How Can You Fight for Freedom -- Playing GTA and Eating Truffles?

Money that was supposed to inspire democracy in Cuba inspired fraud and waste among those spending it.

The Government Accountability Office has found $74 million in contracts spent on things like:

  • A chainsaw
  • Sony PlayStations
  • Nintendo Game Boys
  • A mountain bike
  • Leather coats
  • Sashmere sweaters
  • Godiva chocolates
All those items purchased by Accion Democratica Cubana -- which is supposed to provide humanitarian help to Cuban dissidents. (WaPo)
