Hypocrisy on Cuba - By Roland S. Martin CNN

Commentary: Let's end our hypocrisy on Cuba
By Roland S. Martin - CNN

"In his book "Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq," Stephen Kinzer writes writes that after the U.S. helped Cuba run Spain out of the country in 1898, President Theodore Roosevelt got the bright idea that we should be the country's new ruler, which led to a battle between the Cuban people, resulting in U.S. troops occupying the country and American business interests controlling nearly all of the economic bright spots in the nation, especially the sugar plantations".
