Eva Golinger: Did the NSA kill Chávez?

The author of “The Chávez Code,” Eva Golinger argues in an article published January 2, in the pro-government paper Correo del Orinoco, that the National Security Agency could have assassinated President Chávez. Golinger offers the usual conspiracy theorist construction in the form of a “we know they have the capacity to do it, they had the will to do it, then they probably did it” argument, without adding much new evidence to the case.

More interesting are comments by readers in the Correo del Orinoco web page. Being a public, pro-government paper (part of SIBCI), most of the comments accept as a fact that Chávez was assassinated by the Empire. 

Here are some of those comments:

Of course they killed our Chávez, of course the US government [killed him] using one of its terrorist appendix, as has been proved in multiple occasions: the Pentagon, the CIA, etc. That is its modus operandi. There are many examples: JFK, Allende, Gadafi, and a really long list.

Prometeo said:

The Roman imperialist and their Jewish lackeys assassinated Christ, and that is how Christianity was originated, which undermined the Roman Empire until it extinguished it, and this produced a great Jewish diaspora with persecutions and tribulations: the innocents and the sinners paid alike.
Now the Imperialist Yankees possibly killed Chavez, and chavismo will become stronger.
Brothers in the struggle, Venezuelans with patriotic conscience, the rest of the story will be written by us.

I have no doubt that the cancer suffered by our beloved comandante is very strange, there is no family history [of cancer] and they [the doctors] were not able to control it with anything, it’s impossible to get cancer in a natural way. I firmly believe that this illness was induced by a secret weapon.
The gringos will one day reveal the whole truth.

They have had this as a secret for more than one hundred years. The deaths of my COMANDATE chávez, the death of BOLIVAR, the White House, as it calls itself, has billions of hidden crimes. They think we are stupid [pendejos].

Of the 17 comments published by January 2, 22:26, only one expresses reserves about the theory:

The truth is I would like to read more about this research, it´s not all that clear to me.


  1. Obviously the CIA did it. They drove a wooden stake through his heart and put a necklace of garlic. The SOB died on the spot.

  2. No..... it was the little bird that did it! I thought everyone knew that!
