Cuba-Russia propaganda returns to its Cold War roots

Lt. Col. Chris Simmos (Ret.) in Cuba Confidential:

Cuba-Russia Propaganda Returns to Cold War Roots
https://cubaconfidential.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/cuban-agent.png

Cuban agent José Manuel Collera

Last week, the blog “Cuba Inside the World” posted a feature titled “Ex CIA double agent to RT: US AID is a front for U.S. intelligence.”  However, upon reading the story, one learns that the “ex CIA agent” is none other than admitted Cuban state security agent, José Manuel Collera. So, what we actually have is a Cuban spy making false accusations against the US and using Moscow’s propagandists to spread the story. How very ……unimaginative.

It reminds me of a Cold War joke a good friend once told me.  It goes something like this:

A race was scheduled in Moscow between a U.S.-built Ford and a Russian-built Lada. Predictably, the Ford won. The next day, “Pravda” – the official newspaper of the (then) Soviet Communist Party – proudly reported that the Lada came in second place and the Ford finished next-to-last.
