The investigations by Farrar and his wife came in August 2008, when he wrote a memorandum to the State Department, described as sensitive, without reporting obstacles from the authorities of the Caribbean nation.
The diplomat recommended the White House provide programs to violate rules set by local network suppliers, denounced the www.cubasi.cu site on Saturday, reproduced on the www.cubadebate.cu. webpage.
"The USIS (U.S. Interests Section) warmly welcomes all contributions that come from Washington, where they continue to work to develop programs to avoid internet filters," he wrote in his final remarks.
He also announced that were seeking to improve local conditions on the Internet and analyze operations for the possible use of websites and in our range of action, he added.
The text entitled "Surfing the Net in Havana" described visits to several access points to the network, including several hotels to check if the sites of some of the organizations benefiting from the United States were available.
Farrar reported the inability to access web pages of old and present organizations receiving U.S. government money for the Cuba Program with the goal of changing the political system in the Caribbean nation.
Among the blocked sites he mentioned the Cuban Democratic Directorate, the Cuban Center for a Free Cuba or the Support Group for Dissidence, all members of subversive projects against Havana. He acknowledged that could enter websites of NGOs that deal with human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.
"Furthermore, you can download the entire report HRW 2007 if you are patient and wait twenty minutes," said the report.
You can also browse without any restriction on the website of the USIS, the State Department, the United Nations (UN) and even read media outlets like The Washington Post and The New York Times, it added.
The Cubasi article recalled that last March the Cuban courts sentenced a U.S. citizen Alan Gross to fifteen years in prison for the crime of acts against the independence or territorial integrity of the state.
The conviction came after Gross was found to have been directly involved in a subversive U.S. project to try to destroy the Revolution with the use of info-communications systems outside the control of the authorities. (PL)
