"The United States Will Find a Dictatorship to Dictatorship Transition Unacceptable"
Washington- At a hastily called press conference, White House spokesman Tony Snow reiterated the position of the United States on the transition to democracy in Cuba. "I hope that the Cuban successor government will move in the short term toward preparation for democratic elections, elections that will pave the way for democratic governance. The United States will find a dictatorship-to-dictatorship transition unacceptable." Mr. Snow did not elaborate on the policies that the United States would undertake in reaction to the death of President Castro.
