At yesterday’s press briefing, State Department spokesman Jen Psaki was asked repeatedly about the 53 political dissidents Cuba seemed to have promised to release as part of the deal to normalize relations with the United States. Who are they? Where are they? Have any of them been released? Do you know? Why can’t you psay?
The matter appears to be a highly classified state secret. Pressed by AP State Department reporter Matt Lee, Psaki ‘psplains: “This is something they’ve agreed to. I would point you to them for any updates on the number of people or the people have been released.”
