From Hell’s Heart, The Bush Department Of State Spits At Cuba

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 11, 2009

The latest news on Cuba is the release of a 2007 report written by Bush State Department officials that accuses the Castro régime of, among other things, poisoning the pets of US diplomats assigned to Cuba with the alleged “apparent goal” being “to instigate dissension within USINT ranks”.

Funnily enough, I would think that such treatment, far from instigating dissension, would put the US’ diplomatic/spy ranks into Circle The Wagons Mode. To me it sounds suspiciously like the bogus “they broke Elian’s bed!” and “they broke the bedroom doors!” stories from 2000.

I wonder if this story is being released as some sort of pushback on the part of outgoing or burrowed-in Bush DoSers against Obama’s and the current Congress’ plans to try and put US-Cuban relations on something resembling a sane footing?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
