President Evo Morales expels USAID from country following years of fomenting opposition

Following President Evo Morales' expulsion of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from Bolivia on Wednesday, some analysts are saying the only surprising thing about the news is in how long it took.

Making the announcement at a May Day rally in La Paz, Morales accused the U.S. of conspiring against his government, and said, “Some institutions of the United States Embassy continue to conspire against this process, against the people and especially against the country.”

This is why “We have decided to expel USAID from Bolivia.”

He also called USAID an "instrument that still has a mentality of domination," La Prensa reports.

But USAID's involvement in Bolivia has been questionable for years.

Read the rest here.
Comment: Way to go President Morales.  And not a moment to soon.

More countries should kick out USAID which is just a tool/front for the CIA.
