATE
Livia Acosta Noguera must have been skimming too much off the Department of Juctice drug trafficing efforts.
Go directly home, do not pass go, enjoy what’s left of your short life.
A Look at Iran
I imagine Venezuala and Cuba are 2 of the 4 - can anyone enlighten me to the other 2?
Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Ecuador
I think the same is true in Spain, too. Of course, they just got rid of their version of Obama (Zapatero), so maybe that’s a positive sign for us!
I just knew it couldn’t have been Obama’s idea.
Somewhere the piece says Imanutjob and Chavez are going together to the Nicaraguan presidential inauguration.
I don’t know the other of the possible 4
Does anyone really believe a “mexican cyber pirate” was asked for and gave “access codes” to “US nuclear facilities”?
Dispersed locations, codes variable- impenetrable. Cyber pirate— if he’s filmed he’s known and if known- toast either from mex’s or others.
Amateur hour. But more important is the presence of med range missiles put in Venezuela by Iran.
EMP attack as a goal— there’s something to be concerned about.
That and Joe Kennedy continuing to give away “free” Venezuelan heating oil from Citgo.
The expulsion comes amid reports linking the diplomat to an alleged Iranian plot to target sensitive U.S. facilities with cyber attacks.
It would be a shame if Ahmadinejad’s aircraft fell out of the sky on the way to Venezuela.
Or on the way out.
I got some bananas from Ecuador at Safeway a while back. They were, by far, the best bananas I have ever had.
I doubt I will buy them again.
It would violate international law to decapitate a foreign diplomat rather than expel him but honestly if I were President I’d probably have blown this guy’s head off personally to set an example for every other piece of crap who thinks he can use his diplomatic immunity to wage war on the United States.
In fact, Obama is a fool for not doing so, it would have sent his approval rating through the roof. ;d
(Yes, I am insane)
The prominence of Adán Chávez reflects his brothers dominance of Venezuelan politics since he was first elected president in 1998. Over the years, Hugo Chávez has consistently winnowed other top advisers and potential rivals who rose from his own political movement. Some who remain, like Vice President Elías Jaua, a former director of land expropriations, exhibit total loyalty...
Still, no one in the government, including Adán Chávez, has displayed the presidents visceral ability to connect with poor Venezuelans. That may not have mattered too much in Cuba, where the Communist Party holds unrivaled authority over the nations political system. But if Hugo Chávez is unable to quickly return to power in Venezuela, it remains to be seen how effectively his brother can hold off the spirited, if divided, opposition here and build support in a governing movement...centered around the president himself.
...biographers of Hugo Chávez attribute the presidents political evolution, if not his bruising political style, in part to Adáns influence and ties in the 1970s with guerrilla leaders like Douglas Bravo, who advocated using Venezuelas petroleum reserves as a tool for radical change.
While Hugo Chávez grew close to Mr. Bravo and then broke with him, as he has done repeatedly with other mentors, the president still incorporated such thinking into his own ideology, using oil revenues as the driving force in his socialist-inspired revolution.
Now, Mr. Bravo, 79, who is a critic of what he describes as Venezuelas new dependence on countries like China and Russia, said Adán Chávez was clearly in the line of succession....

SEBIN ops officer (Venezuelan intelligence). Burned. Good riddance! The next president needs to clear out those nests. So long, puta Rojas!!
Hussein is posing as “tough” by this move, since the election is only 10 months away.
It means nothing as far as the agenda goes: it is still fascism, full speed ahead.
Think Isoruko Yamamoto
Must have been an assassination plot agianst THE ONE.
Thank goodness they caught them in time!
( Mojitojoe, what is up in Miami...I mean the Venezualan ambassador outed? Hillery must be in need of a suppository.)
The exit of Zapatero could be a STEP in the right direction. The REAL problem is that Spain needs a speeding up of its reevangelization process. (St. Josemaría Escriva, please intercede for Spain with us.)
An interesting development. Thanks for the ping.
