Shortly after 21 diplomats suddenly and mysteriously became ill at US Embassy in Havana, Cuba, the Trump administration almost immediately cast blame for the illnesses on the Cuban government.
Even though Castro’s government denied any knowledge and participation in any attack against US citizens, legislators like Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R), have been very vocal about what they feel was an egregious attack against Americans but he Cuban regime.
Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Rubio asserted his doubts that the Cuban government was unaware of the attack.
“Cuba is one of the most tightly controlled and monitored society in the world. Anyone who’s interacted Cuba, been to Cuba, or has anything to do with Cuba understands that very little happens in Havana that the Cuban government doesn’t know about, especially Americans working for the State Department…So the idea that over 20 Americans working for the State Department, working for the U.S. embassy could be severely injured in Cuba and the Cuban government not know anything about it is ridiculous.”- Sen. Marco Rubio
