Twelve United States Senators have signed a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requesting that the State Department determine whether the government of Venezuela satisfies the statutory requirements to be listed as a state sponsor of terrorism.  In a press release issued on May 25, 2010, Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) said:  “It’s no secret to the American people that Venezuela wishes harm to the United States.
