Rum Wars | The DC Dispatches | Law, Policy, and Politics
Here again, and I'm only guessing, the White House appears to have pressured senior political Treasury officials who, in turn, urged the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), to issue a license to Communist Cuba that allows the regime to pay the fees necessary to register the stolen trademark. If U.S. law requires that we economically isolate the regime, why are we licensing activities that will put more money in the pockets of regime officials? Worse, why are we engaging in activities that, essentially, condone trafficking in stolen property?
