    In this interview with Aaron McGruder he says, "There's some new evidence that has just come out about the CIA planning terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in the '60s and how they were going to set up Castro for it in order to get America behind a war in Cuba." Which, ya know, OK. I'll take that with a grain of salt. So here it is. It's a report from the Joint Chiefs to the Secretary of Defense, suggesting as part of Operation Mongoose "We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba", and "Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims", or "Lob mortal shells from outside base into base. Some damage to installations". But it goes on from there to suggest "We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. There terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government."ии

    So there's that. I thought the discussion about how it's "possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuba aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States" was a somewhat more interesting read. But hey, what's in a plan? And what about Bush giving $43 million to the Taliban last spring? Humanitarian aid, presumably food - like they always say, but C Powell gave us solemn assurances that this time the humanitarian assistance wasn't being used to prop up a despotic regime. Clinton apparently gave $70 million for opiate reduction. Kinda like in Columbia.
