US Coup Planned for Venezuela?

Larry Johnson doesn't buy this story (two posts earlier with same title) at all. He believes Venezuela produced the memo as disinformation and possibly to create a red herring if something goes wrong in the upcoming elections.

How something could go wrong I have no idea considering the control Hugo Chávez has over all things Venezuelan.
As the official bubble burster let me state for the record, this is patent nonsense. State Department officers do not write memos to Hayden. Particularly mid-level Foreign Service Officers. A CIA officer under diplomatic cover sends his communications to headquarters via an encoded message. We call these messages cables, harkening back to the days of telegraphs and telegrams.

Via No Quarter.
