Elian Gonzalez, the kid found in the ocean and sent back to Cuba, was there too. He must be a young adult by now!
And Raul Castro closed the event with a speech:
"It was a week of triumph for Raul Castro.
First, I'm sure that Raul Castro knows a thing or two about issuing unilateral executive orders!
Second, the Castro regime did order the shooting down of a plane over international waters in February 1996. It killed for 4 Cuban Americans, or US citizens. I would call that terror. It was one of the big reasons that those men were sitting in one of our prisons.
Third, we learned that the Cuban government will not send back fugitives from US law, such as the lady who killed a police officer in Philadelphia. They call it 'asylum"!
This speech was "in your face" Obama. It confirmed that the Castro regime has no plans to change. He is still that same dictator after all these years.
The Obama White House can not be happy. However, this is what happens when you "coddle dictators". They show you no respect even after you've thrown them a lifeline.
