Venezuela captures Colombian spies

Since the readings this week used Hugo Chavez as an example, I thought this current event would be an interesting tie-in. According to the article, Venezuela has captured a pair of Colombian spies, and Hugo Chavez is accusing the U.S. of backing efforts to destabilize his government.

How on earth did Chavez come to the conclusion that finding Colombian spies in his country meant the US is trying to topple his government? I really don't understand how he connected the spies and the US getting access to bases and formed a conspiracy theory.
