“Panamanian authorities on Saturday (May, 18, 2019) intercepted 46 suitcases containing an estimated $90 million in illegal drugs on a cargo ship that arrived from a Cuban port and was en route to Istanbul, Turkey. The suitcases contained 1,517 packages of drugs hidden in a container declared as containing charcoal.”
Needless to add: no mainstream U.S. media portal (not even FOX!) has reported on this BLOCKBUSTER embarrassment to the Obama team.)
Not content with merely hailing and embracing The Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (habitually mislabeled as “Cuba” by the Fake News Media) as noble partners in our war against drug-smuggling!–Obama (presumably with Brennan’s sign-off) gave Castro’s KGB-trained apparatchiks an intimate tour of the U.S. Southern Command’s Command Center against Drugs!

Not to be outdone, the (Deep) State Department warmly commended the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate for their anti-Drug-smuggling accomplishments: “Cuba has kept drug trafficking, in check— Although Cuba sits in close proximity to Caribbean drug lanes and the U.S. market, the U.S. State Department’s annual narcotics control report found that (Cuba) is not a major consumer, producer or transit point for illegal narcotics…Cuba and the United States have begun to work more closely on combating the drug trade. A new U.S.-Cuba drug accord was signed in July 2016, and there is a U.S. Coast Guard liaison in the U.S. Embassy in Havana to coordinate with Cuban law enforcement. Direct communications between the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Cuba’s National Anti-Drug Directorate began in July.”
