The CIA Should Declare Bankruptcy
June 26, 2012
HAVANA TIMES — If indeed the CIA was the sponsor of the recently
concluded "Festival Clic" in Havana, the leaders of that notorious
international agency should seriously consider filing for "bankruptcy"
According to Cubadebate, an official website of the Cuban Communist
Party (PCC), the "Festival Clic," which was held at the office of the
opposition Estado de SATS group, was organized by the CIA.
The purported aim of this activity was to destabilize the Cuban
Revolution and so as to lay the foundation for a future US military
attack against the island.
For this, the CIA used its Cuban-based agents: Yoani Sanchez and Antonio
Rodiles, who organized the event along with the Spanish "Evento Blog
Español" (EBE) group, noted Cubadebate.
For at least two of its three days, I participated in the "Festival
Clic." There I learned that if this event were in fact sponsored by the
CIA (an entity that used to make us feel so threatened), then people can
now breathe easy. The CIA is flat broke.
That's right. It turns out the tired old American institution is
financially on its last leg. The paltry resources that went into the
June 21 to 23 sessions demonstrated more than anything else that "the
Agency" is no longer a danger to anyone these days.
It turned out that the CIA gave the participants in the event nothing
more than baloney sandwiches and Kool-Aid (oh…though on Friday afternoon
they had the kindness to give us cheese rolls – but without the
Now I wonder: Could it be that the CIA couldn't even come up with enough
money to buy a little coffee for its agents, just to keep them alert
throughout the afternoon sessions?
If what Cubadebate is saying is true, then I am an eyewitness to the
beginning of the collapse of not only that once-powerful international
espionage agency, but of the economic might of the very United States of
Yes, dear readers, judging by the horrendous performance of the CIA at
the recently concluded "Festival Clic," the introduction of ration books
in the United States is only a question of time.
If this is the case, I don't see how this institution will ever return
to anything like its economic splendor of the past.
I don't think that Cubadebate should be concerned, at least not
directly, with the "bankruptcy" of the United States. To tell the truth,
with our own country being as screwed up as it is, I can't imagine us
allowing in boat people fleeing our northern neighbor.
It's worth mentioning that at the closing of the ceremony, Sanchez and
Rodiles not only denied any link with the CIA, but they disavowed any
institutional sponsors other than Sanchez' own Academia Bloguer
collective, Rodiles' Estado de SATS organization and the EBE group.
