U.S. intelligence head John Negroponte announced Aug. 18 the creation of a new Central Intelligence Agency mission to oversee intelligence operations in Venezuela and Cuba at the strategic level. J. Patrick Maher, a 32-year CIA veteran with supervisory experience in Colombia and the Caribbean, was named as acting mission manager.
According to Negroponte, “Policymakers have increasingly focused on the challenges that Cuba and Venezuela pose to American foreign policy.” He noted Washington’s concern about the close ties between the two countries and failure on Venezuela’s part to cooperate with Washington’s “anti-terrorist campaign.”
