Remember last summers Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba and those computers that were confiscated by U.S. agents? Remember how confident they were that the computers would be returned?
Were you wondering what happened to those computers?
Me too, so I called Ellen Bernstein here at Pastors for Peace and asked her.
Good news, to date their lawyer has been unable to obtain the computers release, in spite of weekly vigils by the “Caravanistas”, the petitioning, the phone calls, and all those press releases dutifully published by the MSM.
Ellen informed me that in response to their inquiries are they are told it’s in the hands of this office or that office, she gets the impression they are stalling, when clearly the holdup is because of Bush’s crackdown on Cuba, part of his get tough policy.
The group is preparing to move into the next faze of this campaign which will focus on getting their congressional supporters to apply more pressure. Two elected officials from out here on the left coast she suggested I contact are …surprise, surprise, Diane Watson and Maxine Waters.
Please support the Bush Administrations stand against these castro supporting anti-American communists.
