U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona has just presented and subsequently withdrawn his amendment to eliminate Radio and TV Marti.
Flake filed the amendment earlier this week to the FY 2011 Continuing Resolution.
This is a clear indication of current Congressional opposition to any unilateral changes to Cuba policy.
Furthermore, it reaffirms that such policy changes would send an adverse message amidst the current tide of democracy movements -- from Egypt to Iran.
