RCAB News: The U.S. Coast Guard Makes the RCAB a Port of Call


Today we were visited by the uscg.mil (Military), otherwise known as the U.S. Coast Guard. That is the domain name; the ISP belongs to the Department of Transportation, in Washington, D.C. The search words that they googled were: "money paid to Cuban smugglers." The post to which they were referred was Angels Who Smuggle Men to Freedom. We trust they learned something. There is so much for them to learn and unlearn.

I visited the United States Coast Guard webpage, which proudly proclaims "Happy 217th Birthday to the Coast Guard, More than 1,000,000 Lives Saved Since 1790." No mention of how many lives it has not saved or was responsible for ending, or do they just detract that from the number of lives saved? H/T to Bill Clinton and George Bush.


POSTSCRIPT:

Has the Review of Cuban-American Blogs been placed on some official Resource List for the U.S. military? For no sooner had we finished writing about the U.S. Coast Guard's unexpected visit to these precincts, we received a visit from army.mil (Military), U.S. Army Research Laboratory, based in Hyattsville, Maryland. The Coast Guard visited us at 12:59:07pm and the U.S. Army at 1:54:01pm. We'll keep you apprised if the Navy or the Marines are next.

Facts are what they are. Like it or not.

Am glad the Coast Guard has come to your blog, they can learn a few things from you, like how to better treat the balseros, as you say, why don't they list the ones that have perished while they were "saving" them

I just re read Angels who Smuggle, and was impressed by it again, wonder what kind of impression it left on the Coast Guard.

Manuel,
all these visits smell of a rat. Hope the guys in grey overcoats wearing badges don't come knocking at your door to ask questions wondering about your writings on RCAB. May sure you have some coffee and doughnuts ready for them. I wonder if Babalu get the same cybernetic visitors?.

I am shocked! In this free country? Nothing like that could ever happen here. Next thing you'll be saying that the U.S. Coast Guard harasses Cuban refugees and imperils their lives on the high seas, and then returns them to Castro's Cuba. How could such a thing be possible here! Perish the thought.
