Cash & Kerry: Obama admin celebrates reopening of Cuba embassy while Castro demands reparations

John Kerry is in Cuba Friday for the grand re-opening of the U.S. embassy in Havana and to imagine the yacht club possibilities. Here’s a brief summary of where things stand from two points of view…

The Obama administration:


The Castro regime:


U.S. leaders with backbone would tell Fidel to stick it, but the Obama administration might issue an apology and ask Castro if he’s willing to be repaid by being given his own “peace lover’s” wing at the Obama presidential library:

Fidel Castro marked his 89th birthday Thursday by insisting the United States owes Cuba “many millions of dollars” because of the half-century-old American trade embargo.

Castro spoke out in an essay published in local media a day before US Secretary of State John Kerry makes a historic visit to Cuba to reopen the US embassy as part of the countries’ restoration of diplomatic relations.

The trade embargo that the United States slapped on communist Cuba in 1962, three years after Castro seized power by ousting a US-backed regime, remains in effect despite the thaw.

President Barack Obama wants Congress to lift it, although US officials say this will take time and is not an automatic part of the restoration of ties, as it requires congressional action.

Team Obama removed Cuba’s terror state designation because it had been a few months since they sponsored any terrorism — a track record even better than Obama and Kerry’s “deal partner” Iran.
