Americans Should Consider Fleeing Venezuela As New Sanctions Loom, State Department Says

WASHINGTON – Americans in Venezuela should “strongly consider” leaving the country, the State Department said Tuesday, and agency officials are trying to facilitate travel arrangements for U.S. citizens who want to flee the increasingly dangerous and unstable situation in Caracas.

“We’re pursuing all possible options to secure travel options for U.S. citizens,” Robert Palladino, the State Department’s deputy spokesman, told reporters on Tuesday.

Palladino made the statement just hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the U.S. would withdraw all of its remaining U.S. embassy staff from Venezuela by the end of this week. Pompeo said the conditions in Caracas have become dire and threatened the safety of American diplomats. The country has suffered massive power outages since Friday, exacerbating an already dire economic crisis and rampant food shortages.

The last part of Pompeo’s statement – that American diplomatic presence in Venezuela represented a “constraint on U.S. policy” – has fueled fresh speculation of possible U.S. military intervention, a step President Donald Trump has said repeatedly is an option.

At a briefing Tuesday afternoon, Elliott Abrams, the U.S. special envoy for Venezuela, did not say how U.S. policy was hampered by having embassy staff in Caracas. Asked directly if that was a hint of American military action in Venezuela, Abrams said: “Nothing has changed. We continue to say, because it is true, all options are on the table.”

Rubbing his hands together in great anticipation reminding one of Count Dracula right before a great feast.
