On left: Other acknowledged friends–and even–“champions!” of Julia Sweig’s research and “expertise.”
Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg assures us that Cuba does not sponsor terrorism. Among his sources for his assurance is none other than, and I quote:
“I asked Julia E. Sweig, the Latin America expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, what to make of this claim (that Cuba is a State Sponsor of Terrorism)
Goldberg himself describes Ms Sweig as “a friend at the Council on Foreign Relations…a preeminent expert on Cuba and Latin America.” “We shook hands,” writes Goldberg about meeting Castro last year. “Then he greeted Julia warmly. They (Castro and Sweig) have known each other for more than twenty years.”
In the acknowledgements to her “expert” book on Cuba, Julia Sweig writes:
“In Cuba many people spent long hours with me, helped open doors I could not have pushed through myself, and offered friendship and warmth to myself during research trips to the island…Elsa Montero and Jose Gomez Abad championed this project…”
In acknowledging the “help”, “support” and “championship” of Elsa Montero and Jose Gomez Abad, (look closely at the pictures above-left) Cuba “Expert” Julia Sweig acknowledges the collaboration in her writings of Cuban terrorists whose bomb-plot (if not foiled by by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI) would have made the 9/11 death-toll look like a New Years Day fireworks accident!
Saturday Night Live couldn’t POSSIBLY MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
