Buro de Prensa Independiete de Cuba

Cuban American Foundation
Founded under Reagan's auspices with US government help, this organization has seen members of it board of directors indicted in attempted assassinations and bombings.  It also has employed individuals on the FBI watch list of known terrorist. Your usual right wing Cuban American organization. 

Has a round up from the press, many sources.  Right wing leadership. Got $98,000 in 1999 from USAID under Helms Burton. This program funnels millions of our tax dollars to what appears to be largely white dissidents in an island with a majority black population...

Cuba Free Press
Claims to be out of money soon, after receiving $280,000 from 1998 to 1999 from USAID under Helms-Burton.  Gets 250,000 hits a month, which probably translates to about 25,000 user visits. Pay off a lot of reporters in Cuba.  How many are black?
