Internet Foils Disinformation Operation Regarding Funeral For Mother of Alan Gross

cubaconfidential
By Chris Simmons
Cuba’s once world-class propaganda operations suffered another self-inflicted blow late yesterday, this time by expelled Spy Josefina Vidal, who continues to serve undercover as director of the US Division within Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Vidal issued a press release claiming Havana is unable to award Gross a humanitarian visa for the funeral because “…neither the Cuban penitentiary system nor the US penitentiary system provide the possibility for inmates to travel abroad, no matter the reason…”
Before crafting this poorly conceived propaganda piece, Mrs. Vidal and her DI brethren should have searched the internet, where they would have found this Associated Press story on convicted Wasp Network spy Rene Gonzalez from April 12, 2013:  Judge approves Cuban spy visit home.
Is it really possible that the DI can’t even pull off a simple disinformation mission anymore without tripping over itself? Unbelievable! Ironically, readers will also note that the AP story is proudly displayed on the website by the National Committee to Free the Five.

Colaboracionistas y agentes del regimen castrista se reunen en Miami

que colaboracionistas del regimen dirigidos por agentes de la inteligencia castristas radicados oportunamente en los eeuu, realicen un evento propagandistico siguiendo la agenda que trazan en la habana y lo enmascaren como una conferencia de organizaciones no gubernamentales partidarios de la unilateral normalizacion de las relaciones cuba-eeuu, es simplemente aprovechar la libertad de expresion y de asociacion negada y reprimida brutalmente en cuba, para cabildear y generar y/o modificar estados de opinion sobre el asunto, puede ser considerado "valido" en el sentido democratico. lo que resulta incongruente es que ninguna de las organizaciones anticastristas del exilio y sus portavoces, hayan hecho acto de presencia en la actividad o al menos les tiraran una trompetilla desde la acera de enfrente. todo demasiado politicamente correcto para ser tenido como meritorio.
o al menos que le exijan a la plaza de la revolucion a traves de  los colaboracionistas y agentes de influencia, que un evento similar se realice en la habana, para que los partidarios de mantener las restricciones viertan sus argumentos referidos a las condiciones que debiera cumplir el regimen en la practica. como ello no seria aceptado pues este tipo de convite solo esta reservado para los 55 Hermanos   y los "respetuosos" contemporaneos, las reclamaciones del evento miamense serian descartadas por la ley del 3ro excluido. 
mas abajo el reconocido caza espias  Chris Simmons, se refiere a la composicion de los cabecillas del evento y al aseptico tratamiento que merecio en los medios miamenses.
----------------
Yesterday’s Herald featured the innocent sounding article, Supporters of Stronger US Relations With Cuba Stage Rare Gathering in Miami. The author, longtime Cuba-watcher Juan Tamayo, wrote “A rare conference of supporters of normalizing U.S.-Cuba relations heard calls Saturday for the Obama administration to allow more travel to the island and remove it from a list of supporters of terrorism.”
The career journalist noted that over 100 people attended the one-day event that offered panelists such as “Arturo Lopez-Levy, a Cuban foreign policy expert at the University of Denver, and Antonio Zamora, a Miami lawyer and member of the Brigade 2506 that invaded Cuba in 1961. He now favors normalizing bilateral relations.”
Conference promoter Hugo Cancio, however, lamented that Washington denied a visa to “invited panelist, retired Havana diplomat Jesus Arboleya, and denied permission to attend the conference to two Cuban diplomats in Washington - First Secretary Juan Lamigueiro and General Counsel Llanio Gonzalez.” Tamayo also spoke with Collin Laverty, a U.S. citizen who works with U.S. visitors to the island, who told him about 90 percent of Americans visiting Cuba are funneled through the Cuban government’s Havanatour agency. (Note: The actual name is Havanatur).

Alarmingly, you could fill volumes with all the intelligence service connections the Herald conveniently omitted. A few of these key facts would include:

Arturo Lopez-Levy - in his own book – admitted to having been a spy with Cuba’s Ministry of the Interior (MININT). Likewise, the Herald failed to note the seven-year PhD candidate’s close family ties to Raul Castro’s son-in-law, MININT Col. Luis Alberto Rodriguez Lopez-Callejas.
• The banned panelist, Colonel Jesus Arboleya Cervera was identified by intelligence service defector Jesus Perez Mendez in 1983. Years later, Arboleya’s intelligence service was further corroborated by convicted spy Carlos Alvarez.
Arboleya served as a Second Secretary at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations in New York City before transferring to the Washington-based Cuban Interests Section. During his US tour, Arboleya was the architect of the 1970’s US-Cuba normalization drive, which almost succeeded in 1977 following the formation of a group of prominent Cuban-Americans who called themselves the Committee of 75. Although headed by respectable Cuban-Americans, including two clerics and several businessmen, the Committee was inspired by the DGI, (then) Cuba’s primary foreign intelligence service. According to Senate testimony of March 12, 1982, at the time, Arboleya may have been the longest serving DGI officer in the United States.
• The Havanatur office in Miami surveilled Cuban-Americans seeking to visit the island and recruited agents from among them, according to 1981 Congressional testimony. Subsequently, the US Treasury Department identified Havanatur and CIMEX (among others) as Cuban front companies. In the intelligence arena, a “Front Company” is any entity created, controlled, or heavily influenced by a spy service to fulfill espionage missions without its actions being attributed to the host intelligence service.
In March 2004, the US Treasury identified Havanatur as a CIMEX subsidiary. Public records reveal CIMEX’s involvement in everything from weapons purchases for leftist guerillas in the 1980s to more genteel import/export endeavors.
Havanatur, as well as the remainder of Cuba’s tourism sector, is run as a joint venture by the Ministry of the Interior (MININT) and the Ministry of the Armed Forces (MINFAR). For almost 20 years, credible defectors and émigrés have reported that part of the earnings from tourism are channeled back into the operating budgets of these two agencies. As a result, US tourists are actively funding Cuban repression and espionage.
• The entry point for the much heralded “people-to-people” tours is the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP). DGI officer Jesus Raul Perez Mendez was the ICAP director before his defection. So well known is ICAP’s collaboration that in 1983, the New York Times cited a State Department spokesman who said ICAP was suspected of having an intelligence collection mission in support of the DGI.
More recently, former DI officer Juan Manuel Reyes-Alonso reportedly that ICAP is not a DI entity per se, but that it was overwhelmingly influenced by the intelligence service. He further claimed ICAP was penetrated by a small cadre of bona fide DI officers, aided by a large staff of agents (i.e., collaborators). As a result, roughly 90% of ICAP was thought to be DI-affiliated.
So the question of the day remains: why is the Miami Herald so adamant about ignoring, suppressing, minimizing or discrediting news on Havana’s spy services?

