Only fools believe that Allan Gross was a US "contractor." He was a covert U.S. agent. And he was also a fool.
He was willing to do what his masters in Washington D.C. told him to do: destabilize the Cuban government in the island by establishing illegal Internet connections inside the Caribbean nation.
He broke Cuban law and he has to suffer the consequences.
The U.S. media continues to blabber the official line of the Yankee imperialists.
Here is what the U.S. media reported today in the Washington Post:
"The former U.S. government contractor said he fears that his country has abandoned him and personally appealed to Barack Obama to intervene in his case."
You are correct Allan. Your POTUS has abandoned you after using you. There is a lesson in this for all of us to learn.
Do not ever trust Barack Obama. He will use you and then discard you. I still get, once a month, letters from him asking for money.
Obama does not want to admit that he made a mistake. His imperial arrogance prevents him from doing that.
The solution: Obama pardons the remaining four of the Cuban Five and Cuba pardons Allan Gross.
