The Huffington Post
The Huffington Post employs an intelligence agent from Cuba (an official Terrorist-Sponsor) named Margarita Alarcon to consistently write opposing U.S. policy towards Cuba. Alarcon is the daughter of one of the Castro regime’s highest officials, and works for an agency controlled by Cuba’s KGB –founded Intelligence service. In an August 3 article she wrote for the blog, Alarcon stated,
- "Travel restrictions in order to leave Cuba were implemented on the onset of the Cuban revolution to prevent criminals of the Batista regime from escaping trial. Unfortunately no one remembered to eliminate this restriction as time elapsed and it became part of the status quo."
Regarding the Foreign Agents Registration Act, the U.S. Dept. of Justice stated,
- “The purpose of [the Act] is to insure that the U.S. Government and the people of the United States are informed of the source of information and the identity of persons attempting to influence U.S. public opinion, policy, and laws. The Act also requires that informational materials be labeled with a conspicuous statement that the information is disseminated by the agents on behalf of the foreign principal.”
However the Huffington Post has made no such attempt to make clear Alarcon's credentials as an agent of a foreign government.
