Isn't this a
touch embarrassing? Right after Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was overthrown
by a military coup, the United States bucked the tide of other countries in the region and endorsed the coup, blaming it on Chavez
. (Regional leaders, rightly, didn't much like Chavez; but they apparently found the means of his ouster even more troubling
.) Now the coup has been overturned and Chavez is back in power. What do we do now?
