José Vicente Rangel believes that “every day the existence of a double and sordid plot [conjura] against Venezuela is becoming more evident.”
The “double” character of the plot comes from the fact that it combines conspiracies plotted outside the country and local agents of the opposition.
“The link between internal factors, the political opposition, financial agents, media, and international powers has never before had this operational capacity and clarity in its objectives,” wrote Rangel for the local newspaper Últimas Noticias.
This high degree of coordination “has lethal effects that affect citizens in their daily life,” he explained. “What is plotted ordered from the outside, immediately effects inside [of the country].”
