So, the Holy See, indeed Pope Francis himself, gets involved with the freeing of an American citizen held in Cuba for several years. The citizen, Alan Gross, is released. He returns to these USA. He goes to his attorney’s office. They prepare remarks. Photos are taken and issued by, inter alii, WaPo.
Note the framed photo of the Argentinian-born, Leftist-darling, murdering-thug Che Guevara on the wall.
Another picture, just above the photo of Argentinian-born, Leftist-darling, murdering-thug Guevara, which can be seen in a photo from a different angle in the same office during the same occasion.
Che and brutal dictator, Church-persecutor Fidel playing golf. Isn’t that sweet?
Who has pictures of men like those in such a prominent place in one’s office?
According to American Thinker, newly-freed Gross thanked some people for involvement in his release:
Among them were Jill Zuckman of leftist PR firm SKDKnickerbocker, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), and Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). SKDKnickerbocker also employs former resident Maoist in the Obama White House Anita Dunn and Democrat operative Hilary Rosen.
In his remarks, Gross also said:
I also feel compelled to share with you my utmost respect for and fondness of the people of Cuba. In no way are they responsible for the ordeal to which my family and I have been subjected. To me cubanos, or at least most of them, are incredibly kind, generous and talented. It pains me to see them treated so unjustly as a consequence of two governments’ mutually belligerent policies. Five and a half decades of history show us such belligerence inhibits better judgment. Two wrongs never make a right. I truly hope that we can now get beyond these mutually belligerent policies and I was very happy to hear what the president had to say today. It was particularly cool to be sitting next to the secretary of state as he was hearing about his job description for the next couple of months. In all seriousness, this is a game-changer, which I fully support.
So, instead of saying, “I’m so happy to be back in the freest country in the world!”, he called these USA “belligerent”… three times.
Part of the deal?
Certain people worked really hard to get Alan Gross out into the open and in front of microphones and cameras.
I’ll allow comments, but the moderation queue is ON.
