A society of accomplices

Excellent reportage from Caracas Gringo on the real mafias in Miami and the Americas:

Cuba’s Interior Ministry has a security and intelligence machine estimated at over 20,000 officials. A substantial portion of those assets are now focused on Venezuela.

Cuba’s Direccion General de Inteligencia (DGI) is one of the best intelligence agencies in the world today.

The DGI was trained during the Cold War by the KGB, and by East Germany’s foreign intelligence service (Hauptverwaltung Aufklärung, or HVA) and its national police (Stasi).

A former colonel in the old Soviet Glavnoye Razvedovatel’noye Upravlenie (GRU) – the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces General Staff – who Caracas Gringo had the pleasure of working with a few years ago, says the DGI is one of the world’s top two or three most effective and dangerous intelligence services. “The DGI routinely runs the CIA and FBI in circles,” our friend says.

When the Soviet Union imploded, the KGB went into business and organized crime on a global scale. Miami became a hub of Russia organized crime in the 1990s, as did other US cities like New York and Los Angeles, and Canadian cities like Vancouver and Toronto. From Miami, Russian mafiya engaged in drug trafficking with Colombian and Mexican cartels, did drugs-for-weapons trades with the FARC, and even tried to sell a Soviet submarine to a Colombian drug cartel.

The DGI, says our amigo the former GRU colonel, is way better today than the KGB ever was.

    Every single Cuban association in Florida, without exception, whether it is political or social, has at least one agent in it, whether the members want to acknowledge it or not. Usually, it is the one that is the most vociferous anti-Communist appearing member. The goals are (1) to report on any possible danger to the regime from the organization (2) to encourage the Cuban propensity for divisive argumenting and petty, egotistical, backstabbing. The latter goal is child's play.
