On Tuesday afternoon, the Associated Press tweeted out that the White House confirms that Barack Hussein Obama is going to be removing Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
According to the AP:
Obama made the final decision following a State Department review of Cuba’s presence on the list. The terror designation has been a stain on Cuba’s pride and a major stumbling block for efforts to mend ties between Washington and Havana.
In a message to Congress, Obama said the government of Cuba “has not provided any support for international terrorism” over the last six months. He also told lawmakers that Cuba “has provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future.”
Tuesday’s announcement comes days after Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro met on the sidelines of a regional summit in Panama. The talks marked the first formal meeting between the leaders of their countries in a half-century.
BREAKING: White House: Obama to remove Cuba from list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Now, two countries that have been historically enemies of America, Cuba and Iran, are being treated as long-lost brothers. How convenient as we continue down the road of normalizing relations with countries that have our destruction in mind.
Cuba’s designation as a state sponsor of terror was made in 1982 because of efforts “to promote armed revolution by organizations that used terrorism.”
They were also part of the instigators during the time of John F. Kennedy when the world moved the closest it had ever been to a world scale nuclear war as the US confronted the Soviet Union over deploying ballistic missiles to Cuba.
White House Press Secretary said, “Our concerns over a wide range of Cuba’s policies and actions fall outside the criteria that is relevant to whether to rescind Cuba’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism.”
Of course, this administration has been whitewashing all sorts of terror organizations. The largest designated terror group in the united States is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). They are a Muslim Brotherhood front group that was designated last year by the United Arab Emirates as a terror organization.
Just last month, the Obama administration omitted Iran and Hezbollah from the US’ terror list in its annual report of the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Communities.
Only three countries remain on the US list of nations who are accused of repeatedly supporting global terror. Those are Iran, Sudan and Syria.