With Second Cuban Spy Release, Is Alan Gross Freedom in Sight?

Fernando Gonzalez Is One of 'Cuban Five'
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
A second Cuban spy of five whose release from prison is seen as critical to the freedom of Alan Gross will likely soon be in Cuba.
Fernando Gonzalez, one of the “Cuban Five” convicted of spying offenses in 2001, will be transferred to immigration lockup at the end of February to await deportation to Cuba, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday. Gonzalez was sentenced to 19 years, but appeals and good behavior reduced his sentence to 15 years.
Gross, 64, a subcontractor for the State Department on a mission to hook up Cuba’s small Jewish community to the Internet, was arrested in December 2009 as he was leaving Cuba. The Maryland resident is serving a 15-year sentence for “crimes against the state.”
Cuban authorities have made clear that his release could come in an exchange for the Cuban Five, and Gross’ family has suggested that the U.S. government should use this leverage in obtaining his freedom.
One of the Cuban Five, Rene Gonzalez, was released and is living in Cuba.
The other three are serving longer sentences, the Herald said. One is in for life because of his involvement in the Cuban Air Force’s fatal downing of four planes dropping pamphlets on the island. Four Americans were killed in the attack.

Más de 200 Espías Cubanos en EE.UU., según Oficial de la Contrainteligencia

El gobierno cubano, que en enero de 2014 cumplió 55 años en el poder, tendría poco más de 200 espías en Estados Unidos, cifra ligeramente más baja de la que tenía antes de que se desmantelara la llamada Red Avispa, de agentes cubanos en Miami, Florida, en 1998.
No es una especulación febril del anticastrismo radical, es una afirmación del teniente coronel Chris Simmons, oficial de la contrainteligencia militar de Estados Unidos y autor del libro The Spy's Wife: Beyond Betrayal (La esposa del espía: más allá de la traición), que escribió con Ana Margartia Martínez, ex esposa del espía Juan Pablo Roque, de la Red Avispa. Roque escapó a Cuba horas antes de que jets militares cubanos derribaran a dos avionetas civiles y desarmadas de la organización humanitaria cubanoestadounidense Hermanos al Rescate, con saldo de cuatro muertos. Esto ocurrió el 24 de febrero de 1996 con apoyo de Roque y la Red Avispa.
La afirmación de Simmons representó en su momento la primera vez que un funcionario estadounidense hablaba sobre el número de espías cubanos en territorio norteamericano, en los últimos años. Cuatro espías cubanos cumplen penas de cárcel en Estados Unidos, tras comprobarse que formaban parte de la Red Avispa. Un quinto fue liberado. Esta red espiaba a organizaciones cubanas en el sur de Florida, y se mencionó durante el juicio a que fueron sometidos que también trataron de espiar las instalaciones del Comando Sur del Ejército de Estados Unidos.
Según Simmons, los espías cubanos actúan en células compartimentadas y separadas unas de otras, y su misión parece ser la misma de años anteriores: vigilar las actividades de las organizaciones cubanas en Estados Unidos y las instalaciones militares norteamericanas.
El alto oficial estadounidense comenzó a rastrear espías en todo el mundo en 1986, cuando inició su carrera en la contrainteligencia militar. En 1990 hizo varias investigaciones de este tipo para la Agencia de Inteligencia de Defensa (DIA) del Pentágono. Luego del derribo de las avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate, fue nombrado jefe de análisis de la contrainteligencia para América Latina, con Cuba como foco principal.
Antes de la crisis económica de los 90 y la desintegración de la Unión Soviética, según Simmons, la cantidad de espías cubanos en Estados Unidos rondaba los 300.
Este oficial fue parte del equipo que capturó a la espía Ana Belén Montes, quien desde su cargo de analista de inteligencia del Pentágono pasaba información secreta al gobierno de Cuba. Montes fue arrestada en 2001.
En este mismo instante, varios espías al servicio de Cuba, entre ellos varios norteamericanos, guardan prisión. Están tras las rejas por ese delito, la misma Montes, condenada a 25 años de cárcel, y los esposos Walter Kendal Myers, de 72 años, y Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers, de 71, que trabajaron para la inteligencia militar cubana durante 30 años. Previamente, también estuvieron en prisión por espionaje, los esposos Carlos Alvarez y Elsa Prieto, ahora en libertad.
Por su parte, el Dr. Manuel Cereijo, profesor de la Universidad de Miami y autor de numerosos artículos sobre Cuba, asegura que no fueron cinco espías los de la Red Avista sino 27. De ese grupo, cinco se declararon culpables y cumplieron prisión, y otros cuatro también se declararon culpables en mayo de 1999 y se encuentran en un plan especial de cambio de identidad. Otros escaparon a Cuba.

