THE CUBA travel embargo remains one of the worst relics of a bygone era. Now Florida Republicans Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart want to know what the hell Beyonce and Jay-Z are doing in Cuba.

… In a letter to the Treasury Department, which issues such licenses, south Florida Republicans Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart demanded to know what purpose Jay and Bey cited to make their trip, noting that “the Castro regime touted it as [tourism] in its propaganda,” and that “the restrictions on tourism travel are common-sense measures meant to prevent U.S. dollars from supporting a murderous regime that opposes U.S. security interests at every turn and which ruthlessly suppresses the most basic liberties of speech, assembly, and belief.” [Washington Post]

Great photos and another reminder that the Cuba travel embargo is ridiculous.
