    President Obama Notifies Congress He Intends to Remove Cuba from
    US List of State Sponsors of Terrorism!!

    Tuesday, April 14

    LAWG reports: "Cuba a terrorist state?? Not on your life. We all know that, but we have been waiting for President Obama to show he does too. Well, today, April 14, 2015, our long wait is over! President Obama submitted a report notifying Congress of his intention to remove Cuba from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list. This report to Congress is required 45 days prior to the country's actual removal. It justifies the removal and certifies that the Cuban government 'has not provided any support for international terrorism during the preceding six months, and has provided assurances that it will not support such acts in the future.'"
    Please write the White House to thank President Obama for his historic and just reassessment of US-Cuba relations.
    Thank President Obama!
