An Idiot Abroad: Free the 5 and Fidel my old friend
During a press conference today, which came at the conclusion of his trip to communist Cuba, America's own traveling idiot, Jimmy Carter, lived up (or down) to his reputation of being an idiot and an insensitive dolt. Bypassing ancillary issues such as the lack of freedom on the island and the enslavement of 11-million Cubans, Carter instead demanded that the U.S. release the Cuban 5. Those are the same five convicted Cuban spies who are serving prison time for espionage and the murder of four innocent American pilots who were shot down over international waters by Castro MiGs.
Although he had claimed it was not the intention of his visit to the country, Jimmy Carter also asked for the release of the American aid worker Alan Gross, who has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for subversion. The former president also demanded the release of the five Cuban agents sentenced years ago in the U.S. for espionage.
And if anyone is still doubting Carter's idiot credentials, we have this from the AP:
In addition to meeting Gross, Carter also sat down Wednesday with Cuban revolutionary icon Fidel Castro, a day after holding talks with President Raul Castro.
“We welcomed each other as old friends,” Carter said of the meeting with the 84-year-old former Cuban leader.
Mere words cannot describe the disgust I am feeling at this moment.
