The Cuban Five on Russia Today

There were high hopes that the five Cubans imprisoned in the United States would be released when Obama became President. Their cases are being reviewed and one of them had his sentence reduced from life to 22 years. They have additionally been deprived of family visits. This has been highlighted on Russia Today, a programme which provides news and information overlooked by our own press.
The five Cubans far from conducting terrorism themselves uncovered a group who did have a range of equipment that fitted the bill. They were trying to prevent right wing groups mounting attacks on Cuba. So their incarceration is a highly political act. Instead of the US being grateful for uncovering terrorist plots they arrested the Cubans – a terrorist is only a terrorist if (s)he’s coming for you!
