Surprise, surprise. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, the man who says birdies speak to him, is blaming an alleged plot against him and his government by Americans for his cancellation of a visit to New York to speak at the U.N. General Assembly.

Maduro, the hand-picked successor of the late Hugo Chávez, said in a broadcast televised nationally Wednesday from an automobile plant that he would not reveal details of the plot so as not to compromise his information source.
