“Embargo” debate on CNBC

sumo

And in this corner! Mauricio Claver-Carone
And in this corner! the CATO Institute’s Daniel Griswold

Griswold chants the usual Mantra–which is to say, the one Ana Belen Montes helped draft. And interestingly enough, in his anti-embargo manisfesto proudly posted on CATO, Griswold actually quotes Ana Montes verbatim:

“A 1998 report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency concluded that, “Cuba does not pose a significant military threat to the U.S. or to other countries in the region.”

Does Griswold realize that the author of the report and of the “conclusion” he flaunts serves a 25 year sentence for espionage and escaped the fate of the Rosenbergs only because of a plea bargain?

Irrelevant, probably. As a diehard Libertarian, Griswold will probably claim that Ana Montes committed no crime (in the Libertarian sense of the word), that her prosecution was a totalitarian miscarriage of justice so she should be set free post-haste.

Unreal.

    – Why are the Marxists in Cuba (“Socialismo o Muerte!”) desperately seeking to do business with “los Yanki Imperialistas”?

    – The Marxists cry about the “BLOQUEO”, but what is it about the “yanki” that they are now so desperate to do business witn them?
