$90 million in Cuban assets go to families of executed men


Somebody remind me what an "innocent" Iraqi life is worth these days? Last time I checked it was a few thousand dollars less than the amount given to the Cubans for an "incident" that happened several decades back.

The next day Redam Jassim was summoned to a local police station. "The Americans offered me 5,000 dollars, and told me it wasn't compensation but because of tradition," Jassim told IPS. The U.S. military pays usually 2,500 dollars compensation for killing an Iraqi. Jassim says he refused the payment.
