White House defends 'Cuban Twitter' to stir unrest

5 of 12

As he walks to a closed-door security briefing, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., comments on the creation of a secret “Cuban Twitter" — a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, Thursday, April 3, 2014, on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Obama administration project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba's stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them toward dissent. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
