I posted in 2015: Venezuela issuing passports, voter registrations, to Hezbollah & Syrians
I can spend all day linking to my prior posts on this topic.
Finally, after all these years, CNN investigates: Venezuela may have given passports to people with ties to terrorism
One confidential intelligence document obtained by CNN links Venezuela’s new Vice President Tareck El Aissami to 173 Venezuelan passports and ID’s that were issued to individuals from the Middle East, including people connected to the terrorist group Hezbollah.
Yes, I posted about El Aissami’s role in 2013.
But back to CNN
The accusation that the country was issuing passports to people who are not Venezuelan first surfaced in the early 2000s when Hugo Chavez was the country’s president, interviews and records show.A Venezuelan passport permits entry into more than 130 countries without a visa, including 26 countries in the European Union, according to a ranking by Henley and Partners. A visa is required to enter the United States.
Glad to see CNN is finally starting to pay attention.
