Blocked Venezuela Bridge Was Never Opened in First Place

Several days ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo retweeted a photograph that purported to show how Venezuela’s president Nicolás Maduro had blocked a bridge with Colombia to prevent relief supplies from entering his country.

In fact, the bridge, which was completed in 2016, has never been open to traffic because of disputes between the two nations. It was Colombia that erected the fence and concrete blocks to seal off access, not Venezuela. And the barriers have been in place since 2016. You can even see the barrier in photos on Google Maps.
