Local Spanish radio station Clasica 92.3 is reporting that the Comandos F-4 group have – if I heard correctly – stolen a bunch of weapons, including AK47s and other small arms, from a weapons cache in Cuba.
Obviously, not able to confirm as yet. Will keep you posted if this turns out to be factual.
Update: From reader Lori:
I was writing because I heard something on the radio this morning that made me a little wider eyed.
An organization called “Commando F4″ sent one of its members to the radio this morning to announce that said organization had penetrated Cuba last night or the night before managed to steal from a Cuban military unit, a number of RPGs, AK47s, Missles, amunitions and I don’t know what else, it was enough to arm a complete company without shortage. This person went on to announce that they have members that are American born of Cuban parents, and that they have members all over South America. One of the American born members came on the radio as well, and asked people in English to donate money to this cause or maybe even join. He couldn’t reveal a lot but he did say that within the Cuban military they’ve established contacts and that there are many soldiers who have pledged support to Comando F4. He went on to say that the only reason were successful was because they had inside help.
He stated that the current Cuban military is full of young men who are just sick and tired of the Cuban Gov.’s bullshit and will support any change.
Don’t know if this helps or even if you want to post something about this. I heard it on 95.7 this morning and was quite surprised, apparently nobody since the days of ” El Escambray” has been able to penetrate a Cuban camp and steal from it. I just thought you might enjoy news like that. I’m sure they’ll replay that tape throughout this morning’s show. and surely at 5:00pm when they do an hour long rebroadcast of the morning show, they’ll play it again.
Again, it’s impossible to verify the validity of the Comando F4 statements at this time. They may very well be factual, as is my hope, but they may also be about raising funds for the organization. I will post more info as it comes in.
