New Equadorean report implicates Venezuela in training rebels, according to the Miami Herald.

An Ecuadorean military intelligence report alleges that leftists from Ecuador and seven other Latin American nations received guerrilla training in Venezuela this year from backers of President Hugo Chávez.

The report does not link Chávez personally to the training in explosives, weapons and urban guerrilla tactics. But it notes that part of the training took place in two Caracas military bases, one used by the army reserves and another that houses the Defense Ministry.

And in a concluding section, it says that backers of the Venezuelan president, "with covert support from the government of Hugo Chávez . . . have strengthened incipient subversive movements."

Hugo Chavez' aggressive efforts at spreading the "Bolivarian Revolution" beyond his borders is one of the most underreported stories in the news today. Chavez has tried to undermine or coop governments througout Latin America ever since his rise to power in 1998.
