When I read yesterday that both President Obama and Cuba’s murderous dictator Raul Castro were both going to be speaking at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in South Africa, I knew the odds were Obama would end up greeting and shaking the blood-stained hand of the Cuban despot. I had hoped against hope (no pun intended) that Obama would somehow find the courage to fend off his proclivity to act submissive before other world leaders, especially the most despotic ones, but apparently, he simply could not resist. Once again, Obama lends credence and recognition to a vile and bloody dictatorial regime responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of innocent people.
I do not know if there is enough soap or hand sanitizer in the world to wash off the blood Castro left on Obama’s hand.
More stomach-turning photographs and video HERE.
Punto Cuba has another photograph of this (yet another) disappointing encounter by our president with a tyrannical dictator:
