Venezuela President Maduro Arrests 3 Generals in Coup Attempt
 
CARACAS – Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro announced the arrest of three Air Force Generals, saying they planned to execute a coup.
 
“We captured three aviation generals that sought to set the Air Force against the Government. They are with the military courts now,” said Maduro in a meeting with the foreign ministers of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur), who are in Venezuela to investigate the protests that have rocked the country for 7 weeks.
 
Maduro said that the plot collapsed when the three summoned the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, who turned them in. Maduro added that the group of generals “had contact with sectors of the violent opposition.”
 
The generals “claimed that this week was going to be the decisive week,” said Maduro.
 
Maduro claimed that the right to political participation and peaceful protest in Venezuela is fully guaranteed , but “plans to destabilize the country and justify a coup and assassination” would not be allowed.
 
“Some dream of military intervention from a foreign power,” said Maduro.

It's good that this vile plot against the people was nipped in the bud.  I'm sure they were connected with the CIA.  Sadly, the Bolivarian Revolution is still very fragile, and counter-revolutionary elements were not systematically purged from the armed forces.
