John Kerry

According to Granma newspaper, Senator John Kerry (D-Mass) and a member of the US House of Representatives had put a “hold’” on the money until they could get more information on the programs to be funded.

These kind of secret funds have been used to finance the so-called “Cuban dissidence” and they are distributed by the US State Department and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

As part of this plan to destabilize the Cuban Revolution, the US Congress appropriated $20 million for the so-called Cuba Democracy Assistance, a euphemism to mask the subversive nature of this program.

However, the funds were not released as scandals hit the handling of the $20 million appropriated for the previous fiscal year.

The Obama administration took months before it appointed a new USAID chief and then it launched a review of the programs’ effectiveness.
