    Should we pull out the images of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam?

    Perhaps, after disregarding he was acting on behalf of Reagan and that Iran was the bigger threat to the US at the time-and that he wasn't a president.

    yea. Obama and Castro in that very picture people are all up in arms about. That was a simple handshake.

    There is also a photo of Chamberlain shaking hands with Hitler. The difference is that Chamberlain did not yet know what horrors would take place. Obama must know what the Castros have been up to for over 50 years, and still shakes his hand.

    Because the Castros and Hitler is a valid comparison.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    That is not really comparable considering that photo of Chamberlain and Hitler was after signing the Munich Agreement. Obama and Castro did not sign any agreement that condemned a country.

    FYI, this is 2013. There is no Cold War, we can stop acting like Obama just agreed for the United States to eat a Soviet nuke.

    Maybe Obama can convince Castro to pull his troops out of Poland.
