The US denying the Venezuelan president the right to fly over Puerto-Rico is an insulting juvenile escapade and yet another example of the incredible clumsiness of the US government towards Latin America, investigative journalist Dave Lindorff told RT. International affairs commentator and editor of the 'This Can't Be Happening!' web outlet says he's embarrassed to see America's major Latin American oil trade partner, the unquestionably democratic Venezuela being treated in a 'kindergarten-level' way. On Friday Venezuela's FM told media an aircraft carrying Maduro to China was denied a path over the commonwealth. However, later in the day the US granted approval for the last-minute flight plan which allowed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to fly over Puerto Rico on his way to China. http://rt.com/
