Congress Knew About Hellfire Missile in Cuba, A Year Ago

For background on this matter, read yesterday’s post. Yesterday I was contacted by several Congressional sources who told me that the Obama administration read in several Members and staff, House and Senate, on the incident. No surprise there. With something as serious as losing a missile to a state sponsor of terrorism, the administration is obligated …

Inert US Hellfire Missile Ends Up in Cuba

How did an inert U.S. Hellfire missile, loaded with high-end technology, travel from Europe to, get this, Cuba? According to an unnamed U.S. government official quoted in the Wall Street Journal, mistakes happen. That is unacceptable. That type of thinking is what led to the terrorist attacks of 09/11. The Wall Street Journal reports: an inert U.S. Hellfire …

Even the Clinton Administration Made an “Effort” to enforce U.S. Law, Cuba Sanctions

Huawei: A New Cog in the Cuban Surveillance State?

The company that former CIA Director Michael Hayden says helps Communist China spy on its people, is headed to Havana. The Latin American Herald Tribune China’s Huawei will partner with the Cuban government to sell smartphones in Cuba.

Cuba Regime Must Be Giddy

The Obama Administration continues to flaunt U.S. law on several fronts. Meanwhile Members of Congress in both the House and the Senate, refuse to do anything to stop him and his advisors. Healthcare, the Iran nuclear deal, the environment, and much more. A recently leaked DHS memorandum, if authenticated, shows that administration lawyers were seeking …
