US violated Venezuelan airspace

Venezuela has denounced an alleged violation of its airspace by an American military aircraft.

Defense Minister Gustavo Rangel said the jet had been tracked by country’s air defenses over the Venezuelan-owned island of Orchila on Saturday. He said the US ambassador would be summoned to provide an explanation.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a fierce critic of Washington, has in the past accused the US administration of destabilizing his country. Mr. Rangel told a news conference that the US aircraft “practically flew over” Orchila and another Venezuelan island before turning back.

Right, obviously Hugo needs some more internal support so …us violates the airspace! Hugo, was not US air force, it was UFOs!!!
