Another crazy USA/Cuba subversion story uncovered by AP

Last time it was the Cuban Twitter, this time we have the US, via its USAID vehicle, trying to recruit political activists from inside Cuba’s youth. Story here (and it’s wildly good), excerpt here:

USAID hired Creative Associates International, a Washington-based company, as part of a civil society program against Cuba’s communist government. The same company was central to the creation of a “Cuban Twitter” — a messaging network revealed in April by The Associated Press, designed to reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. 
According to internal documents obtained by the AP and interviews in six countries, USAID’s young operatives posed as tourists, visited college campuses and used a ruse that could undermine USAID’s credibility in critical health work around the world: An HIV-prevention workshop one called the “perfect excuse” to recruit political activists, according to a report by Murillo’s group. 
Beats me why Evo Morales chucked USAID out of Bolivia.
