To accelerate the demise of castro's tyranny.
Long-time congressional staffer Caleb McCarry has been appointed the State Department's Cuba transition coordinator. From the Miami Herald
''For nearly 50 years, the regime of Fidel Castro has condemned the people of Cuba to a tragic fate of repression and poverty,'' Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said as part of McCarry's introduction, adding that the appointment will ``accelerate the demise of Castro's tyranny.''
McCarry's position was created by President Bush a year ago to help implement the end of fidel's evil regime.
Before an audience of Cuban-American legislators, exile leaders and other supporters of U.S.-Cuba policy, McCarry said, ``It is the responsibility of the civilized world to act to see that the Cuban family is reunited under political and economic freedom.''
The Cuban exile leaders like the appointment. Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-Fla) says McCarry is extremely bright and thoroughly knowledgeable. Horacio Garcia, of the Cuban Liberty Council, says he has commitment and passion.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced the appointment last night in Washington, saying the appointment would accelerate the demise of castro's tyranny. George Moneo has more at Babalublog.
