Czech this out

Is it any surprise when a country that once wore the noose of communism is a friend to those seeking freedom from Castro? The Czech Republic is taking in three Cuban families who escaped from Castro’s hell but didn’t quite make it to dry land in the U.S.:

The Czech government, which is known for its support of Cuba’s opposition movement, agreed to grant asylum to the families at the request of the United States. Identities of the refugees were not revealed to prevent persecution of their relatives still living on the island.

A small number of Cuban citizens are generally given shelter at the remote U.S. Navy base (my note: this refers to Guantanamo) as a first step to being given asylum at a country other than the United States, under a U.S. policy known as “wet-foot, dry-foot.”

Thank God for the Czech Republic.
