‘That Alone Should Have Been Enough’

Did you see Mary Anastasia O’Grady in the Wall Street Journal?

On March 13, the secret police in Havana again set upon the Ladies in White, a group of peaceful dissidents. One member, Aliuska Gómez, told the online newspaper Diario de Cuba about her arrest. “After they had taken away all of my belongings,” she said, “they told me to strip naked, and I refused . . . so they threw me down on the floor and took off all of my clothing, right in front of two men” and “they dragged me completely naked into a jail cell.” That alone should have been enough for Mr. Obama to cancel his trip.

P.S. Pretty much everything I think about Obama and Cuba, I put into a column last month.
