President Obama doesn’t want to get into a tiff with Raul Castro and the Cuban government because his strategy is to be as nice to them as possible.
Weasel Zippers reports via ABC News:
President Barack Obama told ABC News anchor David Muir in an exclusive interview today in Havana, Cuba, that he had not yet given President Raúl Castro a list of dissidents, which the Cuban leader seemed to request during a news conference earlier today.

In the joint news conference, Obama and Castro clashed on the issue of human rights in Cuba, with the Cuban leader denying knowledge of any political prisoners in the island nation.
“What political prisoners? Give me a name, or names, or after this meeting is over you can give me a list of political prisoners and if we have those political prisoners they will be released before tonight ends,” Castro said.
Good to know Obama is still not standing up to our enemies.
