The Cuban threat

I looked at the Director of National Intelligence’s “Annual Threat Assessment” (pdf) to see how Cuba is described, and this headline jumped out at me: “Venezuela: Leading Anti-US Regional Force.”

I wonder how Fidel Castro feels about that.

Regarding Cuba, there is no discussion at all of Cuba as a military or terrorism threat.

The Cuba section assesses the chances of a “sudden Cuban mass migration attempt” – they are “low” – and says Cuban intelligence watches “U.S. activities for insight into our operations and intentions globally.” Also: “Cuba maintains intelligence liaison relationships with a number of US adversaries and competitors.”
