Media Blows Lid Off of Super Secret CIA Plan to Undermine Communist Dictatorships

Wow, of all the yawners:

In early 2009, a U.S. government contractor sent a Serbian music promoter to Cuba with these covert marching orders: Recruit one of Havana's most notorious rappers to spark a youth movement against the government....

USAID's secret Cuban hip-hop project sought to spread democracy, but like other U.S. operations on the island, it was executed by amateurs.

This would be laughable if I didn't hear NPR give the subject 15 minutes straight of discussion. Oh, the horror! The abject horror of the US trying to undermine a communist dictatorship!

I guess the spin they're trying to put on this is that the CIA put innocents in these countries at risk by using USAID as a cover.

Um, well, yes, now that the media has exposed the story these people are at risk. When this was all classified information, not so much.

It's funny how the media always overlooks their own culpability when it comes to putting people's lives in danger.

1 Well, undermining communists equates to undermining NPR.

3 Don't you see it's only a concern when the lives of journalists are put at risk.
