VENEZUELA’S MINISTER SAYS MAJOR POWER OUTAGE LIKELY CAUSED BY ‘CYBERATTACK’, POINTS FINGER AT US

A cyber-attack is likely the reason for the major blackout that left most of Venezuela in darkness, a Maduro government official said, hinting that the US may be involved in the offensive.

As Venezuela is still reeling from a nationwide blackout, Nicolas Maduro’s government says the emergency was the result of an external influence. The major power outage was likely prompted by a cyber-attack against the Guri hydroelectric plant which produces 80% of the country’s electricity, Jorge Rodriguez, Venezuela’s communication and information minister said on Friday, according to local media.

The official went on to hint that US Senator and fierce anti-Maduro campaigner Marco Rubio may be linked to the offensive. Rodriguez found it suspicious that shortly after the failure Rubio shared specific information on Twitter about the emergency that even local authorities were not aware of at that time.

How did Marco Rubio know [of the attack] a few minutes later that the backup generators had failed? At that time, no one knew yet.

Branding the country-wide power outage “the most brutal attack on the Venezuelan people in 200 years."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was this coordinated by someone in the US, most probably?!?

As someone who has lived with an American government which invests most of its its time in regime change, economic and physical warfare, and outright resource theft, I would not put it past the US to have contracted to have this done.
