How the Venezuelan government responds to criticism

Pick up the Americas director for Human Rights Watch (Chilean José Miguel Vivanco), drive him straight to the airport, and force him onto a plane. Criticism by a foreigner, apparently, is illegal, though it's not clear whether he was officially arrested.

I was going to comment here yesterday, but wanted to wait and see if anyone showed up to defend Chavez, but I see no takers yet.
