This week, former CIA analyst and Senate staffer Fulton Armstrong articulated his infamous disdain for Cuba pro-democracy programs -- and defense of "regime preservation" -- in The Miami Herald.
As expected, Armstrong's editorial was gleefully translated and reprinted in its entirety by Castro's state media.
Throughout the years, we've grown accustomed to Armstrong's attacks on pro-democracy programs, including the exaggerations and untruths he sprinkles throughout.
However, in his zeal to attack these programs, Armstrong seems to have crossed a very concerning line:
First, he provides the Castro regime fodder -- regardless of its veracity -- to continue arresting peaceful opponents and trumping up charges.
Secondly, he appears to be revealing sensitive information on government programs and procedures without prior authorization.
The first is cruel and irresponsible.
The second is potentially illegal.
