Did Chavez leave the country or not?

The rumor was that President Chavez, former militarucho golpista (*), left NYC, but apparently he still is in town.

In an article from the Washington Post, Mr. Jeffrey Jeffrey Laurenti from the Century Foundation wonders if Chavez's know his shit.

"But Chavez would never be able to translate the popular reaction to his rant into political support for his positions because, while the moment "might be emotionally satisfying," the delegates "know this is not the real world," said Jeffrey Laurenti, a seasoned U.N. analyst at the Century Foundation."

I believe he thinks not.

(*) What is a militarucho golpista? A third tier military official who participated on a coup d'etat.
