    What a waste of money!!! I can not help but wander what this money is being used for.

    What happens is that the USA gives this money to these organizations many of whom then give huge portions of it to Cuban nationals who end up working on behalf of USA interests inside Cuba.

    And the funny thing is that no one in the USA is allowed by law to accpet money, directly or indirectly, from Cuba to work on their behalf.  That makes one an “unlawful registered agent” of Cuba.  I bet if some USA citizen got locked up for accepting money from the USA, no one would call him a “dissident.”
