This ordeal tragically sums up the Obama-Castro deal.
Mario Alberto Hernandez Leyva is a Cuban political prisoner -- one of the 53 released in December 2014, as part of the Obama-Castro deal.
Hernandez Leyva was re-arrested in November 2015 for organizing a pot-banging protest ("cacerolazo"). He was handed a new three-year prison sentence for disobedience.
In other words, Raul Castro reneged on his deal with President Obama.
Nonetheless, Obama still traveled to Cuba this past March and didn't say a word about Hernandez Leyva.
Hernandez Leyva has been transferred to various prisons throughout Cuba, where he has conducted hunger strikes to protest his unjust imprisonment.
Most recently, he was transferred from the nefarious Combinado del Este prison to Santa Clara, where we was being held in a punishment cell.
Last week, he was "discretely" transferred once again -- and his whereabouts remain unknown.
Still not a word from the Obama Administration.
