The noisy American

Well, I am referring to Chávez, as he is, after all, a South American. He confirmed there was a US agent who was detained on a bus heading from Colombia to what I assume is Barinas. Venezuelan diplomats in Washington informed the US government about it directly and not through the customary channel, the US embassy in Caracas, which probably just means Venezuelan Bolivarian diplomats didn't know the usual procedure.

In any case: this looks like fun. How on Earth does a US agent arrive to Venezuela with a passport that has entry stamps for Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria? What do you think? Is he really a mercenary? A weapons dealer? A joke?
