What is also needed is for the Congress-and the media-to start investigating the Obama Administration's role in all of this. On July 13, the State Department spokesman confirmed that Chavez had called Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Thomas Shannon to "discuss the current situation in Honduras and the ongoing negotiations mediated by Costa Rica's President Oscar Arias." The confirmation followed news of Chavez boasting about the telephone call on Venezuelan state TV.
This tends to confirm what former Marxist SDS radical Tom Hayden, leader of "Progressives for Obama," has written about the Obama-Chavez relationship. Based on his own inside sources of information, Hayden said that he thinks Obama and Chavez are working together on Honduras and have an "understanding," which he even describes as "collaboration." The call Chavez made to Shannon suggests that Chavez is calling the shots.
