Felix Rodriguez: Kerry No Foe of Castro  8/30/2004 NewsMax: "Rodriguez is also looking forward to his featured speech against the candidate that is scheduled for a Sept 12 rally in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the Vietnam Veterans for the Truth. This vet group, like the hard-charging Swift Boat clan, is doing everything it can to, in Rodriguez’s words, “to get the real word out about John Kerry.” ...Without targeting specific programs, Kerry’s slash-and-burn bill sought to reduce the Intelligence budget by $300 million in each of fiscal years 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Rodriguez has, of course, tracked all this and is using it for fodder in his radio broadcasts. According to the hero, he has had to ramp up production of the Spanish edition of “Shadow Warrior” to accommodate all the requests from his listeners, who want to learn more about the real record of Kerry."

A Treacherous Betrayal Of One Of Our Own  8/27/2004 AfroCubaWeb 

Cuba cuts relations with Panama  8/27/2004 BBC: "Three of the men who are Cuban-born US citizens flew directly to Miami where they were met by their families while leftist students rioted in Panama City. The Cuban government described the pardon as "an affront to the victims of terrorism and their families" and described Ms Moscoso as an "accomplice and protector of terrorism". However, the BBC's Stephen Gibbs reports from Havana that the rupture may be short-lived as the Panamanian leader's successor, Martin Torrijos, has publicly opposed the pardons and said he would work to repair relations. The president-elect is due to take office next Wednesday."

Bush's Cuban-American support slips  8/27/2004 St Petersburg Times: "The poll underscores that the new Cuba policy has turned some former critics of the Clinton administration into Bush critics. Jose Basulto, head of Brothers to the Rescue, and Ramon Raul Sanchez, head of the anti-Castro Democracy Movement, have come out against the policy."

U.S. Denies Role in Cuban Exiles' Pardon  8/27/2004 Washington Post: "Bush administration officials denied any role yesterday in the politically fortuitous pardon of four Cuban exiles by the outgoing Panamanian government. Three of the exiles -- who were convicted in connection with a plot to assassinate Cuban President Fidel Castro at a summit of Latin American leaders in 2000 -- were immediately flown to Miami. President Bush, whose Cuba policies have stirred anger among Cuban Americans in Florida, will hold a campaign rally in Miami today. The Cuban American vote was crucial to Bush's 537-vote margin in Florida in 2000, and his political advisers have worried that poor turnout among Cuban Americans could swing the state to Democrat John F. Kerry."

Hurricane Charley caused losses in excess of one billion dollars  8/25/2004 Granma 

Cuba visit restrictions may be tightened  8/25/2004 UPI: "The proposal by Florida Republican Rep. David Rivera would not only cut off Medicaid and food stamps it would end housing assistance for a year, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday. His bill is aimed at stopping recent arrivals who come to the United States, file applications for benefits and then visit Cuba. Rivera said the money spent on the trips only helps the Fidel Castro regime."

US Begins Cuba Broadcasts Relayed by Military Planes  8/24/2004 VOA 

Panama-Cuba 'pardon' row worsens  8/23/2004 BBC: "The Cuban government also recently alleged the convicted men were planning to flee from their Panamanian prison and said it would hold the Moscoso government responsible if this happened. Earlier this year, it criticised as too lenient the four-to-eight year sentences imposed on the men. Cuba had tried to extradite four of the Cuban exiles, including the alleged ringleader, Luis Posada Carriles, who has been wanted by Havana for many years. He is accused of a string of offences, including an attack on a Cuban passenger plane which crashed off the coast of Barbados in 1976."

In Cuba, More Improvising Than Uprising - Instead of blaming Castro, residents are looking for ways around new U.S. sanctions.  8/21/2004 LA Times: "Havana's bustling hotels, bars and plazas show no ill effects from the U.S. limits, thanks largely to a continuing boom in European tourism to the island. Visits and revenue rose 13% last year, surpassing remittance income for the first time since the 1959 revolution."

CUBA is recuperating from Hurricane Charley  8/18/2004 Cuba Now 

A political assassination attempt  8/18/2004 Radio Progreso: "On Aug. 11, in a news story headlined “Heinz-Kerry charity assailed, defended,” The Herald reported that three Miami Republican Congresspeople – Lincoln Díaz-Balart, his brother Mario, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen – charged that “charitable donations from Teresa Heinz-Kerry's fortune ... may have indirectly helped the Cuban government link up to the Internet over a decade ago.”

Cuban capital remains without power after hurricane  8/14/2004 AFP 

GOP bastions in Deep South buck Bush's Cuba policy  8/14/2004 AP: "President Bush promised Florida's Cuban American voters a fortified American trade embargo against Cuban dictator Fidel Castro by cutting what U.S. tourists can spend in Cuba from $167 to $50 daily. But Southern states solidly in Bush's electoral camp - including Mississippi, Texas, Alabama and Louisiana - have been rejoicing over multimillion-dollar Cuban trade contracts for the past three years."

Cuban Rastas gather surreptitiously  8/13/2004 Dallas Morning News: "A great many Rastas are in jail," said Eligio Flores Ruíz, 32. "The government doesn't accept us. They say we're a threat to the revolution. They're bothered by the fact that we're free thinkers." Government supporters deny that and say what bothers them is that Rastas break the law – they smoke marijuana."

