Seriously: President Obama also claimed that the Cuban government had “provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future.”
Check it out:
The White House announced today that Cuba will be removed from the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism, despite its ties to Marxist, jihadist, and other separatist terrorist organizations. The removal of the state sponsor of terror label is believed to be the beginning of diplomatic relations with Cuba that can lead to the potential establishment of a U.S. embassy in Havana.
The Associated Press reports that President Obama stated Cuba “has not provided any support for international terrorism” in six months, despite the presence of almost every senior official of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a Marxist terrorist group, in Havana.
