Joe McSpedon, a official of the U.S. Agency for International Development, leaves his house on Monday, March 31, 2014, in Washington. McSpedon worked on a USAID project that funded and helped create a "Cuban Twitter," a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The project, dubbed "ZunZuneo," slang for a Cuban hummingbird’s tweet, was publicly launched shortly after the 2009 arrest in Cuba of American contractor Alan Gross. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)
