I AM APPALLED by US Representative William Delahunt’s sudden silence on Cuba. It seems like a week doesn’t go by without him either visiting Cuba, praising Cuba’s totalitarian government or excoriating our own government for its handling of the Castro regime. This seems to have stopped after his last visit to the island. For it was only days after his return that Castro began his repressive crackdown on the patriotic dissidents and journalists who dared to speak up against his tyranny.

After mock trials condemned by most human rights groups around the world, scores of dissidents were thrown in jail for terms ranging up to 28 years.

More recently, three boat hijackers were executed within days of their arrest after kangaroo court trials that were condemned by most of the free world.

So where is Delahunt’s sense of outrage at these savage actions?

Or does Castro get a pass on this inhumanity from the congressman?
