Cuba “Expert”= Castroite Agent of Influence and collaborator with 6 different Cuban spies and terrorists

julia

Our friend Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media and America's Survival helps Babalu disseminate our friend Chris Simmons' blockbuster finding's on Julia Sweig as a Castro "Agent of Influence," who collaborates with six different Cuban spies and terrorists for her book.

Our friends at Breitbart do likewise.

Say a “Mid-East expert” at the Heritage Foundation thanked 9/11 terrorists Mohamed Atta and Abdulaziz al-Omari in the acknowledgments to his book. Say the tribute read: “In (terrorist-sponsoring) Syria many people spent long hours with me, helped open doors I could not have pushed through myself, and offered friendship and warmth to myself during research trips to this (terrorist-sponsoring) nation…Mohamed Atta and Abdulaziz al-Omari championed this (book) project.”

Say this Mid-East expert then became a conservative media darling, quoted reverently and at length. Might a media scandal ensue?

Well, change the Heritage Foundation to the Council on Foreign Relations, Mid-East expert to Latin-American expert, and terrorist–sponsoring Syria to terrorist-sponsoring Cuba. Then change conservative media to MSM. Then change Islamic terrorists Mohamed Atta and Abdulaziz al-Omari to Castro-Communist terrorists Elsa Montero and Jose Gomez Abad.

Make these changes, and we’ve had the actual scenario for several years—along with a major non-scandal.

Before the shrieks of “Witch-Hunts!” and “McCarthyism!!!!" erupt I’ll calmly offer the evidence. Julia Sweig is The Council on Foreign Relations “Latin America expert,” an MSM darling on all matters Cuban, and the recent facilitator for The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg’s interviews with Castro that catapulted him back into the media spotlight. The following passage appears inside the acknowledgments of Julia Sweig’s book, Inside the Cuban Revolution:

"In Cuba many people spent long hours with me, helped open doors I could not have pushed through myself, and offered friendship and warmth to myself during research trips to the island…Elsa Montero and Jose Gomez Abad championed this project."

Entire intransigence here.

Unreal
