The US media and US government love to vilify Chavez. I am not a fan of his policies nor do I detest his policies. But it is worth mentioning that a President of a foreign nation who survived a CIA coup in 2002 reaches out to another leader who is at odds with US policy and influences the decision to free Americans from an Iranian prison. Could the US perhaps learn a lesson from this diplomacy and return to the Golden Rule on foreign policy? I daresay this would go a lot farther than what current foreign policy does, embitter the whole world against the US.
