Playing Castros and Indians

The Castro regime never gives up the chance to parade a visiting “foreign dignitary” for the press when that dignitary is touting the wonderfulness of the Cuban dictatorship and exposing the evils of the U.S. embargo. Apparently, the euphoria of having Florida’s Seminole Indians “Ambassador of Economic Affairs,” Richard Bowers, as an official representative of the tribe on the island badmouthing U.S. policy went straight to their heads. It seems the emotional inebriation got the best of the Castro officials since none of them bothered to do a little research on Bowers. Turns out Bowers is not a representative of the Seminole Indians, and neither does the tribe have any official post titled “Ambassador of Economic Affairs.”
