Quote of the day – Temptation

In Havana Note, Cuban dictatorship apologist and "Cuba Expert" Anya Landau French explains why she thinks American fugitive Edward Snowden may have removed Cuba as one of his Tyranny Tour destinations:

"My guess is that the message somehow got to Snowden that if he traveled through Cuba he would be detained and possibly even returned to the United States (I suppose an immediate return wouldn't be certain; he would be the highest value fugitive to pass through in quite some time, for sure, and I imagine the Cubans might be tempted to consider whether they could trade him for one or all of their remaining Cuban Five. But such a strategy might backfire, of course)."

    Anya needs to retire this photo and replace it with one less cringeworthy. I think it makes her look too much like what she is.
