"Freedom Flotilla" Only Hours from Cuba
The "Freedom Flotilla" continues to move slowly towards Cuba. Hundreds of ships with thousands of Cuban exiles should begin reaching Cuban waters by midday. US Coast Guard vessels are visible from the lead ships of the Flotilla, but seem to be keeping their distance. Jorge Gonzalez, putative leader of the "Move to Cuba" expressed confidence that the United States would not interfere in the landings, and that the Cuban people would welcome the return of the exiles.
