Hugo Chavez (D-Venezuela) ships one million bbls oil to U.S.

A glorious day for Americans, as CITGO - a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela - will soon be pumping oil specially sent to the U.S. by far-left favorite Hugo Chavez. Venezuela's Ambassador to the United States, Bernardo Alvarez Herrera, says:

"As a Hemispheric neighbor and business partner, we are pleased that we are able to provide immediate relief by increasing gasoline supplies available in the United States in the aftermath of this devastating natural disaster... We're sending additional barrels of gasoline that otherwise would have gone elsewhere, and we will continue to do whatever we can to help alleviate energy shortages and the dislocations faced by the people of the United States as a result of Hurricane Katrina."

One-quarter of the amount will be coming on Sep 25, with the rest to follow no later than Halloween.
