Hugo Chavez Death Watch, via WkiLeaks

Via Miami New Times:

Yesterday, Wikileaks dumped a trove of emails from a Texas-based intelligence firm called Stratfor that includes an insider talking about Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez’s cancer. If the firm’s Venezuelan sources are any good, it’s very bad news for the Bolivarian strongman. Citing a “well-connected (Venezuelan) source,” the analyst writes in December that Cuban and Russian doctors are bickering over how to treat Chavez’s cancer, which has supposedly spread into his lymph nodes and up his spine. The prognosis? The Cubans say Chavez has two years to live, while the Russians believe he’ll be dead in “less than one year.”. . .

Good riddance when it finally happens. . . — Greg Pollowitz
