While Senator John Edwards served on the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, a Cuban agent was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and dodged their fate only with a plea-bargain. This spy managed the deepest penetration of the U.S. Department of Defense in U.S. history in what is described as the “most damaging espionage case since the end of the Cold War” (emphasis added). Her name is Ana Montes and she worked for Fidel Castro.
Somewhere amongst all of the coverage, activities and responsibilities above, a man running for president of the United States should have inferred that Cuba is Communist, or so you’d like to think. So let’s review his comment: “I don’t know a lot about Cuba’s healthcare system. Is it a government-run system?”
John Edwards was born in 1953. He probably went through those school drills during the Cuban Missile Crisis in which we all scurried under our desks. But shortly after admitting his ignorance regarding Communist Cuba’s healthcare, Edwards hailed Michael Moore’s infomercial for Fidel Castro titled “Sicko” as “a great movie” (as captured here on YouTube).
Fidel Castro himself shares Edwards’ admiration for the rotund filmmaker, esteeming Michael Moore as an “outstanding American” and regaling his subjects with Moore’s films in crumbling theatres throughout his Stalinist fiefdom.
So, just think of the sparkling material writers for John Stewart, Colbert, Maher, Letterman, SNL, etc. etc. etc. passed up for one teeny little detail: John Edwards is a Democrat.
