Frum & Perle: Twenty-Three

AETE pg 118, which shows that this parody was even more genius than I'd thought. F & P hint, without any proffered evidence whatsoever, that Hugo Chavez is in league with al-Qaeda:

If al-Qaeda is beginning to make itself at home in remote areas of Venezuela, it is because the government of General Hugo Chavez has invited it in.

Terrorists find sanctuary for almost as many reasons as there are sanctuaries for them to find. Sometimes a government simply is unable to root them out [as in the Philippines].

At the other extreme, governments collude with the terrorists on their soil, as the Taliban did, as the Sudanese have done, as Iraq did, as Syria and Iran now do, and as General Chavez seems tempted to do.
