Bolivia Expels USAID

MOSCOW, May 2 (RIA Novosti) – Bolivian President Evo Morales followed the example of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, expelling Wednesday the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from the country.

Morales accused USAID of “manipulating” local public groups in order to destabilize Bolivia, the country’s news agency ABI said.

The expulsion was also a reaction to US Secretary of State John Kerry calling Latin America “the backyard” of the United States, Morales said in a May Day speech.

Kerry made his remark last month at a meeting with US Congressmen, where he argued against cuts to US financial aid to the region.

2. I'm Pretty Sure it's an Open Secret that USAID & CIA are Very Close "Friends"


No, I'm not Alex Jones and I'm not wearing a tinfoil hat. It's not widely known in the US that USAID, run by the State Department, has very close ties to the CIA. Probably lots of CIA operatives working in and for USAID. Russia threw them out last year because they alleged USAID was interfering with domestic affairs. It's not a real surprise they they got thrown out Bolivia much the same thing.
