Once again, Washington staged a comic sketch against Cuba. They got their hands on the discredit version of an alleged link between Havana and Venezuela with drug trafficking.
Miami-based America TeVe’s journalist Jose Nacher was ordered to do so.
His main source is an old ghost who still wanders the city at the service of the United States, Roger Noriega, former Assistant Secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs.
This man accused Cuban military authorities of being involved in the cocaine trafficking from Venezuela at a hearing organized before the U.S. Homeland Security’s Subcommittee.
He warned that last May an unidentified Venezuelan military man reported the U.S. Police Department that Cuban officials were involved in such illegal business, whose movement was originated in La Guaira’s Port.
According to Noriega, it seems that such Cuban officials ordered Venezuela’s Security not to meddle in “drug trafficking operations carried out by Colombian guerrilla men inside Venezuela.”
The aforementioned reporter added in his article that Noriega had confirmed that these illegal activities were linked to “Maduro’s family and regime,” something he could not prove, either.
Finally, he argued: “We must break off relations with the Havana regime.”
Likewise, “we should feel the support of the international community in order to impose financial sanctions against those criminals.”
Who is Roger Noriega?
Let’s see some examples:
-He is famous for his racist behavior. He looks down on the UN and hates Cuba. He is the loyal assistant of Rep. Senator Jesse Helms and always showed candid admiration for fascist Chilean general Augusto Pinochet.
-In 1998, he said to The Washington Post that most Chilean believes that Pinochet’s coup saved the country from a ruined anarchy.
-Promoter of the coup d'Étatin Venezuela in 2002 along with former President of Colombia and leader of its paramilitary forces Alvaro Uribe.
-In August 2003, he chose not to attend the inauguration of the Paraguayan president as he feared the resounding presence of Fidel Castro could cast a shadow on him.
