Skip to comments.US reportedly dispatched Latin Americans to foment Cuba political change

WASHINGTON An Obama administration program secretly dispatched young Latin Americans to Cuba using the cover of health and civic programs to provoke political change, a clandestine operation that put those foreigners in danger even after a U.S. contractor was hauled away to a Cuban jail.
Beginning as early as October 2009, a project overseen by the U.S. Agency for International Development sent Venezuelan, Costa Rican and Peruvian young people to Cuba in hopes of ginning up rebellion. The travelers worked undercover, often posing as tourists, and traveled around the island scouting for people they could turn into political activists.
In one case, the workers formed an HIV-prevention workshop that memos called "the perfect excuse" for the program's political goals -- a gambit that could undermine America's efforts to improve health globally.
But their efforts were fraught with incompetence and risk, an Associated Press investigation found: Cuban authorities questioned who was bankrolling the travelers. The young workers nearly blew their mission to "identify potential social-change actors." One said he got a paltry, 30-minute seminar on how to evade Cuban intelligence, and there appeared to be no safety net for the inexperienced workers if they were caught.

Foment political change to what? The politics in Cuba are exactly where Obama wants to take us.
My thoughts exactly. What do they want to change and why? With Obama, it is never for the good of the U.S.
And there we have it FRiends, more exposition to another bunch of “brilliant” plans hatched at the Unicorn Corral of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
What else are all those fenced needed for the Most Transparent Administration in History but to keep those little beasts penned up so nobody else could learn from their imaginary mind melds?
I doubt this.
No doubt if it’s true he had no hand and actively worked against it. Being anti-communist will never be used to describe him.
Anybody know anything about Creative Associates International?
I need to go to work but will see what I can find this evening. Who runs it and how much is our government paying them?
I didn’t know Obama was doing such a good job.
Maybe they want to move Cuba even more left?
Let’s see. We help overthrow Ukraine’s government which is right on the border with Russia and don’t expect him to retaliate. Makes sense to me. /sarc
A few articles from the website of Communist Party USA.
Prior to the ‘08 election...
The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them.
Right after the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones weve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek BARACK OBAMA
“Barack Obama told supporters that ‘change has come to America’ as he claimed victory in a historic presidential election.”
The communists running Cuba are tight with your boy KGB Putin.
“We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”
They need to get rid of Castro. They are not willing to go along with the NWO. It is another dictatorship like all the others.
Keep in mind that the O admin does all this behind our backs. if we know about it, we are told it is for freedom that they are doing this.
But it really is not. It is about installing another puppet government in Cuba ripe to turn Cuba to the world dominate cabal.
The Obama admin has no problem with the Castro way of marxist power, it is merely because of the Castro’s not wanting to go along and also their affiliation with Russia.
I am just guessing, but this fits the mold of every other nation Obama has meddled in.
It will be interesting to see how the Kremlin reacts to this news, and whether you will buy into, too.
Who then is dispatching the swarms across our southern border to foment political change in the U.S.? What else could it be, with the warm greetings and accommodations awaiting them upon arrival, followed by swift distribution to preselected destinations?
To a military tacticion this would be indicative of prepositioning assets (trained agents among "the children"). The Muslim agents and sympathisers that have infiltrated our government structure are using "the children" as the cover for the invasion as their counterparts in Gaza use children as a shield in attacking Israel.
Cuba will NEVER be communist enough for O’bummer-
The only change Bummer would want to see on that
island - is a muslim caliphate!
( this article is disinformation- the O’bummer
administration has supported ALL countries that
are enemies of the U.S.- including Cuba- )
The company supports communities transitioning from conflict through participatory programs that help instill democratic values and processes; ......serves the needs of political transitions, ....governance, ....elections,..... and capacity building for NGOs;... and offers electoral education and integrity programs.
