    I was born in Venezuela, but I am a US citizen and when I go there they give me a hard time and check my passport a lot and they ask me for my Venezuelan passport, but when I tell them I do not have one they start bringing people to make a decision to let me continue my trip. It is a drag that dude is really paranoid.

    Here we go again... Why was this marine in Venezuela? What was he doing there? Of all other Americans who travel to Venezuela, he alone was taken into custody... Why? Venezuela is a sovereign country. If we catch some foreigner up to no good here on American soil... What happens to him? Should we expect a different outcome if one of ours is caught on foreign soil?