Más Allá de Estados Unidos
La red de espionaje cubana ha ido más allá de Estados Unidos. A finales de los 80 desertaron varios agentes de Castro en distintos puntos del planeta. El más famoso de ellos fue el mayor Florentino Azpillaga Lombard, jefe de la inteligencia cubana en la entonces Checoslovaquia comunista. Azpillaga Lombard desertó en Austria en junio de 1987 y de allí pasó a Estados Unidos, donde reveló los nombres de 350 agentes cubanos que presuntamente se habían infiltrado en ciertos niveles de gobiernos extranjeros. Este hombre obligó a Castro a reestructurar todo el sistema de espionaje cubano en Europa. Reveló también que la Dirección General de Inteligencia de Cuba tenía entonces 2.086 agentes, y denunció que Fidel Castro había depositado varios millones de dólares en bancos suizos, y se beneficiaba de una impresionante flota de yates y mansiones a todo lujo en las 14 provincias cubanas. Acusó también a la cúpula gobernante de la isla de corrupta y de haber arruinado a Cuba.
A principios de octubre de 2000, otro agente cubano, Pedro Riera Escalante, fue arrestado en México mientras trataba de desertar, y finalmente resultó deportado a Cuba. Riera Escalante confesó a la prensa mexicana haber trabajado como espía desde que llegó al país azteca en calidad de cónsul en 1986. Admitió haber reclutado a un número récord de informantes mexicanos, entre funcionarios, empresarios, agentes de la inteligencia mexicana y periodistas. Este hombre comenzó sus actividades como agente en 1969, cuando era apenas un adolescente, y entre otras misiones suyas estuvo la de convencer al presidente de Mozambique, Samora Machel, en 1977, de expulsar al personal de la CIA de ese país africano. También trabajó en la redacción de un manual para capacitar a sus colegas cubanos en las técnicas de infiltrar a la CIA.
El desmantelamiento de la Red Avispa representó el más duro golpe a las actividades de inteligencia del régimen castrista en territorio estadounidense. Posteriomente, la captura de Montes fue otro revés importante. Pero ninguno de ellos se asemeja al protagonizado en 1987 por Azpillaga.

New York Daily News Uses “Former” Cuban Spies as Unattributed Sources in “Handshake” Coverage

Jesus Arboleya Cervera
The recent article by Albor Ruiz “Obama-Castro Handshake More Than Just a Gesture” used former Cuban Intelligence Officers Jesús Arboleya and Arturo López-Levy as central sources in the feature. However, Ruiz failed to identify either man as a former spy, instead referencing Arboleya as a “Cuban writer and political analyst” and López-Levy as a “Cuba expert and Political Science professor at the University of Denver.”

Editor’s Note: Colonel Jesus Arboleya Cervera was identified by intelligence service defector Jesus Perez Mendez in 1983. Years later, Arboleya’s intelligence service was further corroborated by convicted spy Carlos Alvarez.
Arturo López-Levy
Arboleya served as a Second Secretary at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations in New York City before transferring to the Washington-based Cuban Interests Section. During his US tour, Arboleya was the architect of the 1970’s US-Cuba normalization drive, which almost succeeded in 1977 following the formation of a group of prominent Cuban-Americans who called themselves the Committee of 75. Although headed by respectable Cuban-Americans, including two clerics Arboleya may have been the longest serving DGI officer in the United States.
and several businessmen, the Committee was inspired by the DGI, (then) Cuba’s primary foreign intelligence service. According to Senate testimony of March 12, 1982, at the time,
Arturo Lopez-Levy is a self-professed “former” Intelligence Officer in Havana’s dreaded Ministry of the Interior (MININT). He is also a relative of MININT Col. Luis Alberto Rodriguez Lopez-Callejas, Raul Castro’s son-in-law and head of GAESA, the regime’s business monopoly.

Will Diplomatic Relations With Cuba Be Obama’s Legacy?

Obama Thaws U.S.-Cuba Relations
Administration has quietly employed new diplomacy to try to end Cold War standoff
DeWayne Wickham, USA TODAY
While, understandably, a lot of news media attention in recent days has focused on the U.S.-led talks to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, the Obama administration appears to be laying the groundwork for another diplomatic breakthrough.
In little noticed speeches given last month, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry cryptically acknowledged the need for a new approach to Cuba, a country the U.S. has -- literally and figuratively -- waged war with for over a half-century.
Rejecting the "notion that the same policies that we put in place in 1961" would still be effective "in the age of the Internet and Google and world travel," Obama told a Miami audience that the U.S. has to be "creative" and "thoughtful" in its efforts to bring change to Cuba. Ten days later, in an address to the Organization of American States, Kerry said of U.S. relations with Cuba: "We have to continue to update our policies."
And it appears the Obama administration has done just that. It is quietly employing a "new think" diplomacy in an effort to end this nation's Cold War standoff with Cuba.
In January, Cuba ended a decades-old requirement that its citizens needed to obtain a government-issued exit permit before they could travel abroad. In July, the Obama administration increased from six months to five years the duration of visas granted to Cuban visitors to the U.S. These new visas allow Cubans to travel back and forth between the two countries, which haven't had formal diplomatic ties since 1961.
Also this year, talks between the U.S. and Cuba to restore normal mail service have resumed. The talks were halted in 2009 after Cuba arrested Alan Gross, a State Department contractor who was caught trying to set up an underground communications network. In August, Cuba allowed U.S. doctors to visit Gross, whose health is said to be failing, for the first time. That concession came just a few months after a U.S. judge agreed to let a convicted Cuban spy, Rene Gonzalez, serve the remaining three years of his probation in Cuba.

