Latin American nations under assault in massive Obama campaign of aggression

Published on Intrepid Report, by Wayne Madsen Report WMR, May 6, 2014.

President Obama reversed the largely “benign neglect” of his predecessor toward the wave of progressive governments coming to power in Latin America and, at some time during his administration, he signed a classified presidential Finding” to do whatever is necessary to oust left-leaning governments in the Western Hemisphere and replace them with docile, pro-American ones.  

A survey of the current situation across the hemisphere shows that the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Southern Command, the latter based in Miami, are working nonstop to destabilize governments across Latin America and the Caribbean.

The most outlandish CIA operation was the use of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to launch a Cuban Twitter operation called “Zun Zuneo,” or Proyecto ZZ,” which was aimed at forming “smart mobs” across Cuba to protest against the Cuban government and seek its overthrow in a “Cuban Spring.” The operation used two contractors in Costa Rica, a fact that has angered both the outgoing right-wing government in San José and the incoming leftist one. Operating from Costa Rica, contractors Creative Associates International and Mobile Accord of Denver obtained 400,000 CubaCel mobile telephone numbers and began sending Cubans Twitter-like text messages purportedly from Spain. The USAID operations also involved a front company in the Cayman Islands, MovilChat, which used a Cayman Islands bank account to covertly fund the Zun Zuneo caper. USAID funding for Zun Zuneo was secretly diverted from an unknown USAID project in Pakistan. The bank account used by USAID and MovilChat was maintained at the Cayman Islands branch of the Bermuda-based Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Ltd. The Carlyle Group, along with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) are significant shareholders of the bank.

USAID has used technology similar to Zun Zuneo to mobilize “smart mobs” in Moldova, the Philippines, and Ukraine. The May 1 anti-government mass protests in Cambodia also appear to have been prompted by a USAID/CIA “smart mob” Twitter-like operation.

The operations targeting Cuba also involved a number of Cuban exile non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with records of supporting other USAID/CIA operations aimed at Havana. The operation was launched from Barcelona and it also involved U.S. operatives from Denver and Nicaragua, as well as from Costa Rica and Washington, DC. … //
