"Cuba Si, the Five are Free..."
...and the blockade is fading
December 22nd, 2014
Featured Guest: KEITH ELLIS
Keith Ellis, Canadian/Jamaican poet and scholar, summarizes the long and violent history of U.S. efforts to destroy the Cuban revolution. The mission of the Cuban Five was to stop terrorism against Cuba. They did not harm America in any way, yet they were subject to draconian sentences.
Dr. Ellis praises the unifying role of ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America) and especially CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States). These organizations created a unity that INCLUDES Cuba and a unity that US has not been able to penetrate.
Ellis contrasted the great humanitarian work of the Cubans, esp. their medical doctors who are at the forefront in Africa fighting Ebola, to the U.S. pursuit of militarism and torture.
The Five served a valid humanitarian cause

Featured Guest: KEITH BOLENDER
Keith Bolender fills in the spaces re the huge surprise release of the last three of the Cuban Five. Secret negotiations took place over the last 18 months between Obama and Raul Castro. Both Canada and Pope Francis worked behind the scenes facilitating the negotiations to free the Cuban Five via a prisoner exchange releasing Rolando Sarraff Trujillo, a Cuban who became a CIA agent working inside Cuban intelligence agency.
Bolender also analyzes Obama's statements to end the blockade against Cuba --including what powers Obama has and does not have. Bolender clarifies that America's strategy against Cuba has not changed, just its policy. Obama is using the stick and carrot approach.
Bolender describes the US history of terrorism against Cuba and how this terrorism led the Cuban Five to accept their mission against terror. The Five infiltrated the Cuban American terrorist groups, learned about planned terrorists attacks against Cuba and reported back to Cuba, so Cuba could stop the attacks and save hundreds of human lives.
