7:53 pm
all terrorist are treated the same those that are favored by the administration cooperate with impunity inside the united states people who want to partake in violent acts against you are protected you see individuals who are trying to stop those acts of terror is to try to. make all american law enforcement. aware of these activities are the people who end up being prosecuted. the people end up in jail and those who blow up airliners those who blog post tells those who can conduct acts of violence are free the toast of the town because the ministration is paralyzed by their own policy with respect to right to cuba with their own posse with respect to the war on terror which you see is the level of the

7:56 pm
his own foreign policy i didn't do that much so i did what any cuban would do and we need to deal with the cuba of today not the cuba that we left not the cuba that we think is there but it isn't we need to deal with the cuba that exist today. and hopefully before all the future of that cuba and the spanish saying on your own you swim and you swim to die on the shoulder. all we did was to use. the created great they tried and taken some twenty exile community to be honest fifty yards from. where the real terrorists. police found out. they were ready to do anything for their country to me is to love the country more
