    Cuba’s Healthcare Scam

    Humberto Fontova is the author of four books including: The Longest
    Romance: The Mainstream Media and Fidel Castro, Fidel: Hollywood’s
    Favorite Tyrant and Exposing the Real Che Guevara: And the Useful Idiots
    Who Idolize Him.

    “Cuba has made significant contributions to health and science,”
    recently declared Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews

    The occasion was the signing of a “memorandum of understanding to
    encourage cooperation between the two countries on health matters to
    build on each other’s knowledge and experience, and benefit biomedical
    research and public health at large.”

    Tell it to Tuvalu, President Barack Obama and Secretary Burwell. Tuvalu
    is a group of Pacific islands north of Fiji formerly belonging to
    Britain when known as the “Ellice Islands.” The natives seem like
    perfectly charming people.

    But despite its charm, Tuvalu is not known as a particularly advanced
    place scientifically-speaking–and yet its natives recently gasped while
    witnessing the medical practices of a place even more primitive in its
    medical practices: Cuba.

    “Cuba’s contribution to medical education in the region has been
    welcomed by many Pacific countries,” according to a recent story from
    Radio Australia (the Aussie version of NPR, hence liberal in outlook.)
    “But some are finding that doctors who’ve studied in Cuba need extra
    training when they return home. Tuvalu finds Cuban-trained doctors need
    skills gap filled.”

    Back in 2008, you see, Tuvalu fell for the Castro-regime/United
    Nations/mainstream media propaganda mantra about Cuba’s “free and
    fabulous healthcare” and eagerly sent 22 promising Tuvaluan students to
    medical school in Cuba.

    But upon their return with those medical degrees, as Radio Australia
    explains [emphasis added]:

    “the [Tuvaluan] government is concerned about their level of practical
    training … So the Education Department is planning to send returning
    [from Cuba] Tuvalu doctors to Kiribati [a nearby primitive island] for a
    special internship, as the department’s pre-service training officer
    Atabi Ewekia explains.”

    In brief, the incompetence of Cuba-trained doctors is such that they
    will be essentially “de-programmed” in a medical school where, a mere
    two generations ago, medicine was probably the province of witch-doctors
    with bones through their noses.

    And, thanks to Obama, the U.S. taxpayer will soon pay for the Cuban
    trainers of those Cuban doctors who so desperately needed de-programming
    to share their “significant contributions to health and science” with
    U.S. health professionals and researchers.

    Unbeknownst to most Americans, pre-Castro Cuba boasted the 13th lowest
    infant-mortality on earth –ahead of France, Belgium, West Germany,
    Israel, Japan, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

    Castro’s Cuba, on the other hand, is ravaged by diseases long-eradicated
    in Cuba (Dengue, Cholera) and of her “doctors” fortunate enough to
    escape, the overwhelmingly majority flunk the exam given in the U.S. for
    licensing as doctor’s assistants.”

    So let’s have a closer look at one of the U.S. media’s favorite
    veritable “go-to-people” on Cuban healthcare (besides Michael Moore)
    Gail Reed. The Huffington Post proudly carries her as a contributor and
    recently quoted her on the very issue at hand:

    “This [the HHS-Cuba deal] is a win-win for Americans and Cubans! We’re
    now one step closer to a safer, healthier future for people in both

    Huffington Post describes Gail Reed as “Founder of Medical Education
    Cooperation with Cuba, a U.S. non-profit promoting cooperation among the
    U.S., Cuban and global health communities, where she is currently
    Research Director.”

    Sounds pretty innocuous, no?

    But for the past 35 years Havana resident Gail Reed has also been
    married to an officer of Cuba’s Directorio General de Intelligencia (spy
    service) named Julian Torres Rizo.

    This KGB-trained apparatchik recruited Reed back in 1969 when she
    visited Cuba as a member of the (DGI-created) Venceremos Brigades of
    “starry-eyed” U.S. college kids. Obama’s future “neighbors” Bill Ayers
    and Bernadine Dohrn, by the way, served as recruiters for these
    Venceremos Brigades. This was an important function for the famous
    couple as leaders of the terrorist Weather Underground.

    Not that any American viewers imbibing her reports on the marvels of
    Cuba’s healthcare and the wickedness of the U.S. “blockade” of her
    adopted country in those “mainstream” media organs might have guessed
    any of Gail Reed’s background.
