Quote Of The Day

“In testimony before Congressmen Eliot Engel and Connie Mack at the House Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, Enriquez sounded the alarm. Citing the return of the old dictator’s behavior of the 1980s, Enriquez described how Ortega is manipulating the courts, the constitution, and the National Assembly to maintain his control of the country and a growing share of its economy. Hugo Chavez’s favorite ally in Central America is steadily enriching himself and his cronies at the expense of his fellow Nicaraguans. Meanwhile, Ortega’s ties to Venezuela’s Chavez, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and his historic ties to the Castros and a now-resurgent Moscow should give pause to U.S. policy makers. This was the message Enriquez took to numerous policy makers, not only in the Congress, but also at the White House, the State Department, and in interviews with Voice of America and AP, among others.”– Gardner Peckham, blogging at the AEI Blog
