Robertson Wants Venezuela's President Assassinated

The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Pat Robertson said the U.S. should assassinate Venezuela's President, Hugo Chavez.

On his show, "700 Club," Robertson accused Chavez of trying to export communism. Robertson says the leftist leader's control over one of the world's biggest oil reserves makes him a threat. Chavez has said he thinks the U.S. is trying to assassinate him. He's also threatened to shut off the flow of oil. Venezuela makes up more than 10- percent of U.S. oil imports.
