Cuba No Threat According to US Intelligence Report

HAVANA TIMES, Feb 2 — The director of US National Intelligence, James Clapper, presented the agency’s annual report before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, reports the website Café Fuerte.

“Fearful of instability, Cuban authorities are gradually implementing the economic reforms announced last year,” reads the 30-page report containing an assessment of the challenges and threats facing the United States.

According to the intelligence gathered, the Raul Castro government is concerned about losing political control over society and it is therefore mistrustful of Internet use and social networks.

Unlike previous years, however, the document makes no reference to Cuba in the section “Terrorist Threats,” nor does it mention a possible danger posed by mass exodus from the island.
