PAYMENT FOR DECEMBER FOOD SHIPMENTS TO CUBA STILL NOT CONFIRMED
By Larry Daley
"Members of Congress were assured by Lino Guttierez, Acting Asst. Sec. State for Western Hemisphere Affairs that he would personally require cash up front payment (as federal law requires) prior to the December shipments of food being allowed to leave the Port of New Orleans.
However, to date, the US government, including Departments of State, Commerce and Treasury, cannot confirm to Congress payment has been received.
What's going on here?"
