CNN’s John King and The Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe blasted President Obama for not acknowledging Fidel Castro’s brutality in his Saturday statement on Castro’s death.
On Sunday morning, CNN’s Inside Politics panel took President Obama to task for not mentioning Fidel Castro’s brutalities in his statement after Castro’s death.
Host John King read a portion of the statement on air and asked: “No mention in the president’s statement about the brutality. Now, the president clearly is trying to defend his policy of reestablishing diplomatic relations. But no mention at all of the brutal history of Fidel Castro. Why?”
The Washington Post‘s Ed O’Keefe called Obama’s lack of a mention “stunning.” O’Keefe added that Cuban Americans had shared with him stories of “genuine brutality and horror that Castro put that island through.”
O’Keefe closed by saying those brutalities “deserve mention by the president, frankly.”
