Cuba “Experts” on Alan Gross (from over three years ago, that is)

aaaawsefid1raul5

"Phil Peters, a Cuban analyst at the Lexington Institute, said Gross could face a quick trial, which would allow the Cuban government to present its case, and perhaps allow for a "political solution."

"Wayne Smith, the former U.S. diplomat, says he expects Cuba to "do the right thing" and release Gross after the trial."

"Phil Peters, a longtime Cuba expert who is vice president of the Arlington, Virginia-based Lexington Institute, said he too saw Cuba freeing Gross soon."

"The odds are the guy is going to get convicted, that's not hard to predict," said Peters. "But I don't believe that the Cuban government has an interest in holding him in jail for the long term."

(All the above from March, 2011)

In what other field of "professional" human endeavor could people so consistently and grotesquely wrong keep their professional shingles hanging?

The Miami Herald, for instance, besought Phil Peters for some of his famous expertise just last week!

  • What can you say about a dreg of a life form that lives off the blood of the oppressed? Pond scum is more evolved.

    The Miami Herald has been so dubious for so long regarding Cuba that it's like a tired old joke. At best, it's a case of "una de cal y otra de arena," and I don't play that game, let alone pay for it. I wouldn't take Herald, in either language, if it was delivered to my house for free. Unfortunately, there are still Cubans who actually buy the damn rag, which is like paying someone to laugh at you and dump feces on your lawn. It's pretty pathetic, but then again, Cubans are not exactly the last word on dignity.
