I apologize unconditionally to Hugo Chavez, flambouyant president of Venezuala, for repeating lies that he accused the United States of causing the earthquake in Haiti by using a "tectonic weapon".
It was pointed out by "Anonymous" in the comments section of this thread.
The story about Chavez is a fabrication. He never said any such thing. You owe your readers an apology for spreading lies.
This story appears to have no basis in reality. I was wrong!
