It’s deja vue! I seem to recall something like this going on in the 80s. I shared an office with the Tools for Peace administrator. From The Globe and Mail:
Bolivian president accuses U.S. of assassination attempt
La Paz — Leftist President Evo Morales said Tuesday the U.S. government had organized groups to kill him and said he believed Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s assertion that Washington was preparing to overthrow his administration.
“I’ve been informed recently how the U.S. had organized teams — groups to persecute Evo Morales, to kill Evo Morales. They haven’t been able to and now we’re organized, from unions to this political party and they can’t stop us anymore,” Mr. Morales said, without giving more details.
