The Making of Juan Guaido: How the US Regime Change Laboratory Created Venezuela's Coup Leader

The Making of Juan Guaido: How the US Regime Change Laboratory Created Venezuela's Coup Leader | 29 January 2019 | GrayZone Project -- Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaidó...Even in his own party, Guaidó had been a mid-level figure in the opposition-dominated National Assembly, which is now held under contempt according to Venezuela's constitution. But after a single phone call from US Vice President Mike Pence, Guaidó proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela. Anointed as the leader of his country by Washington, a previously unknown political bottom-dweller was vaulted onto the international stage as the US-selected leader of the nation with the world's largest oil reserves...While Guaidó seemed to have materialized out of nowhere, he was, in fact, the product of more than a decade of assiduous grooming by the US government's elite regime change factories.
