US left "naked" by WikiLeaks, Chavez says
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton should resign over the WikiLeaks, which left the United States "naked.", dpa reported.
"Somebody should resign ... I'm not saying (President Barack) Obama, but they should do it out of shame ... It is their empire left naked. You should resign, Mrs Clinton, it's the least you can do," Chavez said late Monday.
He said he had read in the media about WikiLeaks documents that mentioned Washington's effort to isolate the Venezuelan government within Latin America.
"This shows up the efforts of the United States to isolate this revolutionary soldier, but they will not manage it," he told Venezuelan television.
The documents showed how the United States "disrespects even its allies," he said.
"This was signed by Clinton. Mrs Clinton thinks she is superior to Obama. Since she is white, she thinks she is superior to the black guy," Chavez noted.
He further congratulated WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, and called the United States a "failed, illegal state, which threw respect for its allies overboard in order to further pursue its domination and abuses."
