State Dept. project looks suspiciously like an infiltration plan

State Dept. project looks suspiciously like an infiltration plan

Emilio Paz • March 26, 2016



Are the State Department and the White House on the same wavelength? Do they coexist in the same government? The same city? The same constellation?

The question comes up because, less than a week after President Barack Obama personally assured his Cuban counterpart, Raúl Castro Ruz, that Washington has neither the capacity nor the intention to impose change on Cuba” and that the United States “will not impose our political or economic system on you,” the State Department has announced that it will give some enterprising U.S. organization $753,989 to train as many as 30 “young emerging leaders from Cuban civil society” … “to manage and grow civil society organizations that will actively support democratic principles in Cuba” — exactly the kind of governance that Havana does not want shoved down its throat.

We are indebted to journalist Tracy Eaton and his blog “Along the Malecón” for publishing the text of the announcement, released on Friday (March 25) and promptly disseminated by the official websites Granma.cu and Cubadebate.cu.

Basically, the announcement says this:

Over a three-year period, the State Department will give $753,989 (that’s more than three-quarters of a million dollars) to a U.S. nonprofit organization or U.S. educational institution to support the young Cubans “in a two- to four-month professional development program that will include specialized training” to help them develop “action plans for nongovernmental community activities in Cuba.”

1. How couldn't you support this

I'm sure the State Dept has only consulted with rhe most reliable people to make this happen for the good of Cuba
People and groups like Curve-ball, Halleyburton (not Halliburton, they swear), PNAC Part Deux (not to be confused with that other PNAC) and other totally transparent, above board organziations

2. It's what they do.

They wouldn't know what to do with themselves if they could not play the bigshot and meddle in and lecture other countries. We might have to tend to our own problems.
