Tom DeLay caught on camera smoking a cuban!

Time Magazine has a photograph of Tom DeLay smoking a cuban cigar in Israel last year.

Arguing against loosening sanctions against Cuba last year, DeLay warned that Fidel Castro "will take the money. Every dime that finds its way into Cuba first finds its way into Fidel Castro's blood-thirsty hands.... American consumers will get their fine cigars and their cheap sugar, but at the cost of our national honor."
Hey, maybe it was a fake!

I wrote a few more comments about this on my cigar blog.

noteworthy from the article was this:

The regulation also noted that Americans are barred not only from purchasing Cuban goods in foreign countries, but also from consuming them in those countries.

So now I can't legally smoke a cuban cigar in a foreign country!

it seems like there are a lot of lawmakers who enjoy cigars. It has always confused me why they want to make it so hard to smoke cubans... you know they are smoking them when they get the chance.
