Win Some, Loose Some?

Cuba has released at least seven political prisoners. This should be good news, right?

Well, yes and no. You see the release comes on the heels of another dissident being sentenced for 12 years in prison, after a quick closed trial and 4 years in jail without having been charged. So he'll end up with close to 16 years. Where are the Human Rights activists that so loudly lobby for the prisoners in Guantanamo? The silence is deafening.
