Conspiracy Theories Spread

Steve Sibson loves conspiracy theories, so I'm suprised he hasn't jumped all over this one.  From this Daily Beast blurb:
Following the late-Tuesday-night announcement launching a formal investigation into accusations that former president Chávez was poisoned, newly appointed President Nicolás Maduro confirmed his own belief in the conspiracy. “We have the intuition that our commander Chávez was poisoned by dark forces that wanted him out of the way,” Maduro insisted. The 58-year-old president died on March 5 from complications of the pelvic cancer he had been battling since 2011.
CNN gives an expanded view of Maduro's thesis:
In the 1940s and 1950s, the United States and other countries had "scientific laboratories testing how to cause cancer," Maduro said. "Seventy years have passed. These kinds of laboratories of evil and death have not advanced?"
Maduro stressed that he was not accusing the United States.
"I am just saying something that is a truth, that is known," he said.
Sibby may have been thinking too small when he ran for the South Dakota State Senate seat. If he finds the right conspiracy theory, he can take over his own South American country.
