Jim: I do think there can be “serious debate” regarding “our efforts against Fidel Castro.” They may have “manifestly failed,” but mainly for lack of trying. If we could intervene in Haiti in recent years (whether overtly or covertly) both to restore Aristide and later to oust him, surely we could have removed Castro almost as easily. For various reasons both domestic and geopolitical, we chose not to. We didn’t create Castro, as Ron Paul lamely contends. We just let him be.
