Colombia says Venezuela mistook Santa's sleigh for US spy plane

Venezuela's President is accusing the US of spying on his government with unmanned drones. Hugo Chavez is also threatening to shoot them down.

Colombia hit back, saying it doesn’t have such capabilities, and that Venezuelan troops must have mistaken Santa's sleigh for a drone.

“These planes have been functioning inside Columbia throughout the past 10 years,” said Caracas-based attorney and author Eva Golinger. “There’s no question that it’s US technology. And the link was made to the United States. At the same time, drone planes could also be flown out of US military base on the Dutch islands of Aruba and Curacao, which are right off Venezuela’s northwestern Caribbean coast. ”
