Chavez at the U.N.
Hugo Chavez admonished the United States for imperialist practices at the 2006 U.N. General Assembly. Gesturing with a copy of a Noam Chomsky book, "Hegemony or Survival", Chavez called President George W. Bush a "devil" and accused the "American government of protecting terrorists and of having a completely cynical discourse."
