It is being reported that the USA created a $1.6 million effort in Cuba to create a ‘social media network’ meant to be used by USA trolls to create difficulties for the Cuban government. Associated Press documents that have identified this project —
“WASHINGTON (AP) — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba’s communist government.
McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be told of the company’s ties to the U.S. government.”
Its is being reported that USAID is the culprit behind this propaganda/troll attack upon another sovereign nation the the USA, out-of-its-mind, continues to hate and to cause trouble on an ongoing basis.
The social media con was named “ZunZuneo” and the ordinary users of this fakery were completely unknowing of the USA government involvement in this near ‘act of war’ upon the sovereignty of the Cuban people.
It is being reported that this project was begun in 2009 with a Washington based business, Creative Associates International, obtained about 500,000 cellphone numbers of Cuban citizens. The company tried very hard to keep its involvement completely under wraps through the efforts of creating ‘front companies’ in other parts of our world and by manipulating the money through Cayman Island secret banking services.
Is Cuba being the only country being targeted by the efforts of USAID? Likely not as there are suspicions that some of the uprisings in the Philippines have been brought on by simila activities as the USA works to get itself back into the Philippines in a very big way. We certainly can expect a lot going on in Venezuela to be because of the actions of the very nefarious USA as it proceeds full steam ahead keeping our world off kilter when we could be looking for peace and not more war.
