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.

Guest:

  • Eddie Levy, the head of the Cuban American Defense League, a civil rights and free speech group based in Miami
  • Francisco Aruca, a journalist and the host and director of Radio Progresso, a daily radio program based in Miami
