  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Wednesday morning in Dublin surrounded by her family and close friends.  Irish journalist and filmaker Bernie, a journalist for Radio Havana Cuba´s English Language Service and dedicated most of her years at the station in covering the case of the Cuban Five.
Condolenses to her loved ones.

Irish journalist and filmmaker Bernie Dwyer interviewed in 2010 by the Cuban News Agency on her latest documentary, The Day Diplomacy Died made the film to expose "the absence of any action taken against the Miami terrorists by the White House" as well as why the Cuban Five were apprehended while the "avowedly violent organizations like Comandos F-4, Brothers to the Rescue, Cuban American National Foundation’s armed wing, and individuals like Luis Posada Carriles, have operated with complete impunity from within the United States to attack Cuba—with the knowledge and support of the FBI and CIA."


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The Cuban state agents featured in “The Day Diplomacy Died” were working in Cuba against the so-called “internal opposition” set-up and supported by US diplomats in the US Interests Section in Havana from the very beginning except for a period under the presidency of Jimmy Carter.
The Day Diplomacy Died

When the book “The Dissidents” was published in Havana Bernie set to work on her documentary.

The Dissidents were eight of the best of the best of the Cuban revolution, Cuban State Security agents who were prosecution witnesses at the 2003 Havana trials who blew their cover as counterparts of the Cuban Five.

The former Cuban state agents infiltrated various groups that were working under the direct influence of diplomatic staff at the US Interests Section office in Havana specifically to stop US terrorist groups.

In a lot of cases people didn’t really understand the situation because of the way Cuba is presented in the foreign media but after some explanation they began to realize the role the US diplomatic staff was playing in interfering in Cuba’s internal
It also helps to explain the history of US involvement in trying to bring an end to the Cuban Revolution.
The Cuban agents charged with conspiracy to spy are Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González. (René González was released on Oct. 7, 2011).

When Raul addressed the Cuban national assembly in Havana on Monday regarding asylum for Edward Snowden he said he could not. Later he would explain that Snowden had become diplomatically toxic.

In his speech, the 82-year-old Cuban leader said his country was aware of the kind of secretive NSA programs Snowden revealed. He said that as a longtime enemy of Washington, the Caribbean nation has been ‘‘one of the most harassed and spied-upon nations on the planet.’’
Bernie Dwyer's documentary is the story behind the lock up of 75 “independent” journalists, trade unionists, and librarians in Cuba in 2003 through the eyes of four ex-Cuban state agents working undercover.
The mainstream media never fully investigates the role played by the US diplomats in Cuba in controlling the “dissidents” movement.
