“Cuba no longer actively supports armed struggle in Latin America and other parts of the world.” Unsurprisingly the free-market (but only regarding trade with Stalinist Cuba) and “non-partisan” (but skews 80 per in backing Democratic policies) Lexington Institute reports the above regarding a report by our crackerjack State Department.
Comes now a report by some Cuba Experts, worthy of the name:
“the report identifies Cuba as a geopolitical and economic center of the FARC’s activities…It describes a visit that FARC representatives, Liliana López Palacio, alias Olga Lucía Marín and Orlay Jurado Palomino, alias Hermes Aguilera, paid last August to Cuba, to discuss the group’s international political initiatives….One of these FARC representatives, Olga Marin, receives a $5,000 monthly stipend through the Cuban bank account of a Venezuelan government entity.
Entire story by our friends and those GENUINE Cuba Experts at Capitol Hill Cubans.
Unreal…but the State Dept. report is perfectly in keeping with other crackerjack U.S. gov. agencies regarding Cuba, especially (alleged former Phil Peters employers) the CIA: “Don’t worry, (Republican) Ambassador, ( Earl Smith.) We’ve infiltrated Castro’s group in the Sierra. The Castros and Ernesto “Che” Guevara have no affiliations with any Communists whatsoever.” (Havana CIA station chief Jim Noel 1958.)
Close enough for government work and especially for “Cuba Experts”……
