Silvia Wilheim of La Noche Se Mueve, 1210 AM in Miami, scored an interesting radio interview with former State Department Chief of Staff and Pamela Harriman Visiting Scholar at the College of William & Mary Lawrence B. Wilkerson.
You have to work through a bilingual discussion with Wilkerson in English and then translation — but it’s an excellent summary of why our current posture towards Cuba is badly in need of a makeover.
To listen, click on “Jueves” for Thursday.
I really like Wilheim’s radio series titled “In the Best Interests of the United States.”
I hope some of Hillary Clinton’s folks listen in. I know that Chris Dodd’s, Dennis Kucinich’s, Bill Richardson’s, and Barack Obama’s have not only listened in — but subscribe to the line.
For those wanting more, Lawrence Wilkerson, former Senator George McGovern, former Cuban-American National Foundation Executive Director Joe Garcia, former Ambassadorial-Equivalent to Cuba (i.e. Chief of the US Interests Section in Havana), former Reagan and Bush administration State Department official Phil Peters, US- Cuba Legal Forum President Tony Zamora, and many others including myself will be speaking at a conference titled “Imperatives for a New Cuba Policy” on Tuesday, 16 October (next week). Attendance is free and open to the public. RSVP information is here.
