Why the virtual media black-out on Biscet’s suffering which took place 90 miles from our shores? Anti-communist human-rights activist Oscar Biscet was jailed and tortured by a Stalinist, terror-sponsoring regime that craved to nuke us, after a closed, kangaroo trial. His “crime” was peaceful protest.
All this took place 90 miles from U.S. shores in a locale absolutely lousy with international press bureaus and their intrepid “investigative reporters.” From CNN to NBC, from Reuters to the AP, from ABC to NPR to CBS, Castro welcomes all of these to “embed” and “report” from his fiefdom.
This fiefdom, by the way, is responsible for the jailing and torture of the most political prisoners (many black) per-capita of any regime in the modern history of the Western hemisphere, more in fact than Stalin’s at the height of the Great Terror. But from the media all we learn is that it provides “free and fabulous healthcare” while bravely suffering a “cruel” and “archaic” embargo by a superpower.
Nelson Mandela, on the other hand, was convicted by the independent judiciary of a U.S. ally after a trial perfectly open to international observers. His crime was terrorism.
Can I venture to guess, dear readers, which one of these black political prisoners you have heard most about in the U.S. media?
