The irony of Cuba on the US list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The irony is just too much to pass up though I haven’t posted here for quite some time now.  The US just announced that flights originating from 14 nations will face heavier security at airports in order to increase terrorist screening efforts.  I won’t mention here how obviously idiotic it is to announce what your plans are in the open so that your enemies can know how to circumvent those efforts.  My purpose is not to critique US security tactics.  However, I would like to mention that Cuba was mentioned as one of those 14 nations.

This understandably raised hackles in Havana.  Obama seems determined to carry out the same old tired policy towards Cuba that his right-wing predecessors have.

The irony comes from information that most US citizens don’t know and that is the fact that the US harbors self-professed anti-Cuban terrorists with impunity.  One of the most famous is Jose Luis Posada Carriles who blew up a Cuban airliner, killing 73 people including the entire Cuban national fencing team.

Secret combinations continue to rule the US no matter who the figure-head is.
