Alan Gross, the so-called U.S. "contractor" who went to Cuba with a tourist visa to distribute telecommunications equipment faces the extremely grave charge of “Actions Against the Independence and Territorial Integrity of the State.”
Even spying and subversion against other countries is being privatized in the United States. Everything is reduced to advancing the interests of a private business. They no longer send the C.I.A. spooks to try to undermine the sovereignty of Cuba. As if that makes their crimes less grievous.
Alan Gross was paid half a million dollars by the company that he works for. He should stand up like a man and face the consequences of his actions.
In the meantime, Hillary Clinton states that "we call on the government of Cuba to release him, and unconditionally allow him to leave Cuba and return to his family," as if nothing has happened. Next, her majesty will probably say that Gross was merely a tourist.
The things that the Yankee imperialists say are laughable. Mr. Gross knew full well what he was doing. He deserves to spend 20 years in Cuban jails. This will deter future fools.
If the imperialists were smart, rather than silly, they would propose an exchange of Mr. Gross for the Cuban Five.
