How Venezuela has fallen under the dominion and control of the Cuban Dictatorship :
In short, a leaked phone conversation landed in the hands of the Venezuelan opposition and was broadcast nationally. The iconic 50-minute conversation was between Mario Silva — pro-Chavez Venezuelan politician who is also the anchor of the most hardcore pro-Government TV program on the state's TV station — and Aramis Palacio, a lieutenant colonel of Cuba's Secret Police, the G2.
The leaked conversation between the two men was initially recorded for the acting leader of Cuba — Raul Castro — in order to brief him on Venezuela's situation following the presidential elections which placed Hugo Chavez' hand-picked successor Nicolas Maduro as president of Venezuela with a razor thin 1 percent margin. The phone call gives an insider perspective on the rampant corruption as well as Cuba's influence within the Venezuelan government.
Many believe the tape is sure to shake the foundation of the already weak Maduro regime. While Venezuelan's listened to the recording, many were expecting the president to order all networks to join the state TV's broadcast - a strategy the government has used in other press releases to drown the opposition's televised addresses.
Surprisingly, the tape played without interruption. Meanwhile "Mario Silva" and "Confessions of Mario Silva" became world-wide trend on Twitter. Since the broadcast Mario Silva has stated that the entire phone conversation was "fake" and was manufactured by "Israel's Mossad and the CIA"
