I would like to make a few requests of President Obama during his historic excursion to Cuba.
While he’s enjoying the baseball game, can he reverently ask Raúl Castro if the dirt that covers the infield is the identical dirt illegitimately confiscated by his government and used to bury the bodies of many innocent victims deemed treacherous to his revolution.
Can Obama ask Castro how many times he was personally involved in executions and how often did he scream out with disparagement and ultimately in a crescendo demanded they face El Paredon (firing squad).
To forgive and forget without consequence is unacceptable because Cuban lives also matter.
Never miss a local story.
I have great respect for the office of the presidency, but I am irreparably disappointed in the current occupant.
