The Venezuelan military caste and drug trafficking

Journalist and fellow blogger Setty tweeted about this Spiegel article on cocaine traffic and the Venezuelan military. I re-tweeted it to several opposition politicians who usually re-tweet stuff I send them - I don't send them just about anything - but this time there was no reaction. I don't want to speculate much but chances are few in Venezuela will dare to ruffle Chavista feathers by discussing about this open secret in public.

The article - in English - is about how an European pilot unwillingly got involved in a cocaine transport organised by the Venezuelan revolutionary soldiers at Arturo Michelena International Airport, in Valencia.
