"What needs to change is Cuba"
President Bush spoke about Cuba at the White House today after receiving former political prisoner Miguel Sigler Amaya and his wife Josefa.In addition to his defense of human rights and his reiteration of his policy intentions, he chided nations that fail to stand up for human rights in Cuba.
He praised Eastern European countries but said nothing about recent human rights statements by Great Britain, France, the Vatican, and the EU.He again spoke in the name of the Cuban people: “When a new day finally dawns for Cubans, they will remember the few brave nations that stood with them, and the many that did not.”
