On this day in history

Americans reading the headlines on Tuesday, July 1, 1958, came across this:

Cuban rebels struck again today in their bold campaign of kidnapping Americans and other foreigners, seizing two plant officials in eastern Cuba. The new stroke was announced by the US Embassy as the US Consul negotiated with the rebels in the mountains for the release of 39 other kidnapped Americans and 2 Canadians.

Just like FARC and other terrorists organizations, the castro revolution used this tactic regularly. They even kidnapped the famous Argentine race car driver, Juan Manuel Fangio. But they still want us to believe that the castro revolution was and is a benevolent revolution.

Benevolent terrorists–what a concept.
