Top Dem hits Trump administration over lack of transparency in Cuba attacks

Source: The Hill


BY MAX GREENWOOD - 12/06/17 11:28 AM EST

The top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee blasted the Trump administration on Wednesday, alleging that officials have kept members of Congress in the dark about mysterious attacks in Cuba that have affected two dozen U.S. officials and their spouses.

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) said in a statement that he learned from a report by The Associated Press instead of the State Department that doctors treating victims of the attacks had found brain abnormalities.

"I was also disappointed to once again read about the latest developments in the press rather than being briefed by the State Department," he said.

"The Trump Administration has consistently failed to carry out its duty to brief Congress on these troubling events."

1. Narco Rubio no doubt had a word with the Cheeto White House to make sure nothing gets out.

How benefits from this attack? Far-right Miami Cuban exiles - some of whom have ties to extremist elements in the CIA dating from the Bay of Pigs fiasco. It stands to reason they would also have disruption equipment of this nature.

3. Absolutely, sandensea. Many of the right-wing reactionary "exiles" worked with the CIA,

in VietNam, Central America, of course Bay of Pigs, as far back as Eisenhower, and in hit squads which have traveled all over the world, executing leftists, and people they suspected of supporting the Cuban revolution, even making excursions into Cuba, heavily armed, murdering specific Cubans, or sending in "mules," hired by Cuban "exile" terrorists. like Luis Posada Carriles, from impoverished Central American countries, to travel to Cuba and plant bombs in hotels, restaurants, discos. As was admitted in the murder trial by Eduardo Arocena, from the terrorist Organization "Omega 7" in New Jersey, after he and another exile executed the Cuban UN ambassador at a red light, in NYC, by running out and shooting him in the neck and back of the head, Felix Garcia Rodriguez, Arocena had also hand carried into Cuba, for the CIA, biological warfare items, he called them "germs", which killed over a hundred adults, and 44 children.

Their connections to the CIA go back a very long way, and I'm so glad you mentioned it. Thank you.

2. The attacks could be perpetrated by Russia

or even old National Batista supporters longing for the good old days..

Truth is I believe that the current Cuban Govt... has nothing to do with these attacks.

But I know one thing.. Our President hates the concept of a beneficial relationship with Cuba..

I ain't saying the U.S. is responsible for these attacks....but I have questions????
