To Embrace Cuba's Regime, State Department Doesn't Have to Behave Like It

Tuesday, July 21, 2015
It's tough to say which was more repulsive yesterday:

Castro regime officials raising the flag at the Cuban Embassy amid cheers of "Viva Fidel!"?

Or the U.S. State Department telling Rosa Maria Paya, daughter of murdered democracy leader Oswaldo Paya, that if she asked any questions at the press conference with Secretary of State John Kerry and Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, she would be forcefully removed?

Is that the "example" the U.S. seeks to set?

Tweet Translation: [State Department spokesperson John] asks me not to ask any questions today at press conference with John Kerry, or they would use force to remove me.