Néstor García Iturbe: A Castroit Brian Latell

mexico.cnn.com
By Miguel Fernandez
Retired Colonel Néstor García Iturbe has launched a theory on the Kennedy assassination in the leftwing blogosphere. The hard core argument is that the assasination was a plot by the CIA and the Pentagon with some carefully selected members of the anti-Castro groups. However, García Iturbe moves away from the Castroit official line by asserting that Lee Harvey Oswald was a case of “false flag” recruitment. Oswald would have been recruited “for Cuba” by an FBI agent, who had infiltrated the Fair Play for Cuba Committee (FPCC). Oswald was actually used as decoy in the assassination, but he aimed his rifle on the belief he was working for Castro. Thus, ex-DGI spymaster García Iturbe concurs with the view of ex-CIA desk analyst Brian Latell, who wrote in Castro´s Secrets (2013) that intelligence officers were winding Oswald up at the Cuban Consulate in México City and turned him into "a fully primed soldier of Fidel" (page 227).
False Flag
García Iturbe seems to be unaware of the classic article “Leftist Lee at Work” (The Third Decade, Vol. 2, No. 5, July 1986, pp. 1-6), where Philp H. Malenson demonstrated that Oswald was working against FPCC, id est, against the very flag under which he had been recruited. For instance, Oswald engaged in a radio debate (“Conversation Carte Blanche,” WDSU, New Orleans, August 21, 1963) versus Cuban exile Carlos Bringuier and American anticommunist militant Ed Butler on the U.S. policy toward Cuba. They revealed Oswald's defection to the Soviet Union in 1959, but Oswald replied that FPCC had absolutely nothing to do either with the URSS or the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA). This message was repeatedly delivered by Oswald, who also exaggerated his one-man FPCC chapter in New Orleans. On August 28, Oswald wrote to the CPUSA asking for advice “upon a problem of personal tactics:” whether or not to go underground. He established on paper the very linkage he had denied on the air: “Frankly, I have used my position [in the FPCC] to foster communist ideals.” He never informed the FPCC he had placed such a risky paper-trial linkage (Commission Exhibit 1145) tying the pro Castro group to the CPSUA and, through his background as re-defector, to Moscow.
Crass Ignorance
García Iturbe thinks the job Oswald got at the Texas Book School Book Depository (TSBD), facing Dealey Plaza in Dallas, “deserves an analysis.” From his very first question emerges he does not know what he is talking about: “¿Who provided this job to Oswald?” On August 25, 2013, C-SPAN3 broadcasted an interview with Buell Wesley Frazier, the co-worker who gave Oswald the last lift to the TBSD. Frazier reiterated some well-known data available in the Mary Ferrell Chronologies, apparently an alien bibliography for García Iturbe.
Since September 23, 1963, Oswald´s wife had moved with her friend Ruth Paine to Irving, around 21 kilometers of Dallas, for the birth of her second baby. On October 14, Marina and Ruth went to a neighbor´s house (Mrs. Roberts) for coffee. Another neighbor, Linnie Randle, was there. When Paine mentioned that Oswald was looking for work, Randle said there might be a job opening at TBSD, because her brother Frazier had been hired a month ago. Pain called the TBSD and talked with Superintendent Roy Truly, who told her to have Oswald make an application. Paine immediately called Oswald. The next day he went to the TBSD and got a job for $10 daily, from 8 AM a 4:45 PM, with 12 to 12:45 PM for lunch.
García Iturbe confirms his lack of knowledge with this tirade: "What a coincidence that the TBSD was located precisely at a street on the route of the presidential motorcade! Who knew it would go along this street by that time? Usually this is a ‘Top Secret’ in order to protect the President; however, Oswald had foreknowledge and could get his rifle inside the bulding." García Iturbe has not got even a clue about the fact that all the people in Dallas must know in advance the route of the motorcade for greeting the President on the streets. Both The Dallas Morning News and The Dallas Times Herald described it in detail on November 19, 1963. The latter even ran a large map of the motorcade route in the evening edition of November 21.
Coda
As Dr. Latell, García Iturbe tries to connect the dots for making theories, but the crux of the matter is finding facts instead of bringing more factoids, like Oswald being recruited under a “false flag” by the FBI or having not a single unforeseen incident during the days prior to the assassination.

Washington Thanks Havana For Helping Prompt Cuban-Supported Terrorist Group To Free American


www.eturbonews.com
Cuba and Norway: Rebels Free American

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Colombia's FARC rebels on Sunday freed an American they were holding since June, the governments of Cuba and Norway said.

The statement by the Cuban and Norwegian embassies in Bogota said that rebels have turned over 26-year-old Kevin Scott Sutay to a commission made up of representatives from their countries and the International Committee of the Red Cross in the nation's south. Sutay was later delivered to U.S. government representatives at the airport in the Colombian capital.

Sutay had been in the country as a tourist when he was taken hostage on June 20 by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry welcomed Sutay's release, and said the United States was "profoundly grateful" to the Colombian government for its efforts to secure his freedom.

Kerry also individually thanked Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the governments of Norway and Cuba, as well as the Rev. Jesse Jackson, for pushing for Sutay's release.

Editor’s Note: Former CIA officer Brian Latell has stated that Cuban Intelligence has strongly supported the FARC since the 1960s, but the “availability of massive amounts of Venezuelan money” during Hugo Chavez’s presidency triggered considerable growth in the depth and bredth of Havana’s support. His assessment is echoed by Lieutenant General Ion Mihai Pacepa -- the highest ranking intelligence officer to ever defect from Communist-controlled Romania – claimed that by the mid-1970s, both the Cuban and Romanian foreign intelligence services worked jointly with the FARC.

