The Cuban American National Foundation endorses Barack Obama. Given the Foundation’s long record under its founder, Jorge Mas Canosa, of successful terrorist activity in the U.S. and its support for anti-Castro terrorist acts (including the murders of Ronni Moffit and Orlando Letelier and the mid-air destruction of a Cuban airliner in 1976) I can’t say this makes my heart leap with joy. We can only hope that the new leadership, under Mas Canosa’s son Jorge Mas Santos, has decided to take a new tack.
In any case, this is a straw in the wind. CANF doesn’t back many losers.
