[Ed. – Not the first time this has been reported, but certainly from one of the most knowledgeable sources.  An interestingly specific number, and higher than what I’ve seen before.  But credible, given the “mission” and the history of similar Cuban forces in places like Nicaragua and Angola.]

A retired Venezuelan general revealed that the socialist government has hired nearly 93,000 Cubans to import Fidel Castro’s ill-fated communism experiment, a testament to Cuba’s massive intervention in the South American country.

Thousands of Cubans hold key positions in various Venezuelan government sectors, particularly in the national security and intelligence services used to monitor politicians, opposition members, business executives, and the population as a whole to keep the socialist regime in power, noted retired Maj. Gen. Antonio Rivero. Rivero has been an outspoken critic of the so-called Bolivarian revolution.

“By 2010, there was a permanent presence of approximately 92,700 Cubans carrying various missions in all areas and sectors of the [socialist] government,” declared Rivero during a discussion Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol hosted by the human rights group Justice Cuba.
