Did Americans Just Try To Overthrow Venezuela’s Maduro?



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Lucas Koerner.

More details have emerged about a bizarre failed attempt to capture Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro that originated in the US.  Two Americans, former Green Berets, were captured as part of the plot which was apparently masterminded by a former Special Forces soldier named Jordan Goudreau.

The Washington Post said the plan, “could double as a screenplay for an episode of ‘Jack Ryan.’” The failed attempt was first reported by the Maduro government but even the US media has ridiculed the attempt. The Trump administration says it has no knowledge of the matter.
