Paging Michael Moore: Cuba Won't Let Boxing Team Travel to U.S. for Fear of Defections
And yet . . .
According to AP: Defection fears to keep Cuban boxers at home
Cuba won't send a boxing team to the world championships in Chicago, heeding Fidel Castro's fears about future defections after two fighters abandoned their teammates during the Pan American Games.
"We will not expose anew a Cuban boxing team to the abuses and provocations that in this case will be present in Chicago, American territory, the perfect location for marketers and traffickers to act freely and with the total complicity of U.S. authorities," the Cuban Boxing Federation said Wednesday."Abuses and provocations." Commie-speak for the lure of freedom and opportunity.
Wonder how the MSM will explain this one away?
