Castro’s Cuba is not a threat to the U.S.?

According to the "Cuba Experts," the repressive apartheid dictatorship of the Castro family in Cuba is not a threat to the United States. Not surprisingly, these "experts" join along with the chorus of Cuban intelligence and propaganda operatives here in the U.S. who praise the wonderfulness of the Castro crime family and swear on the grave of Stalin that we have nothing to fear from Cuba's murderous totalitarian regime.

Although most of the media and academia eat this tripe up, it appears the intelligence organs of the U.S. government are not buying. Cuba, it seems, ranks right up there with the most vile and heinous enemies of the United States.

"Black-Budget": Cuba Remains Priority for U.S. Counter-Intelligence

Anyone who still believes NSA leaker Edward Snowden is some sort of crusader for civil liberties is delusional.

Snowden has just leaked to The Washington Post a classified 178-page budget summary (known as the "black budget") for the National Intelligence Program, which details the successes, failures and objectives of the U.S. intelligence community.

As such, he has alerted the enemies of the U.S. as to technologies, moles, counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism operations, and the "critical blind spots" of U.S. intelligence throughout the world.

None of this has anything to do with civil liberties.

Moreover, it's clear that China, Russia Iran and Cuba and other U.S. foes now have access to this information -- and probably much more.

(This is why tyrants like Fidel Castro praise Snowden).

One of the things revealed in the "black budget" is the following:

U.S. intelligence officials take an active interest in foes as well as friends. Pakistan is described in detail as an “intractable target,” and counterintelligence operations “are strategically focused against [the] priority targets of China, Russia, Iran, Cuba and Israel.” The latter is a U.S. ally but has a history of espionage attempts against the United States.

This should be a wake up call to those who believe that Cuba does not pose a threat to the U.S.

The fact remains Cuba's gathering and sharing of intelligence with fellow state-sponsors of terrorism and other U.S. foes is a threat and, henceforth, remains a priority target for U.S. counter-intelligence operations.

    Interesting how Israel presents a security threat to the United States as dangerous as that of Iran, China, Russia and Cuba, yet the U.S. government sends $3 billion annually to Israel, the biggest cumulative recipient of American assistance since 1948, due to the Zionist lobby on Capitol Hill, which is also the biggest lobby in Congress. The Israelis keep biting the hand that feeds them, with treasonous spies like Jonathan Pollard, who is a national hero in Israel and a street is named after him in Jerusalem. I wouldn't doubt if Israel sells the intelligence they steal from us to another one of our enemies.
