Mack: Venezuela is state sponsor of terror

August 24, 2011

Chavez aims, but Mack hits the target

U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL) says what we should do is declare “Venezuela as a state sponsor of terrorism due to its continued material and financial support of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), Hezbollah, the National Liberation Army (ELN), and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).”

The allegation from a sitting congressman that Venezuela is funding Hezbollah and the IRGC has scarcely been covered by the media, but it should be.  From Rep. Mack’s press release (with a hat tip to La Gaceta):

WASHINGTON – Chairman of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee Connie Mack (Fl-14) today pushed five amendments in a full committee mark up of The Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Year 2012 to bring fiscal discipline to the nation’s foreign policy and cease aid to those countries which harm America’s freedom and security.

Mack’s five amendments would:

  • Eliminate foreign aid funds for Argentina, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Boliviia
  • Cease U.S. contributions to the Organization of American States.
  • Eliminate U.S. funding for Global Climate Change Initiative Activities.
  • Establish a Congressional recorded vote which states “The delay in the authorization of the Presidential Permit is threatening the economic and national security benefits of the Keystone XL Pipeline.”
  • Name Venezuela as a state sponsor of terrorism due to its continued material and financial support of the Revolutionary ArmedForces of Colombia (FARC), Hezbollah, the National Liberation Army (ELN), and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Mack stated:  “Let’s engage our allies and friends, but let’s not continue to support organizations and countries that perpetuate destruction of freedom and democracy,” Mack said.

“With our financial house in disarray in our homeland, the least the Congress and the President can do is streamline our foreign dollars to our allies and engage in efforts to improve our economy at home; such as, the immediate passage of the pending Free Trade Agreements with Colombia and Panama.  Additionally, with American businesses saddled with environmental protections already, other countries should do their part to improve the global climate, not just the U.S.” Mack added.

  1. It is widely known that the U.S. is the number one state sponsor of terrorism across the globe. This has been the case for many many decades.


    • The United Nations has sanctioned Al Qaeda and the Taliban as terrorist organizations. The UN also approved of U.S. intervention in Iraq to disarm Saddam Hussein. The UN has not designated the U.S. as a terror sponsor.

      So your statement, in addition to including no evidence, data, or examples, has no basis in terms of international law on terrorism.


  2. “It is widely known”

    That if the Koran is true, Muslims can lie all they want about the West and CLAIM that “the U.S. is the number one state sponsor of terrorism across the globe” and many will feel obligated to believe it whether true or not.

    The Koran however can be proved through reason and objective evidence to be impossible. The only way to prove the Koran true is to accept it as a pure article of faith. Which is meaningless unless you are brainwashed…or decide to believe it as..an article of faith openly…which is sad.


  3. Jan has a real problem accusing USA of being the real sponsor of terrorism, duh, why do you think terrorists hates us, because we do not make their job easy. Jan is just repeating like a parrot Communist-Muslim propaganda