Informante del FBI tiene una vida privilegiada en Cuba

baracuteycubano.blogspot.com
Juan O. Tamayo el Nuevo Herald
Hace dos años, el informante del FBI en Miami Gilberto Abascal [foto] fue el testigo clave de la fiscalía en el juicio del exiliado militante cubano Luis Posada Carriles. En el 2006, él fue el principal informante en el juicio por armas de Santiago Alvarez, partidario de Posada, quien fue hallado culpable.
En la actualidad, Abascal está de regreso en Cuba, donde vive y se construye una casa con una piscina — un raro privilegio en la isla de régimen comunista —, conduciendo costosos carros de alquiler y ofreciendo una recompensa equivalente a dos años del salario promedio a cambio de información sobre quienes robaron en su casa, según varios de sus vecinos.
“El volvió de Miami y está viviendo en la finca de su familia” en el poblado de La Julia, a unas 15 millas al sur de La Habana, dijo un activista por la democracia que vive en el pueblo vecino de Surgidero de Batabanó y conoce personalmente a Abascal.
El regreso de Abascal a Cuba reforzó alegaciones que se han hecho por mucho tiempo, y que fueron desestimadas por la fiscalía federal, de que él servía de informante tanto a la inteligencia cubana como al FBI contra Posada, Alvarez y otros exiliados en Miami.
“Esto valida por inferencia la conclusión de que este era un individuo que tenía una relación de colaboración con la Seguridad del Estado cubana… y esto arroja una sombra de dudas sobre el FBI por haber lidiado con este hombre”, dijo Arturo V. Hernández, abogado defensor de Posada.
Abascal regresó a Cuba de Miami hace más de un año, y se ha mantenido atareado mejorando y ampliando la finca de su familia, dijeron sus vecinos en Batabanó y La Julia, quienes pidieron conservar el anonimato por temor a represalias por parte de agentes de la Seguridad del Estado.
Conocido por el sobrenombre de “El Cano”, este hombre rechoncho de 48 años compró un tractor para la finca de su familia, está construyéndose una casa con piscina en La Julia, y alquila a menudo carros de último modelo en una agencia gubernamental en Batabanó cuyos precios empiezan en $500 a la semana, dijeron los vecinos.
Un cartel colocado frente a su casa de La Julia el fin de semana pasado ofreció una recompensa de 10,000 pesos — alrededor de $400, en una isla donde el sueldo oficial promedio mensual es de 470 pesos — a cambio de información sobre quien entró a robar en su casa. Fotos tomadas por uno de los vecinos mostraron lo que se describió como una cámara de seguridad sobre la puerta del frente.
Un vecino dijo que él era un “conocido agente de Seguridad”, y otro dijo que la finca de su familia está “protegida” por agentes de la Seguridad vestidos de civil que vigilan discretamente a los transeúntes.
Abascal ha dicho a conocidos suyos en Batabanó y La Julia que él no puede regresar a Miami, pero no dio razones, y viaja con frecuencia a México y otros países a comprar ropa que luego vende en la isla, dijeron los vecinos por teléfono a El Nuevo Herald.
No se pudo contactarlo en La Julia para que hiciera declaraciones para esta historia, pero él negó persistentemente ser un agente de inteligencia de Cuba durante los juicios de Posada y Álvarez. “Yo nunca he tenido nada que ver con el gobierno cubano en toda mi vida”, declaró en el 2006.

BREAKING NEWS: Cuba Spied on Terry McAuliffe « Cuba Confidential

With Bill & Hillary/
latimesblogs.latimes.com
Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Likely Received Special Attention
By Chris Simmons
The Directorate of Intelligence, Cuba’s primary foreign intelligence service, spied on Terry McAuliffe before and during a four-day trade mission to Havana. The experienced politico undertook the trip in April 2010 as a personal quest to increase Cuban purchases of Virginia agricultural products.
Given the Directorate’s intimate understanding of the American political arena, it undoubtedly awarded McAuliffe a level of attention fair beyond normal business travelers since his return to politics was virtually assured. At the time of the Cuba visit, McAuliffe had recently failed in his 2009 gubernatorial bid. His earlier political efforts included running Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, service as DNC Chair (2001-2005) and co-chairing Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign.
Cuban targeting was likely triggered by McAuliffe’s trip preparation. More specifically, his meetings with Jorge Bolaños, the “retired” spy who headed the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, DC from 2008-2012. The CIA identified Bolaños as a suspected intelligence officer in the early 1970s. More recently, former Directorate of Intelligence (DI) Lieutenant Juan Manuel Reyes Alonso confirmed Bolaños’ intelligence service. He also opined that Bolaños’ multiple ambassadorial tours suggest that at some point he began working his cover identity more than his intelligence mission.
However, Reyes Alonso also noted that Bolaños maintained close ties with staff members of two of Cuba’s five spy services as well as the Superior Institute of Intelligence (ISI), where the regime’s civilian intelligence officers are trained. The de facto ambassador was also a close friend of (then) ISI Director, Nestor Garcia Iturbe, one of the regime’s top experts in targeting Americans. Normally, Cuban diplomats distance themselves from intelligence services because such ties can cripple their careers when counterintelligence services suspect them of being intelligence collaborators or undercover officers.
Upon arrival in Cuba, McAuliffe met with the leadership of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade’s Empresa Comercializadora de Alimentos. Known as “ALIMPORT,” this government agency coordinates all overseas purchases and its director authorizes the import of products to Cuba. Significantly, the DI provides the ALIMPORT head and his staff with detailed biographical reporting on every member of a trade delegation, with emphasis on their personal strengths and weaknesses.
This sharing of biographic data with ALIMPORT “is a normal procedure of the Cuban Intelligence” according to Juan Antonio Rodriguez Menier, a former DI Major. Rodriguez Menier said the spy agency’s information is focused on any detail that can provide Havana an edge during negotiations with a foreign delegation.
His assessment is echoed by Reyes Alonso, who declared “Cuban Intelligence always does that with high government officials that will meet with foreigners, especially those coming from the US.” Having previously worked in the spy service’s “Science & Technology” department, Reyes Alonso told the Miami Herald earlier this year that the DI also recruited collaborators within ALIMPORT to “identify possible targets to do industrial and corporate espionage.”
McAuliffe and his entourage subsequently remained under Cuban Intelligence control when they stayed at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. Featuring a staff rife with DI informants, the Hotel Nacional is known to be wired for video and audio surveillance of foreign guests.
Cuban Intelligence tradecraft also calls for recruitment efforts targeted against the close associates of important visitors. In this “one-off” technique, the DI or the Directorate of Counterintelligence seek individuals who – according to Reyes Alonso – “are usually more vulnerable, less visible and easier to follow up with at later times.” When successful, this approach provides indirect access to the targeted principal and opens the door for the new spy to follow their American mentor to higher positions in the future.
Agricultural Leaders Also Targeted
The Commonwealth’s food sales to Cuba have skyrocketed from $838,000 in 2003 to a record-setting $66 million in 2012. Virginia is now the second largest US exporter of agricultural products to the Caribbean island. As such, Cuba has also spied on Agriculture Secretary Todd Haymore and key members of the Farm Bureau, the USA Rice Federation, Purdue AgriBusiness, Smithfield Foods and Crown Orchards. Haymore – who, like McAuliffe, maintained a close working relationship with retired spy Jorge Bolaños — led his sixth annual trade mission to Cuba last November.
Editor’s Note: The author is internationally renowned as one of America’s foremost experts on Cuba’s intelligence services.

