Will Senator McCaskill Visit Cuban Dissident Nearly Beaten to Death?

Saturday, February 14, 2015
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) is headed to Cuba this weekend to explore "trade opportunities."

In other words, she's going to visit Castro's dictatorship, which maintains a monopoly over all foreign trade with the island.

But perhaps Senator McCaskill can take some time from her concocted itinerary to visit the victims of her tyrannical hosts.

She should take a few minutes to visit with Rolando Diaz Silva (below), of the Movement for a New Republic, who was nearly beaten to death this week.

He surely needs international solidarity.

Or with the half-dozen dissidents from The Ladies in White and other groups, who were arrested for seeking medical assistance for Diaz Silva.

We know, we know...

Diaz Silva and these dissidents, along with 99.99% of other Cubans, aren't allowed (by Castro's regime) to buy agricultural products from Missouri.

Plus they are not the focus of Obama's new rapprochement with Cuba's dictatorship.

But they matter too.
