Heritage Foundation Latin America experts Ana Quintana and Mike Gonzalez submitted questions to the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere with the goal of highlighting the Obama administration’s hypocrisy on Cuba.
Well, their pointed questions worked: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) got the State Department to admit that U.S. travel to Cuba will bolster the Castro regime because the Cuban military owns the hotels and much of the tourism industry.
Check out Quintana’s tweet below:

There were two other bombshell announcements that came out of the hearing too:
- The Obama administration will not confirm whether it will continue supporting human rights in Cuba
- The State Department’s top western hemisphere diplomat had no part in creating the new Cuba policy, which was negotiated directly by the White House
What do you think of the Obama administration’s radical Cuba policy?
