Venezuela rebuffs Obama, repeats case against U.S. "spy"
Andrew CawthorneCARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela brushed off criticism from U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday and maintained its accusation that an American detainee in Caracas is a spy pretending to be a filmmaker.
During his visit to Latin America, Obama said on Saturday the allegations against Tim Tracy, 35, were "ridiculous."
But Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres insisted that intelligence agents tracking Tracy since late 2012 had uncovered ample evidence he was plotting with militant anti-government factions to destabilize Venezuela with violence.