Denounced by Havana! I Must Be Doing Something Right

James Bruno
By James Bruno in DIPLO DENIZEN
Whether as a diplomat or as a writer, I don't feel fully successful in my work unless denounced by oppressive regimes and their propaganda organs. Well, it's happened again. Yesterday, "El Heraldo Cubano," denounced me as a "yankee ex-intelligence officer" who helped "carry out subversive actions against the Cuban government." The Miami Herald describes El Heraldo Cubano as "an official Cuban blog." A Cuban intellectual and former political prisoner now residing in the United States says that the blog is an arm of Cuban intelligence.
El Heraldo Cubano's screed is in reaction to my latest political thriller, HAVANA QUEEN, which apparently has come to the attention of both Cuban intellectuals and their government. Emails concerning my book from the former have been forwarded to me. I have no indications yet that copies, digital or print, of HAVANA QUEEN are circulating inside Cuba. My novel poses a scenario for the collapse of the Castro regime. I draw on my service in Cuba as well as copious research.
Anyway, here are highlights of the denunciation, translated into English:
"With all that information, Bruno decided to fictionalize his experiences in a kind of thiller, under the suggestive title of Havana Queen, where he distorts the internal situation and invents others, with views that were approved by the Department of State in their prior security review done as a security measure to prevent information leaks that reveal the espionage work of the American federal intelligence agencies and, in particular, the Defense Intelligence Agency.
"Unintentionally, James Bruno confirmed in Havana Queen that which Cuba has denounced repeatedly, that the United States uses its diplomatic mission in Havana as a headquarters for human and technological spying, while it selects, trains and finances counterrevolutionary elements to carry out subversive acts against the Cuban government.
"If someday this outdated policy is replaced by one that recognizes the right of Cubans to choose the political and social system they want to, allowing Americans to freely visit the island, and in the United States they detect Bruno’s absence, remember his prophecy: "If I go missing, look for me... in Cuba."
Well, what can I say? First, thanks to El Heraldo Cubano for adding to my authorial notoriety. We writers crave attention and, the more controversial, the better. History has shown that official condemnations have done wonders for authors' book sales. Boris Pasternak comes to mind. While by no means in his league, I can use all the denunciations I can get. Tell you what, Heraldo Cubano: should you need more fodder for your anti-Bruno propagandizing, just shoot me an email. I'll be glad to send you more dirt on myself.
But... I can't consider myself to be a true thriller writer success and victim of oppression unless I hit the Big Leagues. I really, really would love to be denounced by the biggest kahouna in the vast Castro propaganda machine: the official organ of the Cuban communist party, Granma! Hey, Heraldo Cubano -- how about putting in a bad word for me??

