A report written by Ted Snider, an expert in the analysis of patterns in US foreign policy and history, emphasized that “there is something that the White House and the media do not want you to know”.
Snider assessed the lastest regional and local elections in Venezuela, and assured that if the opposition had won, the media would have been full of front pages about the removal of Nicolas Maduro and Hugo Chavez’s party, but that is not the case. So the media have kept it secret to the American public, he pointed out.
Convinced that Chavez and Maduro’s party was going to win when Washington did not want it to win, they then put pressure on the opposition to boycott the voting to make it look illegitimate.
However, he noted, “the people elected Maduro and supported his government. When that didn’t work, the US governmen t pressured opposition parties to run in the hope of defeating Maduro. But the people elected Maduro’s party.”
Snider indicated that a delegation of experts from a U.S. legal group, among other election observers, said the election was “balanced and transparent.”
