Who but the Castros could proudly answer the proverbial “gotcha!” question without the slightest snicker or cough behind the hand by “international opinion.”
The Castro regime just proudly announced that it proudly stopped money laundering for Al Qaeda, or something pretty close. Capitol Hill Cubans has the story, and asks the proper “gotcha!” questions:
Is Al-Qaeda Laundering Funds Through Cuba?
Yesterday, the Castro regime decreed that it would now begin to freeze bank assets affiliated to Al-Qaeda in Cuba.
That raises important questions:
What took it so long?
Is this a tacit admission that it has been facilitating terrorist financing all along?
Has Al-Qaeda been laundering funds through Cuba’s secretive banking system for the last two decades?
What about other terrorist groups?
Hadn’t “experts” assured us that Castro had long given up these activities?
Where’s the oversight?
Why should we trust Castro’s regime now, let alone it’s non-transparency?
