“Con lo que yo tengo, tengo par que intervengan a Venezuela. Con la corrupción que hay en Venezuela del narcotrafico, con la corrupción que hay con todo. Lo que yo tengo en mis manos. Yo se lo muestro al gobierno americano y ellos pueden intervenir a Venezuela.” With what I have. With all the corruption there is in Venezuela, with the narco-trafficking… I’ll show it to the American government and they could intervene in Venezuela.” said Walid “The Turk” Makled.

Mr. Walid a Venezuelan citizen of Syrian descent, was arrested late last year on a U.S. warrant in Colombia and is alleged to be one of the world’s most important, yet little known, drug lords. Mr. Santos said months ago he planned to extradite him back to Venezuela, but U.S. officials recently indicated Mr. Makled should be delivered to the U.S. to face drug smuggling charges, creating a sort of tug-of-war between Venezuela and the United States. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704101604576247051284683920.html
