Has Susan Rice found her cojones moment? | Turtle Bay

How one simple quote can shape an entire foreign policy:

On Monday, Susan Rice, speaking to hundreds of rabbis at a luncheon hosted by the America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), returned to the related theme of Cuban unmentionables, recalling a 1961 speech by Adlai Stevenson defending the Kennedy administration’s botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and attacking Fidel Castro for his hostility towards the Catholic Church.

“I have already told you about Castro’s crimes against man. But now let me tell you about Castro’s crimes against God,” Rice recalled Stevenson telling the U.N. General Assembly, while an Israeli diplomat and his Irish counterpart listened together attentively. “Castro has circumcised the freedoms of the Catholics of Cuba.”
