    Declassified Documents Prove the Obvious:

    The NYT gets around to reporting it eventually, I seem to recall they were celebrating the coup right along with the Whitehouse at the time:

    The Central Intelligence Agency was aware that dissident military officers and opposition figures in Venezuela were planning a coup against President Hugo Chávez in 2002, newly declassified intelligence documents show. But immediately after the overthrow, the Bush administration blamed Mr. Chávez, a left-leaning populist, for his own downfall and denied knowing about the threats.

    Using the freedom of information act, Eva Golinger, a Long Island attorney who maintains www.venezuelafoia.info/ and contracted Mr. Bigwood to secure the CIA documents, has obtained reams of documents from the National Endowment for Democracy, a nonprofit agency financed by the United States government, that show that $2.2 million was spent from 2000 to 2003 to train or finance anti-Chávez parties and organizations.
