The 26th Parallel takes a close look at the Ileana Ros-Lehtinen mess and draws two conclusions: 1) Why not whack Fidel? 2) Filmmaker Dollan Cannell is full of baloney.
Ros-Lehtinen may actually desire that castro be eliminated by any means possible, including assassination. If so, then....so? I would agree with her, and so would many others who have suffered or seen relatives suffer at the hand of that bastard. But that's not the point.
What's wrong here is that a documentary apparently approaching a story from its own angle and perspective, and trying to discredit and paint a U.S. Congresswoman as dishonest and dishonorable, is resorting to dishonest tactics to accomplish this.
