The most well known — and feared — anti-Communist Cuban leader, Jorge Mas Canosa, died this past weekend in Miami. He was 58-years-old. Since fleeing the Cuban revolution in 1960 and coming to the United States, Mas Canosa built both an enormous business empire and a powerful — and some say repressive — political machine in Miami. Indeed, the Cuban American National Foundation — Mas Canosa’s organization — has been credited with developing most of the key anti-Cuban legislation over the past decade,including the Helms-Burton Amendment.
