Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (R) decorates US civil rights activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson with the Liberator's Order prior to a press conference at the Miraflores presidential palace in Caracas on Aug. 25, 2005. Jackson, on a three-day visit to Venezuela to meet Chavez, politicians and community leaders, also called on President George W. Bush to issue 'a swift rejection' of televangelist Pat Robertson's statement calling for Chavez's assassination - which he described as 'repugnant, inmoral and illegal.'
