Operation Streaming: U.S new intelligence operation to distort the Cuban history

To modify historical facts on a whim, adapting them to a story that is harmful to the sovereignty of the peoples, is once again the bet of the U.S. government against the Cuban nation. That is what the denunciation that this newspaper amplified a few weeks ago is about, regarding an operation of the U.S. special services conceived -when not- to "change the regime" in Cuba.

Called Operation Streaming, which is not a very new term, it has among other purposes to rewrite the history of Cuba, to provide a sweetened description of pre-1959 capitalism and, of course, to present a whitewashed version of the neo-colony and the role of the U.S. in this history.

Harry Belafonte on Cuba and Fidel Castro

Harry Belafonte, the renowned African-American singer, actor and civil rights activist who died yesterday aged 96, was a friend of socialist Cuba and enjoyed a close relationship with Comandante Fidel Castro. Some interesting aspects of this long-time relationship are described in his autobiography titled "My Song: A Memoir by Harry Belafonte", pages 356-366:

But I felt a special frustration with America's stance toward an island close to home: not Grenada, but Cuba.
