Why is the Bush Administration Afraid of Hugo Chavez? [VIDEO]

A special report by independent journalist Greg Palast in which he travels to Venezuela on special assignment from Link TV to get beyond the U.S. media image of President Hugo Chavez and to find out why the Bush administration is trying to oust him. The report offers a never-before-seen interview with Chavez, insight into Chavez’s relationship with the U.S. as well as Chavez’s plans for Venezuela, perspectives from opposition party members and raw footage from the slums of Caracas.
