Cuba “experts” smitten with Oliver Stone’s Castro infomercials

stone5stone2sweig7stone7

You will never guess who screened and hailed Stone's Castro infomercial "Looking For Fidel" promptly upon its release in 2004...Yes Julia Sweig made sure the screening was at the Council on Foreign Relations..where she could add her expert plaudits to the blatant propaganda film...plaudits from Marifeli Perez-Stable also.

The new film won plaudits from two scholars at the screening, including Marifeli Perez-Stable, a professor at Florida International University, who called it a "historical document of enormous importance."

"When I asked Fidel why he let me return to make this film, he replied: "because I trust you."(Oliver Stone.)

Here at Babalu we don't need to elaborate on what it implies to gain Fidel Castro's trust. We simply point out that Stone makes no foolish and "academic" attempt to hide his fondness for the Cuban dictator or his services in his favor. And yet people who hail these blatant and admitted propaganda services on Castro's behalf are proudly associated with such as The Cuba Study Group, where both Sweig and Perez-Stable appear prominently as--yes!--"experts."

    The "Cuba Study Group" is a Saladrigas entity. And couldn't Perez-Stable do something about that ghastly hair?

    Jaime Suchlicki mixing it with known Castro intelligence operatives Marifeli Perez-Stable and Julia Swieg! Brian Latell, where are you?

    I suppose women who look as shitty as Sweig and MPS have to find some sort of sublimation.
