Obama sänder kondoleanser till diktatorns familj

Obama Offers “Condolences” to Castro’s Family, White House Dossier

President Obama Saturday issued a written statement on the death of Fidel Castro that failed to condemn any of the former Cuban leader’s brutality toward his people and that offered condolences to Castro’s family.

Whether because he has some sympathy for Castro or just because he wants to preserve the peace initiative that is helping prop up the Communist regime, Obama skirted Castro’s uncountable crimes against humanity, stating with sordid euphemism that Castro had “altered” people’s lives and leaving it to “history” to judge him.

“We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation,” Obama said. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him . . . Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.”

Let’s be clear about who Castro’s family is. It is comprised of an elite in Cuba who have lived the high life at the expense of the Cuban people, and others who fled the island and who hate Fidel. So there is no one to offer condolences to.

Obama’s ideology and obsession with his fading legacy has caused him to ignore the barbarity of one of the world’s worst dictators, who inflicted his tyranny not only on his own people but sought to spread it throughout Latin America and even beyond. Obama’s statement is a moral outrage. Actually, it is immoral. From a man who attempts to preach to the rest of us day after day.

Here’s the statement in full:

At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.

For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements. During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity. This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.

Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future. As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.
