Open Question for all Cuba “Experts”

aaaxszsweig2

As for “the embargo is Castro’s best friend because it provides Castro with a foil for his failures,” this meme ranks as the favorite talking point of Castro’s agents, on the payroll and off. Sadly, it’s widely believed by the superficially informed on Cuban matters.

If Castro secretly favors the embargo, then why did every one of his secret agents campaign secretly and obsessively against it while working as secret agents? Castro managed the deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Department of Defense in recent U.S. history. His spy, Ana Montes, is known as “Castro’s Queen Jewel” in the intelligence community. In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. She is serving a 25-year sentence in federal prison.

Montes worked tirelessly to influence U.S. foreign policy against the embargo. The same holds for more recently arrested, convicted and incarcerated Cuban spies Carlos and Elsa Alvarez and Kendall and Gwendolyn Myers.

It’s one thing for talking heads with their typically overworked research staffs, to remain ignorant of these vital matters. But shouldn’t a former secretary of state be familiar with matters so vital to U.S. security?

Our friends at the Miami Herald (no less!) help disseminate an important item that absolutely infuriates (because it conclusively outs) all Cuba "experts", particularly Sherritt International bagman Phil Peters and David Rockefeller mouthpiece Julia Sweig.
