State-run media say a Cuban court has found U.S. contractor Alan Gross guilty of crimes against the state and sentenced him to 15 years in prison.We have a decrepit regime on its last legs in Havana, Obama has eased sanctions on them and opened more travel there, and this is the thanks we get.
The court found that the 61-year-old Gross was working on a "subversive" program, paid for by the United States. The report was read out on the afternoon news. The Maryland native was arrested in December 2009 while working on a USAID backed project that aims to build democracy on the communist-run island.
I hope someone informs Obama while he plays the back nine.
Update: I was just joking about that back nine comment. Yet sure enough, Obama's out golfing.
President Obama just could not wait for spring weather to arrive.Don't strain yourself, champ, I'm sure you've got plenty of hoops to watch tonight.
For the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.
Even as his administration and the U.S. military help Japan recover from a devastating earthquake, and as the world worries about Fukushima's nuclear reactor, the president could not resist taking advantage of the 48-degree weather in the Washington, D.C., area.