Group Founded by “Former” Cuban Spy Denounces US-Cuba Policy

CAFE Denounces Mario Diaz-Balart’s Attempts to Reverse Advancements in U.S.-Cuba Policy
The Executive Committee of CAFE, Cuban Americans for Engagement, would like to express our severe dismay over the recent language introduced by representative Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to the House Financial Services Appropriations Bill for the fiscal year 2014 that would reverse important advancements in U.S.-Cuba relations.
The language contained in sections 124 and 125 of the bill, which was passed by the full committee on Wednesday, would adversely affect two major policy changes of the Obama administration that have brought about improvements in the relations between the citizens of both nations over the past four years.
Section 124 would effectively dismantle the “people-to-people” licensing program, allowing American citizens to travel to Cuba for educational purposes, by defunding the program. These licenses have allowed U.S. citizens to legally visit Cuba and experience the island first-hand, ending their reliance on the skewed portrayals of Cuban reality by either the U.S. government or the corporate-controlled media.
These visits have also allowed Cuban citizens to interact with average U.S. citizens and to discover that most people in the U.S. desire normal relations with their Cuban neighbors. These educational exchanges have served to reinforce the similarities of both peoples and to express our shared interests.
The provisions in section 125 are particularly disturbing because they negatively affect thousands of Diaz-Balart’s own constituents and their families in Cuba by requiring OFAC to monitor and report details on Cuban American travel to Cuba and on all remittances carried to Cuba, whether by Cuban Americans or others.
These remittances that have been taken to Cuba in the past years have helped to bolster the nascent mixed economy and allow Cubans on the island to start and maintain small businesses. Without these much needed investments Cubans wouldn’t be able to participate in this new paradigm. The regulations imposed by this legislation would require a costly and intrusive monitoring system and would ultimately lead to diminished monetary support for the limited, yet increasing, free enterprise that is now possible in Cuba and less humanitarian and other donations to Cuba’s religious NGOs.
It is extremely hypocritical and downright un-American of Diaz-Balart and the Republican controlled Appropriations committee to discourage Cuban Americans from taking advantage of the economic reforms taking place in Cuba. These are the same public figures that decry the communist, authoritarian government’s control over the economy. These remittances have been the lifeblood of recent reforms in Cuba and Diaz-Balart’s shortsighted and malicious attempt to curtail such funds is an affront to the American way of life.
CAFE will join others in fighting to keep this hateful language from ever making it to the president’s desk and we hope that Diaz-Balart’s mean-spirited tactics will be met with negative results at the polls on Election Day in November of 2014. Diaz-Balart’s attempt to control the American citizenry’s right to travel and sabotage his own constituent’s efforts to contribute to the welfare of their extended communities in Cuba is a disgusting act of political posturing that shouldn’t be accepted by any sector of the American government or society.
CAFE advocates an end to the unconstitutional restrictions on travel to Cuba imposed by the U.S. Congress and exhorts the U.S. State Department to at least, in the mean time, establish a single general license to cover all currently permissible categories of travel to Cuba. We also support the unlimited investment by Cuban Americans in Cuba and the end to the embargo that prohibits individuals and companies subject to U.S. jurisdiction from most trade and economic transactions with the island.
Editor’s Note: “Former” self-professed Cuban Intelligence Officer Arturo Lopez-Levy is a founding member of CAFÉ. More on this group can be found in the May 10, 2012 post: CAFE: Changing the Aroma of Cuban-American Politics, CAFE: Changing the Aroma of Cuban-American Politics

Caracas Nest of Spies: From WikiLeaks to the Snowden Affair

By Nikolas Kozloff, Huffington Post
As the unlikely Snowden saga continues to unfold, further disclosures are eroding the already tense relationship between Washington and Caracas. According to Brazilian newspaper O Globo, the National Security Agency or NSA conducted high level espionage on Venezuela, including the cataloguing of telephone calls and access to the internet, through a program called PRISM. Citing documents leaked by Snowden, O Globo reports that the NSA collected information on everything from Venezuelan military purchases to the South American nation's oil industry.
Though Caracas officials are certainly aware that the U.S. spies on Venezuela, Snowden's specific revelations relating to NSA may have far-reaching consequences. Already, Nicolás Maduro has said he is willing to offer diplomatic asylum to Snowden, and the Venezuelan president adds that the United States has "created an evil system, half Orwellian, that intends to control the communications of the world." Snowden, Maduro adds, is a hero who has unveiled the nefarious machinations of American political elites.
It's unclear whether Snowden can take advantage of Maduro's offer, and traveling to South America could prove logistically difficult for the young whistle-blower. Nevertheless, the Snowden affair represents a huge fiasco for the Obama administration and could lead to Latin Americans undertaking intelligence counter-measures against Washington. As revealed in WikiLeaks documents, Venezuela and Cuba have long collaborated on intelligence matters, and if anything the Snowden episode will probably strengthen such ties.
Low-Level Diplomatic Warfare in Caracas
According to WikiLeaks documents, the late Hugo Chávez was apparently so taken with Havana that he consulted directly with Cuban intelligence officers without bothering to vet the reporting through his own intelligence services. Meanwhile, the Cubans themselves trained and advised Chávez's security detail. Furthermore, the Cubans openly trained Venezuelan intelligence officers in "both political indoctrination and operational instruction" and some Venezuelan military officers underwent "ideological training" in Cuba itself.
Even if Chávez was unaware of recently disclosed NSA espionage, the authorities must have suspected the Bush administration was spying on Venezuela. In light of such pressures, it's certainly not surprising that Chávez would take countermeasures. Ridiculously, however, U.S. diplomats constantly played the victim while complaining of high level harassment. In 2006, for example, the U.S. embassy in Caracas claimed the Venezuelan National Guard had seized and opened "part of an inbound U.S. Military Group shipment" consisting of "household effects and commissary rations." According to the Americans, the authorities' handling of the incident "quickly spiraled out of control, with senior Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (BRV) officials accusing the United States of wrongdoing."
"Unique Threat Environment" at the U.S. Embassy
Perhaps, Chávez officials suspected that Embassy personnel was secretly working for the NSA or collecting intelligence, and the situation in Caracas continued to deteriorate in subsequent years. By early 2009, Venezuela was openly refusing to issue visas to new embassy personnel, including the Defense Attaché and USAID representative. American diplomats continued to play the victim, writing Washington that in the absence of a "credible commitment by the GBRV to normalize visa issuance for personnel assigned to Caracas, we should convey to them the potential consequences of continued harassment." Further cables suggest that, far from improving, the atmosphere became more and more toxic. One year later the embassy even requested a "Defensive Security Coordinator" or DSC to manage "defensive planning." The embassy, U.S. officials noted, had a "very unique threat environment."
Not surprisingly, Washington's political and diplomatic pressure on Caracas continued to drive Chávez closer to Havana, though the Americans seemed clueless as to why Venezuela would want to conduct an independent foreign policy. The Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, embassy staff noted, had fallen under Cuban influence. U.S. diplomats fretted that the politicization of the Ministry was "nearly complete" and complained about Chávez's policy of sending young Venezuelan diplomats to Cuba for training. The same individuals, Americans noted, were later promoted rapidly and "often act as ideological watchdogs" or "commissars" within BRV embassies.
U.S. diplomats also worried about Chávez's intelligence apparatus. Not mincing any words, the American embassy declared that joint Cuban-Venezuelan intelligence gathering "could impact U.S. interests directly." Chávez's intelligence service was among "the most hostile towards the United States in the hemisphere," but fundamentally lacked experience and expertise. With the help of the more seasoned Cubans, however, Chávez would have more routine access to the activities of the U.S. government.
Snowden Fallout
Fast forward to the present and far from deterring Cuban-Venezuelan ties, the NSA scandal has led to greater diplomatic solidarity between the two nations. In Havana, Raúl Castro has stopped short of offering asylum to Snowden but nevertheless supports Venezuelan moves to harbor the young whistle-blower. Castro, who says he's long been aware of secretive NSA programs, added that Cuba has been "one of the most harassed and spied-upon nations on the planet." If Snowden ever makes it out of the Moscow airport, Cuba will likely play an important part in the former NSA employee's travel plans. Indeed, Snowden's most straightforward route to Latin America would be on a direct Aeroflot flight from Russia to Havana. From there, the whistle-blower could continue on his way by catching a flight to Caracas.
How has the Obama administration managed to single-handedly turn much of Latin America against the U.S.? Prior to the Snowden affair, it looked as if Secretary of State John Kerry might have brokered a thaw in U.S.-Venezuelan relations. If anything, however, the Snowden affair will probably exacerbate the poisonous atmosphere so vividly described in WikiLeaks cables. Recently, the U.S. probably exerted pressure on Western European governments to divert Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane to Vienna on suspicion that Snowden was squirreled somewhere aboard. Morales, who had been traveling en route from Moscow to La Paz, denounced U.S. interference and many Latin American nations have rallied to his defense.
Perhaps, the Obama White House might have minimized diplomatic damage over the Snowden affair by not making such a deliberate attempt to apprehend the young NSA whistle-blower. In a rapidly unraveling fiasco, Obama has furthermore sought to bully and intimidate many countries who would dare to harbor Snowden. One can only guess that presently diplomatic staff at the U.S. Embassy in Caracas are possessed with a siege-like mentality and may fear the Maduro administration will resort to counter-measures. Perhaps, even as we speak U.S. diplomats are complaining to their superiors about joint Cuban-Venezuelan intelligence which is harassing American officials and unfairly targeting the U.S. embassy.

