  •  This one is a stretch. (0+ / 0-)

    It starts with a 6-degrees of separation association.

    While in Cuba, Ardin worked with the Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White), a feminist anti-Castro group.

    Professor Michael Seltzer pointed out that the group is led by Carlos Alberto Montaner who is reportedly connected to the CIA.

    So she, as a feminist, worked with a feminist anti-Castro group who is "reportedly" led by someone connected to the CIA? To which they link the following.

    However, this summer, we saw a controversy arise between Montaner and an unknown Cuban academic living in Denver, named Arturo López.  This fact in itself would be of little interest were it not that for the first time, the prominent anti-Castro man (Montaner) clearly admitted his access to information that at the least was confidential, hinting at specialized services, probably those of the CIA.
    Neither of these sources are mainstream, but even at face value saying his accuser is "connected to the CIA" is dubious at best.

    Please proceed, Governor.

      •  I'm sorry, but with this whole (0+ / 0-)

        six degrees of separation nonsense you can prove anything.

        All we have to do is connect the dots and we can find out who's behind this
        conspiracy.  Let's see.... AA is involved in the same political
        party as politician and actor Gert Fylking... who voiced a vehicle in the
        Swedish version of the Pixar movie "Cars"... which was written by Dan
        Fogelman... who also wrote "Crazy, Stupid Love", starring... Kevin Bacon!
        My god, Kevin Bacon is behind all this!

        Amazing how you can prove essentially anything you want when you do what
        that original article did

        I'm sorry, but anyone who thinks that it's relevant that AA wrote articles for a cuban magazine, which was run by a group, which was connected to another group, which was connected to a guy, that some professor says is connected to another guy, which a wordpress blog says is a CIA agent - and that she worked for a women's rights group in cuba, which once held a parade in Florida, where a guy who blew up a plane marched beside Celene Dion - needs to get their head examined.  You can do that sort of stuff with pretty much anyone on the planet.  Hey, guess what?  You're right now talking part on a forum where you're talking with a former US congressman's niece.  YOU'RE A CIA AGENT NOW!
