Venezuela to file a formal complaint with the UN, about Maduro's “illegal” detention
Venezuela to file a formal complaint with the UN, about Maduro’s “illegal” detention

I got up this morning, turned on my computer and saw this story: Venezuelan Official Detained at JFK
NEW YORK (AP) – Venezuela’s foreign minister said he was illegally detained for 90 minutes by officials at a New York airport and accused them of treating him abusively by trying to frisk and handcuff him.

>SNIP< Maduro said when one official ordered him to go to another room for a strip-search, he refused. >SNIP<

He said about an hour and 20 minutes into his detention, he received a call from U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Thomas Shannon, who apologized and said State Department officials were on their way to resolve the matter.

Five minutes later, State Department officials arrived and ordered Maduro and the others to spread their arms and legs to be frisked by police, he said.
This story speaks for itself. Paybacks are a bitch but, honestly, you’d think we’d have more pride! I can clearly see now that we are a nation of Nazi thugs. I’m going back to bed now…
