Jeb Bush appeals to Biden to ‘tear down’ the Cuban cyberwall


Former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush took to Twitter on Sunday to appeal to the Bide administration to employ the technology needed to restore internet service in Cuba amid unrest that erupted a week ago during anti-government protests. .

“If President Biden is willing to use it, the technology exists to sabotage the Cuban Cyberlaw (SP) and aid the dissidents,” he posted. “Please do this, President Biden.”

Bush retweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial that pointed to Havana’s attempt to quell protests by limiting internet access in some areas of the country. The strategy is not new and has been used by other regimes facing unrest.

The paper said the question is not really whether the US has the technology; The question is whether the Biden administration needs the political will to take such a step.

“Biden may be wary of upsetting the Left and his romance with the Cuban regime, but the 2020 election showed Florida has a strategy to lose,” the newspaper said.

Biden said on Thursday he was looking at setting up an internet source for Cubans as the government closed access amid massive protests.

The Cuban government on Wednesday ended an internet shutdown, allowing videos and images to emerge that revealed repressive efforts by police forces to quell protests, but the service has been unreliable.

The White House did not immediately respond to an email from LBL.

In 2015, when he was considering a run for president, he was critical of the Obama administration’s approach to Cuba.

“Ninety miles to the south of us, there is talk of a state visit by our outgoing president,” he said, referring to President Obama. “But we don’t need a proud tourist to go to Havana in support of a failed Cuba. We need an American president to visit Havana in solidarity with the people of independent Cuba, and I’m ready to be that president. “
