Another Questionable Move by Obama

Filed under: Barack Obama — loudounlady @ 9:08 pm

Rumors have been circulating that recently elected President Barack Obama will lift the trade/travel barrier the U.S. government currently imposes on Cuba.  A six party delegate was recently visiting a medical school in Cuba when the delegates were invited to meet Fidel Castro.  The meeting, which new official news have been issued on, supposedly discussed an improvement of these relations.  WHAT?

President Barack Obama campaigned on representing freedom and civil liberties in foreign affairs.  However, on taking office this has drastically changed.  News that the United States will lift the 47 year-old barrier on Cuba just tells the country, “Hey don’t worry about the suppression of civil liberties or the killing of thousands of your compatriots,  just wait 50 years and we’ll forgive you.”

I am all for expanding trade, especially with the economy the way it, but not at the cost of ignoring civil rights violations.
