You Forgot Havana, Mr. President

Wednesday, June 4, 2014
U.S. President Barack Obama delivered some good remarks today during his Freedom Day speech in Warsaw, Poland.

We're glad he mentioned the struggle for freedom in Caracas, but he forgot to mention the overarching struggle for freedom at the root of Venezuela's ills -- in Havana, Cuba.

From President Obama's remarks:

We stand together because we know that the spirit of Warsaw and Budapest and Prague and Berlin stretches to wherever the longing for freedom stirs in human hearts, whether in Minsk or Caracas, or Damascus or Pyongyang. Wherever people are willing to do the hard work of building democracy -- from Tbilisi to Tunis, from Rangoon to Freetown -- they will have a partner in our nations. For in the struggles of these citizens we recall our own struggles. In their faces we see our own. And few see this more clearly than the people of Poland.
