Remember the multi-millions awarded to the two families who sued the State of Cuba for killings that took place soon after the Bay of Pigs? The award was paid from Cuban assets frozen by the U.S. in the wake of castro’s confiscation of U.S. property in Cuba.
Cuba has never compensated the U.S. for the stolen property, just like they ‘ve never paid back the billions they borrowed from every country dumb enough to extend them credit. Just like they stole everything from the Cuban people in the name of the revolution. Every single bank account, home, and business, everything became the property of the state by castro’s decree. In Cuba, the stinking state rations everything, food, clothing, shelter, they claim ownership of every single thing; your children, even your brain is the property of fidel–after all the state indoctrinated you, educated you..
Now the shoes on the other foot, and Cuba is squealing like a stuck pig.
The Cuban government accused the United States of robbery after Washington drew money from two Cuban bank accounts to pay compensation to relatives of former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) staff, the Cuban newspaper Granma reported on Wednesday.
Cuba said the U.S. government took more than 170 million U.S. dollars from the accounts of the National Bank of Cuba and the Cuban Telecommunications Company, which were frozen by then U.S. President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
“Neither the U.S. government nor its courts have the authority to hand over funds to terrorist groups or relatives of U.S. citizens involved in attacks against this Island,” said a statement of the Cuban Foreign Ministry which was published by Granma.
Janet Ray Weininger and Dorothy Anderson McCarthy, children of two former CIA agents, received compensation after the U.S. federal courts upheld earlier verdicts against the Cuban government for the “wrongful” killing of their fathers, Thomas Willard Ray and Howard F. Anderson.
Cuba denied the charges, calling them “spurious blackmail.” The Cuban Foreign Ministry said Anderson had been executed for his participation in an operation to smuggle guns to rebels, and Ray died during U.S.-Cuba fighting.
Payback can be a bitch, just imagine if they had to anti-up for every single victim of the 48 year revolution.
