Herald Reports on Dissidents' Request

Yesterday I posted about a report by European news agencies on a document signed by four leading Cuban dissidents requesting that the US/Cuba travel restrictions be at least softened.

Today, the Miami Herald has caught on to the story and published was is basically a repeat of the AFP story. Make sure to also check out a copy of the document, in English and Spanish, at the Herald site.

One interesting portion of the document that the Herald excluded from their article and which refers to the lack of control and efficiency of the USAID program:
It is precisely that paragraph which some press media in the United States have utilized to cast doubt on the credibility and integrity of organizations and personalities in exile such as Frank Hernandez Trujillo of the Support Group for Democracy, and Juan Carlos Acosta of Cuban Democratic Action, in a suspicious coincidence with the interests of the Cuban government and its repressive organizations.
Hmmm. As George Michael so succinctly put it back in the 80s, "Guilty feet have got no rhythm" (the first and hopefully last Wham reference on this blog).

I know, I know. I'm embarrassed to admit that George Michael entered my head while posting this.