Cuba policy is used against GOP  8/12/2004 Miami Herald: "Democratic candidates hope disagreements among Cuban Americans over the Bush administration's new restrictions on travel to Cuba will convince some to abandon the Republican Party."

CIA pick began agency career in Cold War  8/12/2004 Washington Times: "Cuba was the dominant issue. Its 1959 revolution — at first a broadly based movement to topple a dictator — was sharply veering toward the left, putting a major Soviet ally just 90 miles off U.S. shores in the middle of the Cold War. Details of Mr. Goss' career remain shrouded by four decades of secrecy. Neither he nor the CIA have given any but the sketchiest description. Mr. Goss apparently joined the CIA just out of Yale, where he earned a degree in ancient Greek in 1960. He worked in Miami, which was becoming a magnet for Cuban emigres. Some were recruited by the CIA and trained for what turned out to be one of the agency's greatest disasters: the 1961 invasion of Cuba that was crushed by Fidel Castro at the Bay of Pigs."

CIA Director-designate A Former US Spy In Latin America  8/11/2004 AFP: "The 65-year-old Florida Republican and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee worked nearly 10 years for the CIA and US Army intelligence in Miami, Cuba, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Britain… He said he had, in the 1960s, been involved in "small boat handling" during the Bay of Pigs period, but declined to be more specific. Cannistraro said small boat handling "would mean paramilitary activity, if he was based on the Cuban task force running agents by boat in and out. So maybe that`s what they mean by `small boats.` "I know he was involved in the Bay of Pigs operation, he worked out of Miami with Cuban exiles," said Cannistraro, adding he did not at the time know Goss personally."


Santiago de Cuba, UNESCO’s Caribbean Capital  8/10/2004 Cuba Now: "The city of Santiago de Cuba was confirmed as the “Caribbean Capital” of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The Director of the Regional UNESCO Office Francisco Lacayo said last week that there is no doubt about the importance of the eastern Cuban city in the culture of the Caribbean region."

Bush squeeze on the Cubans  8/6/2004 Daily Nation, Barbados: "CARICOM, whose foreign ministers had dinner with President Castro in Havana last month during a meeting of the standing CARICOM-Cuba Ministerial Committee to sustain best possible relations, should raise a collective voice of concern over the implications of this latest anti-Cuban initiative of a failed anti-Castro United States policy."

Edwards, in Florida, Voices Support for Easing Limits on Travel to Cuba  8/3/2004 LA Times: "Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. John Edwards on Monday supported an easing of restrictions on travel to Cuba, a policy he said would help spur political change in that nation and that his spokesman predicted would win votes in Florida's crucial Cuban American community."

Cuban 'Fahrenheit' Telecast Raises Oscar Questions  8/3/2004 Reuters 

Cuban show at Weisman canceled over Visa problems  8/2/2004 AP: "Museum director Lyndel King and two curators in Cuba had been working on the show, which was scheduled to open early next year, for four years. Nine artists were chosen and were expected to oversee the installation of their work and present talks in Minneapolis. Some of the artists also planned to create new artworks on site. But King said tensions between the United States and Cuba are running so high that the museum concluded it was impossible to do the show. "It was to be an exhibition with a lot of installations and, while we could have done it from the artists' plans, it's not the same," King said. "The pieces would have been lifeless if the artists weren't here for that last-minute input that makes them sing." "

Another Cuban demonstration in Miami against Bush measures  8/2/2004 Granma: "More than 550 people participated in a demonstration last Saturday against the measures preventing Cuban émigrés in the United States from visiting their relatives on the island and helping them economically, outside the offices of ultra-right congresswoman Iliana Ros, according to Andrés Gómez, coordinator of the Antonio Maceo Brigade. The demonstration, sponsored by the association of Christian Mothers in Defense of the Family and supported by the Alliance of Cuban Workers (ATC), the Martí Alliance, the Antonio Maceo Brigade and the José Martí Association is the third in three consecutive Saturdays condemning and rejecting these cruel measures."

OFAC not dealing with travel applications to Cuba  8/2/2004 Granma: "THE Treasury Department’s Office for Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) does not currently possess the staffing levels required to process applications for licenses for the thousands of Cuban-Americans who wish to carry out their “right” to travel to Cuba once every three years, but it does in fact have dozens of officials to harass people who dare to travel to the island from U.S. territory without that nation’s blessing."

The African Cuban Diaspora’s Cultural Shelters and Their Sudden Disappearance in 1959  8/1/2004 AfroCubaWeb: by Eugène Godfried - "Thus, it is a deliberate choice to employ the method of interviews with distinguished personalities who were directly involved in the activities of those ‘Sociedades de Negros’, ‘Societies of Blacks’. Nowadays, we depend on oral history to be able to look into this past in order to comprehend the present Cuban society. It is also high time that grassroots sections among cultural workers and activists in Cuba themselves speak their mind to brothers and sisters all over the world. In so doing, a longstanding silence around this eye – catching subject will be transformed into a vibrant exchange between Cubans and friends from all around the world."

US travel curbs force Cuba exodus  8/1/2004 BBC: "Hundreds of Cuban Americans have been returning to the US, as tough new curbs on travel to Cuba imposed by Washington come into effect on Sunday."
