CNN laments the real tragedy taking place in Cuba

Sure, political arrests in Cuba are at a 30-year high and dissidents -- including handicapped individuals, women, and children -- are being brutally and indiscriminately beaten by Castro State Security. The apartheid Castro dictatorship not only continues its 55-year-long reign of terror over the Cuban people, but the repression has been increasing steadily over the past few years.
