The first Organization of Americans States' Summit of the Americas attended by Cuba ended yesterday on the anniversary of the 2002 US-backed coup against Venezuela's elected President Hugo Chavez, which lasted only two days due to massive street protests outside the presidential palace, and after the US government had quickly recognized the coup government.

After the 2002 US-backed coup, efforts by the US to topple Chavez never ended, and the US government continues to this day to try in various ways to topple Venezuela's current elected president, Nicolas Maduro. Perhaps that's why in the traditional group photo Maduro (blue suit, back row, finger raised) took a position from where he could an eye on President Obama.
