ALLEN WEST: The absolutely INANE reason Cuba was taken off the terror list

by Allen West

Let me clearly state that the pure definition of insanity is to continue to do the same thing and expect different results. Furthermore, the true definition of a failed and weak foreign policy is to reward an adversary for its belligerence.

I just have to ask, what has changed about Cuba under the ruthless rule of Raul Castro? Have any imprisoned political prisoners been released? How about those terrorists and criminals from America who have asylum — have they been repatriated to our shores to face justice?


Of course not. But nonetheless, President Obama wants to take Cuba off the terror list – for good behavior.

“In his letter to Congress, Obama wrote that the Cuban government “has not provided any support for international terrorism” in the past six months, and has “provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future.”

SIX months. Cuba has not provided any support to international terrorism since last year November – that’s it. You know, yesterday was Tax Day. What if we’d gone some 32 years without paying any taxes and then all of a sudden, we went six full months of paying taxes — ya think the federal government would take us off the hit list?

Oops, maybe if you’re Al Sharpton you can go as long as you want without paying taxes. But Cuba supposedly hasn’t supported international terrorism for six months, and that’s good enough for the Obama administration to trust them.

Except that just yesterday FARC leftist guerillas, “a terror group long fostered by Cuba — even today, the Castro brothers are harboring several wanted members of the group — murdered 10 Colombian soldiers and wounded 17 others in a terror attack on a military base.” But we’ll just let that one slide.

Jeepers, we look abjectly incompetent as a nation.
