VENEZUELA / CUBA: Opposition Exposes Chavista Turmoil With Silva Tape.
Opinionated Chavista...and foul-mouthed late night Caracas TV host Mario Silva suddenly took himself off the air...after the opposition leaked a tape that had him briefing a Cuban official...and blasting powerful Chavista congress leader Diosdado Cabello for corruption and even planning a golpe.
Silva claims the recording is a fake...created by 'Zionists' and the CIA.
But it illustrates the ongoing power struggle...and divisions among Socialists...following Hugo Chavez's recent death.
