C'est le fromage du U.N.

So here is a U.N. envoy, a "special" envoy expressing "alarm" for the conditions and deplorable "treatment in Cuban jails." So far so good. But whose fault is it? The dictator for life? NO! It's the "U.S. economic embargo" that's who. Is this from first hand knowledge?...also a rotund NO! Christine Chanet has not set foot on the island, because she has not been allowed. It is great that Ms. Chanet is calling attention to the treatment of Cuban prisioners, and maybe this applies a little bit of pressure, but I think she is facing the wrong way.

Read the story here.
