Of course Ayers thinks Obama's decision to establish diplomatic relations with this state sponsor of terror is the bomb, as he writes in his blog:
VIVA CUBA! Hands Off Assata Shakur!And just who is Assata Shakur? The onetime JoAnne Byron Chesimard, a member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted of murder for her role in the murder of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster. Shakur was the first woman named to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorist List. Cuba granted Shakur political asylum in 1984.
Cuba es en mi corazon! [Cuba is in my heart!]
I’m astonished and relieved and moved.
It's terrific when imperial arrogance is pushed back.
A victory in the name of patience, irony, hope and struggle.
And a long time coming.
(see my Facebook re: Assata Shakur
New Jersey wants Cuba to cough up Skakur. If the Castro brothers do that, then that will be the one upside I can identify in regards to Obama's reaching out to the totalitarian state.
Oh, if you must see it, here is Ayers' Facebook page.
The FBI is awarding a $1 million award for her capture, as is the New Jersey State Police.
