Obama Quietly Leaks That He's Ending "Wet Foot, Dry Foot" Asylum Policy for Cubans

Because, you see, Cuba is no longer a human rights violator, after undertaking no reforms that Obama did not demand they undertake to get more American dollars.

he Obama administration is ending the “wet foot, dry foot” policy that granted residency to Cubans who arrived in the United States without visas.

That’s according to a senior administration official, who said the policy change was effective immediately.

The official said the U.S. and Cuba have spent several months negotiating the change, including an agreement from Cuba to allow those turned away from the U.S. to return.

By the way, Bradley Manning is on Obama's short list for commutation. Because, you know, he* takes hacking-then-sending-confidential-information-to-Wikileaks so darned seriously.

* I should note that this dude's preferred pronoun is "she." He prefers if you refer to him as "she."
