The Book

<!--:en-->The Book<!--:-->

hugo-bookWe don’t know if Hugo has ever read it, or reads, but according to the Associated Press, Chavez gave Obama a copy of “The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent,” a book by Eduardo Galeano, which chronicles U.S. and European economic and political interference in the region.

White House advisers said they didn’t know if Obama would read it or not.

I met Eduardo Galeano several years ago and enjoyed our discussion and respected his views.  Have you read this book? Let us know what you think.  If not, you can purchase the book from Amazon.

      I’m ok with Obama reading the book. It’s always good to know other views even some way out there. Knowing does not me you believe. I don’t like the other smiles, warm hand shakes, and chit chat, as it looks like we’re (the US) ok with Chavez even after some of his off the wall comments. I bet these meetings would be different with out crammers.
