What kind of school of thought does the USAID finance in Cuba?

Samantha Power, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) — this agency is among the top funding sources for subversion in Cuba —, urged the Cuban government to respect the human rights of rapper Maykel “Osorbo” Castillo who is imprisoned in the province of Pinar del Río waiting for trial.

“It is encouraging to hear about the liberation of Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara but the government continues to jail Maykel Castillo and other artists who dare to demand human rights. They must end this nefarious attempt to silence freedom of thought and debate,” said the public servant in her Twitter profile.

Confirmed to her position by the US Senate last April, the journalist, academician, and former US ambassador to the UN, apparently, is not well-aware of the issue of Cuba.

What is the “thought” the USAID Administrator is referring to?

Is, by any chance, asking desperately through social networks for the invasion of the US military to destroy the island or claiming for candies to the same Cuban children suffering from cancer and other illness due to the shortage of medicines caused by the US blockade imposed on the island?

According to the counter-revolutionary webpages on Internet — some of them are, indeed, financed by USAID itself—, the unfortunate statements of Power could be potentially related to the lobby exerted by anti-Cuban lawmakers within the US, who cannot forgive all the praises she made to the Cuban medical brigades sent to Africa to fight Ebola in 2016, when she was US ambassador to the UN.

If not, the current Administrator of USAID should garner more information on the school of thoughts in which she wants to spend 20 million USD, allotted by Joe Biden’s administration to the agency she leads, aiming to financing the subversion against Cuba during the fiscal year 2022.
