In an Associated Press Article posted by ABC News on April 3, 2014, titled "US Secretly Built 'Cuban Twitter' to Stir Unrest," the press states that the U.S. created a complicated, clandestine operation to assist young Cubans in communicating in order to assist them in dissenting.
The article states, "... details uncovered by the AP appear to muddy the U.S. Agency for International Development's longstanding claims that it does not conduct covert actions, and the details could undermine the agency's mission to deliver aid to the world's poor and vulnerable — an effort that requires the trust and cooperation of foreign governments."
The article also specifically states that Alan Gross, the American imprisoned in Cuba for taking in communication devices did in fact work for a U.S. government agency and took in sophisticated communication devices. The U.S. has previously denied involvement.
The article states, "The project, dubbed "ZunZuneo," slang for a Cuban hummingbird's tweet, was publicly launched shortly after the 2009 arrest in Cuba of American contractor Alan Gross. He was imprisoned after traveling repeatedly to the country on a separate, clandestine USAID mission to expand Internet access using sensitive technology that only governments use."
The facts, presuming they are true, and the statements made in the article are shocking on many levels.
