Eight more airports, billions more for the Castro dictatorship

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection department has approved eight new airports in the U.S. to conduct flights to communist Cuba. The new additions are a direct result of the Obama administration’s recent relaxation of sanctions against the tyrannical and murderous Castro dictatorship.

Boosting the number of airports allowed to host Cuba flights from three to 11, the Obama Administration is creating space for more growth of Cuba travel from the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) added Tampa, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, San Juan, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Atlanta to the list of airports authorized to host Cuba flights, according to Tampa airport officials. Miami, New York and Los Angeles have so far been the only U.S. airports licensed to host Cuba flights, with Miami capturing the bulk of Cuba travel from the United States.

Most of the press is joining the Obama administration, “Cuba Experts,” and the Castro dictatorship’s supporters and lobbyist here in the U.S. in characterizing this move as one that improves the “people-to-people” contacts between the U.S. and Cuba. One online business publication, however, apparently did not get the talking points memo.

International Business Times deviated from the script and said a little more than they were supposed to say. After touching on the predetermined talking points, they went on to state the unspeakable truth about the benefits the Castro regime will enjoy from these changes:

In January 2011, the Obama administration vowed to loosen the travel restrictions on US citizens for traveling to Cuba allowing students and church groups to travel to the communist country, which has been under U.S. economic embargo for almost 48 years.

The new airports permitted to provide flights to Cuba include Tampa, Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, San Juan, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Atlanta.

Earlier, Miami, New York and Los Angeles were the only airports in United states that were allowed to host Cuba flights.

The move is being perceived as a great beginning to support Cuba’s failing economy by providing additional resources.

In one simple sentence, IBTimes boiled it all down to the nitty gritty. I can see the “Cuba Experts” reaching for the bottle of Tums.
