What is unexpected is what occurred earlier today. Vice President Nicolas Maduro—Chavez’s heir apparent—informed a televised audience that Chavez was the victim of an attack by his enemies. “We have not a single doubt and at the proper moment we will convene a medical board to confirm that Chavez was attacked,” Maduro said. He linked Chavez’s case with that of Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat, whose death, Maduro said, was caused by poisoning by the Israelis.

Maduro then ordered the expulsion of U.S. military attaché David del Monaco, whom he charged with advancing “destabilizing projects” within the ranks of the Venezuelan military.
