The Bush administration has created five more “interagency” groups to prepare for a post-castro Cuba:
WASHINGTON – Convinced that Cuban leader Fidel Castro will never regain the power he once wielded, the Bush administration has created five interagency working groups to monitor Cuba and carry out U.S. policy.
The groups, some of which operate in war-room-like settings, were quietly set up after the July 31 announcement that the ailing Castro, 80, had ceded power temporarily to a collective leadership headed by his brother, Raul, U.S. officials say.
The groups’ composition reflects both the administration’s Cuban policy priorities as well as the belief that Castro’s status as the island’s undisputed leader is finished, regardless of the nature of his still-mysterious ailment.
Muchas cucharas en al ajiaco, if you ask me.
