NPR's Martin Kaste reports that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says he's firmly back in charge of his country, following the collapse of a coup against him on Sunday morning. Speaking to reporters yesterday, Chavez thanked the foreign governments that had refused to recognize the legitimacy of the junta that tried to take his place. But he had no thanks for the United States.
