Quote of the day

Today's quote of the day comes from Arturo Lopez-Levy (AKA Lopez-Callejas), a member of the Castro family and suspected former intelligence officer of the Castro dictatorship who now in his role as "sensible Cuban American," is a rabid defender and propagandist for the Cuban regime here in the U.S. Upon learning that USAID's Cuba program consults Babalú for news on Cuba, the would-be scholar embarks on a breathless ad hominem rant aimed at Babalú.

In all honesty, there are few things in this world as pleasurable as watching a Castro operative perder la tabla. It means we must be doing our job quite well.

"At the head of a list of go-to-sources of information on Cuba, the program recommended Babalu blog, an irrelevant website managed by rabid pro-embargo elements. Babalu blog is not focus [sic] on Cuba but on spreading baseless accusations and insults against Obama and his administration's policy towards Cuba. According to one of the less insulting posts, Obama is a “Marxist tyrant” along with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator John Kerry and any Cuban-American or American who disagrees with Babalu Blog writers' McCarthyism. The fact that USAID Cuba program recommends Babalu Blog as a reliable source of information is in itself a call for closing the program until some adult guidance is guaranteed."
