    Chavez claims two interceptions of U.S. fighter jets in Venezuelan airspace

    Sat Jan 9, 2010 2:32am EST

    CARACAS (Reuters) - President Hugo Chavez said he ordered two F-16 jets to intercept a U.S. military plane that twice entered Venezuelan skies on Friday, but Washington said none of its planes flew over the South American country's airspace.



    Brandishing a photo of the plane, which he described as a P-3, Chavez said the overflight was the latest violation of Venezuelan airspace by the U.S. military from its bases on the Netherlands' Caribbean islands and from neighboring Colombia.

    "They are provoking us ... these are warplanes," he said.

    Chavez said the F-16s escorted the U.S. plane away after two incursions lasting 15 and 19 minutes each.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Defense Department denied Chavez's assertion, saying in an e-mail: "We can confirm no U.S. military aircraft entered Venezuelan airspace today. As a matter of policy we do not fly over a nation's airspace without prior consent or coordination."

    Senior Obama administration officials said the U.S. Southern Command was unaware of any incident involving U.S. government aircraft in Venezuelan airspace on Friday.

    Is Chavez still whining for media attention? Doesn't he have a factory to nationalize?

    But still the Hugo supporters come out of the wood works to stick up for the little nutter.

    It so amazing how many Moonbats want to make the US into a carbin copy of Hugo-land.

    The fact that he didn't shoot them down should be your first clue that this didn't happen. I leave near a major P3 base and P-3s are primarily submarine hunters and aren't used over land too often.

    They do have other capabilities, but for what Hugo is saying happened, there are plenty of other aircraft much more suited for the role in both the AF and Navy. I have zero doubt that his "proof" was photoshopped and the incident never occured. Obama won't even go after the new Al Quaeda stronghold in Yemen, he's not gonna instigate shit with Venezuala.
