U.S. Officials Called "Terrorists" Mock Venezuela Travel Ban

Then let's see tough guys Bush and Cheney travel to Venezuela and mock the ban from there

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — 

Conservative U.S. politicians banned from traveling to Venezuela by socialist President Nicolas Maduro are taking the restriction as a badge of honor.


Let Bush put on the tough guy act in Caracas
Maduro laid out a series of measures against U.S. diplomats and tourists Saturday night, including a promise to limit the size of the embassy here and impose a tourist visa requirement.

Maduro also gave a list of conservative U.S. officials who would be barred from entering Venezuela. He named former President George W Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and several congressmen.

"They can't come to Venezuela because they're terrorists," Maduro said before a crowd that had gathered to protest imperialism. "Out of here, terrorists."


Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said on Twitter that she was proud to be listed among such "good company." Another Florida Republican, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, responded with faux disappointment.


War criminal Cheney would not dare travel
to Venezuela, let alone outside the U.S.
"I've always wanted to travel to a corrupt country that is not a free democracy. And now Castro's lapdog won't let me!" he wrote on Twitter. Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, vowed that the ban would have no effect on his willingness to speak out against the Maduro government. The U.S. recently imposed a travel ban on a list of top Venezuelan officials accused of human rights violations.

Foreign Relations Minister Delcy Rodriguez said Sunday she would work to put the new regulations in place quickly, and added that the new visa restriction was a question of fairness.


"It's nothing unusual. Venezuelans have to pay in dollars just to apply for a visa to go to the U.S., even if they're not granted one," she said.




Maduro suggested Saturday that he could squeeze the number of U.S. functionaries permitted in Venezuela from a hundred people down to just a handful, a move which could complicate the processing of tourist visas for Venezuelans. 


The U.S. embassy in Caracas temporarily suspended new tourist visas for Venezuelans last year, citing staffing issues.

Tensions have been running high in Venezuela after a policeman killed a 14 year-old during an anti-government protest, and officials arrested the opposition mayor of Caracas. 



The bolivar has fallen to a record low on the widely used black currency market and Maduro's approval ratings are languishing in the low 20 percent range.


Government critics rallied outside the Vatican's diplomatic mission in Caracas last week to ask Pope Francis to intervene.

On Sunday, Francis, the first Latin American pope, said in a public address that he hoped for an end to political violence in Venezuela and the start of constructive talks between the government and opposition. 

He added that he was praying for the 14-year-old.
