Wow, I’m pleasantly surprised. The San Francisco Chronicle actually published an article today with the title Cuban doctors defect from Venezuela posts. I’m shocked they’d admit that.
Of course, the piece doesn’t come without the typical Castro apologia about “free healthcare,” but they also mentioned this:
Cuban doctors are not permitted to talk to foreign journalists or diplomats. They must seek permission to travel outside of their assigned municipalities, and doctors who have defected say Cuban and Venezuelan intelligence operatives kept close tabs on their whereabouts.
So yeah, I’m suprised. But glad that the people on the left coast will get a chance, albeit a small one, to see what Castro is all about.