State Department: Havana Provides Safe Haven to US Fugitives

By Juan O. Tamayo, jtamayo@ElNuevoHerald.com
Cuba is harboring and supporting U.S. fugitives but may be trying to distance itself from two dozen members of a Basque terrorist group who live on the island, according to the State Department’s annual Country Report on Terrorism released Thursday.
The report for 2012 is totally separate from the department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism, which now includes Cuba, Iran, Syria and Sudan and subjects those nations to a special set of U.S. economic and other sanctions.
Advocates of keeping or removing Cuba from the list awaited the 2012 report with special interest because of media reports earlier this year, flatly denied by the State Department, that Secretary of State John Kerry would take Havana off the list.
The Cuba section of the 2012 report appeared to be similar to the section in 2011, with both noting that Havana authorities are continuing to harbor fugitives wanted in the United States and supporting them with housing, ration books and medical care.
One such fugitive is Joanne Chesimard, on the FBI’s “most wanted terrorist” list since 2005. A Black Panther who was convicted in the 1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper, she escaped from prison in 1979 and turned up in Havana in 1984. The FBI hiked the reward offered for her capture to $2 million in April.
“There was no indication that the Cuban government provided weapons or paramilitary training to terrorist groups,” the 2012 report said, in wording almost exactly the same as in the 2011 report.
Both reports also noted “suggestions” that Havana has tried to distance itself from members of Spain’s Basque Homeland and Liberty (ETA), classified by Washington as a terrorist group, who live in Cuba by “not providing services, including travel documents, to some of them.”
The 2012 version adds that two dozen ETA members are living in Cuba.
Members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, also classified as a terror group, received refuge in Cuba in past years, according to the latest version. The 2011 report noted that FARC members had received medical assistance. The FARC and Colombian government are currently holding peace talks in Havana.
Both reports also noted that the U.S. Financial Actions Task Force has identified Cuba as having “strategic … deficiencies” in the fight against terrorism financing and money laundering. The latest report adds that Cuba has now joined a regional body designed for that purpose.
Cuba has been on the separate U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism since 1982. Havana also is on a separate U.S. government list, with Venezuela and others, of countries that are not “cooperating fully with United States antiterrorism efforts.”
To remove Cuba from the list of state sponsors, the White House is required to notify the U.S. Congress that Cuba has not engaged in terrorism for some time and promised not to do so again.

Pace University’s “Left Forum” to Host Panel on The Cuban Five

Havana -- (Prensa Latina) -- The event is part of activities of the Left Forum, to be held on June 7-8, expected to be attended by thousands of people, said the National Free the Five Committee.
According to the solidarity group, the invitation was made in New York to all supporters of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez, internationally known as The Cuban Five.
Famous lawyer Martin Garbus, a member of The Cuban Five’s legal team; Stephen Kimber, a professor of the University of King’s College; Peter Roman, a professor in Hostos Community College; Keith Bolender, a professor in the Toronto University and Gloria La Riva, coordinator of the Committee, will be among the panellists.
The communiqué adds that besides the demand for the immediate release of these Cuban heroes, the panellists will examine the hostile US policy of blockade imposed on Cuba for over fifty years by successive US administrations.
The case of the Cuban Five is “an example of the US intransigence,” said the Committee.
Left Forum is a yearly conference that gathers in New York wide range left wing, progressive intellectuals, activists, scholars, organizations and public in general to discuss and share ideas about the current world situation.

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Reverendo Martin Niemöller

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
