House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just concluded her Congressional delegation to Cuba.
There were plenty of meetings with Castro regime officials.
But U.S. officials have confirmed that Pelosi and her delegation did not meet with any Cuban dissidents.
Because they were blackmailed by Castro's regime -- a new constant in the Obama-Pelosi policy towards Cuba.
Last month, a delegation led by U.S. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) met with a group of dissidents. In response to this encounter, the Castro regime cancelled all subsequent meetings with its officials, including dictator Raul Castro himself.
To ensure such dissident meetings did not become a constant, the Castro regime threatened to put a halt to all Congressional delegations visiting the island -- including Pelosi's.
The condition for these Congressional trips to resume was that they don't meet with dissidents -- and Pelosi happily complied.
Last weekend's delegation, composed of U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Mark Warner (D-VA), also happily complied.
Further evidence that Obama-Pelosi's new Cuba policy has relegated freedom, democracy and human rights to Castro's whim.
