US televangelist Pat Robertson apologizes for assassination remark
Thursday, August 25, 2005
"Is it right to call for assassination? No, and I apologize for that statement", said Robertson.
On Wednesday, he initially denied having called for Chavez to be killed and said The Associated Press had misinterpreted his remarks.
"I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should 'take him out,'" Robertson said on his show. "'Take him out' could be a number of things including kidnapping."
