From the Bay of Pigs to the ‘Bay of Tweets’

    “The CIA has promised that it will “never again” use an international vaccination campaign as a cover for intelligence gathering.”

    Excellent article. One you probably won’t find much of anywhere else without looking specifically for it.
    JMO (that and a quarter would get you a call at a pay phone in the 70′s). I understand the Cuban’s in the U.S. wanting their country back in the 1963 +/- time (even though it was controlled by U.S. interests and corrupt). But I don’t believe most citizens of the U.S feel them as a threat today. The cold war as we knew it is over.
    What is the purpose today of not dealing with our neighbors or trying to control them? Off the soap box.
