Florida Times-Union Editorial: Obama Should Take Back Some Cuba Initiatives

Tuesday, September 6, 2016
From The Florida Times-Union's Editorial Board:

Human Rights in Cuba

Human rights in Cuba are getting worse since President Barack Obama opened the diplomatic doors.

The Cuban dictatorship is cracking down “with renewed brutality,” reports Mary Anastasia O’Grady in The Wall Street Journal.

Hunger strikes are now being conducted by desperate freedom fighters.

The Ladies in White, those brave women who march for freedom, continue to be beaten, kicked and pelted with stones on their way to Mass.

All of this is taking place just months after Obama visited Cuba and lavished the totalitarian regime with diplomatic initiatives.

Obama should use a carrot and stick approach and take back some of his initiatives until the Cuban people see some relief.
