The Cuban journalist Luis Baez presented his work in Argentine in the International Book Festival from Buenos Aires
Báez revealed that the volume, published by Prensa Latina, offers a lot of information about the more than 600 attacks planned by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from the United States against Fidel Castro from the beginning of the Cuban Revolution.

He explained that his book is supported by real events, which are "irrefutable proofs by themselves that in the case of the secret war of the CIA against Cuba, the actions go beyond imagination, the incredible things might reach the point of being true, the unbelievable things might become true and the truth might turn out to be incredible."

According to the writer, he tried to "show the current generations how for more than four decades, ten United States administrations have made everything within their reach and even the impossible to kill the revolutionary process."

The man, who is also the author of Secretos de Generales (Secrets of Generals) and Los disidentes (Dissidents) inserts a report on the preparations for the mercenary invasion in Bay of Pigs, in April 1962 and their quick defeat.

He also presents a work named Doble juego (Double game) which reveals the ins and outs of how Cuban counter-intelligence entered into one of the CIA networks.

Báez said that among the interviews there are six Cubans who worked for the CIA, among them Leopoldina Grau Alsina (Polita), to whom that organization sent during the first few months of the revolutionary triumph capsules with cyanide to poison Fidel Castro.

He explained that all the conversations were recorded under the consent of each and every one of them and five of them asked for their identities not to be revealed for some time.

"Terrorists have no homeland, but truth does," declared the experienced journalist.

In the same room and before the presentation of the book El mérito es estar vivo, Nirma Acosta, director of the Cuban magazine La Jiribilla, gave a master conference called Surgimiento y alcance de Internet como herramienta para la comunicación (Appearance and reach of the Internet as a tool for communication).

Acosta insisted on prioritizing the presence of the Cuban Revolution in the global network as well as in the existence of efficient ways to communicate true things about and from the island.
