another sector of the population." A statement by the Attorney General, in the area called LaLimonera, Baruta municipality, Miranda state, reported "twodeaths occurred when a group of people linked to theopposition, in a hostile and violent manner, hindered freevehicular traffic." Much of the government versions describe theopposition as firing at the pro-government Chavistas. Twochildren (11 and 12) in the parish of Antonio Borjas Romero of the Maracaibo municipality, Zulia state, were also killed in theviolence.With an apparent strategy by pro-Capriles supporters tocircumvent the tight media constraints against the Venezuelanhomeland that were perpetuated by Hugo Chavez's iron fistedrule and continue under Maduro, many have taken to exposingthe truths of what they are witnessing by using cellular phones(with video and still photography) and posting to internationalsocial sites.Borrowing a page from the late Hugo Chavez's propagandadoctrine that he adopted from his mentor, Cuba's Fidel Castro,Maduro quickly blamed and accused the US CIA of beingcomplicit in anti-Maduro shenanigans. In fact, President Madurowarned of more to come, and announced an arrest."We have captured an American who was financing violentgroups. I have ordered the arrest of this man and we will tryhim. I have ordered the interior minister to arrest anyone seen inthe video he filmed and any person involved in fascist violenceagainst Venezuela." The man has been identified as TimothyTracy, and he is being accused of espionage.Tracy (35) is reportedly from California. Friends and family of Tracy told the Associated Press that he has been in Venezuela"since last year making a documentary about the confrontationbetween the opposition and a socialist government that isstruggling to maintain its once-high popularity after the death of charismatic President Hugo Chavez."Venezuela's interior minister accused Tracy of working onbehalf of U.S. intelligence, "paying right-wing youth groups tohold violent demonstrations in order to destabilize the countryafter Maduro's narrow election win."Hugo Chavez frequently accused the US of trying to invadeVenezuela, as well as assassinate him, to justify the massivesquandering of Venezuelan's oil wealth on Russian weaponsand military hardware, among other waste and abuse of Venezuela's financial coffers.What remains in this contested presidential election inVenezuela is a deep ideological divide that questions thelegitimacy of Maduro's regime before a world audiencedemanding transparency and fairness.
