Reopening the US Embassy in Cuba is about Headlines, Not Spreading Democracy, says John Boehner

Free Beacon [1] with the latest:

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) criticized the Obama administration for normalizing relations with Cuba for the purpose of “collecting headlines” rather than encouraging democracy.

While Secretary of State John Kerry cheered the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Cuba Friday, Boehner insisted that the celebration will do nothing to bring “real change” to President Raul Castro’s regime.

“Once again, the Obama administration’s fixation on collecting headlines by embracing and granting unilateral concessions to pariah states has not delivered real change in their behavior or improvement in the lives of their citizens,” the Ohio lawmaker said in a statement [2].
