US General Calls for Cuba’s Removal from Terrorist Countries List

HAVANA TIMES, March 23 — US Brigadier General John Adams and lobbyist David W. Jones requested that Washington remove Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism in a recent article on The Hill website.

“American policy hurts our businesses and workers by providing a rationale to continue the job-killing embargo on trade with Cuba,” said Adams, who also called that policy “counterproductive and hypocritical.”

The former military officer, who was removed from active duty in 2007 and who carries considerable weight in the upper echelons of the Pentagon, gave his opinion following a recent trip to Cuba, according to a report from the Café Fuerte website.
