Golly! An incident like this gives rise to hope that Bush may yet turn himself in at The Hague when he's 103.

Sounds like he cut a deal with someone. Wouldn't be surprised if it was someone in the Obama admin.

It's actually Obama that should be facing War Crimes Trial for escalating a war that only has 100 al-qaeda fighters in Afghanistan while he kills 1000's of civilians.

Well being that Cuba has one of the world’s most advanced health care systems that would be foolish.

I think people should comprehend politics before they comment on it. They sound pretty darned inane making comments about things they don’t understand.

I've interviewed Cubans and the only thing they like about Cuban health care is that its free. Which is necessary since 90% of Cubans live on starvation wages and can't even afford to buy Band Aids, which BTW are not available in Cuba. Mothers can't buy simple drug store items such as cough medicine or aspirin. Cuban health care is equivalent to prison health care... but... its free.
Castro did build ONE 350 million dollar modern hospital for "show and tell" to foreign reporters but most Cubans are barred from access to this ONE hospital which is reserved for foreigners and Cuban Communist Party members which membership is limited to 10% of the Cuban population.

You’ve interviewed Cubans you say? How many and what was the nature of these interviews?
