The comandante presidente announced to the press before a campaign rally in Catia La Mar that authorities detained a man in the border with Colombia, which he described as a “presumed American mercenary of Latin origin“.
Though no details about his identity were revealed, Chavez said he had “…the appearance of a mercenary” and that his passport “…had stamps from Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan.”
A notebook filled with coordinates was also allegedly seized.
Not sure if attempt to polarize campaign or stunt promotion for “The Expendables 2”.
