Republicans Critical of Lost Missile

The Wall Street Journal reports that “top U.S. Republicans sharply criticized the Obama administration Friday for allowing a missing Hellfire missile to be shipped to Cuba, and then not notifying lawmakers about it.”  

“Republicans spoke out in response to a Wall Street Journal article Thursday  that revealed a training missile that was sent to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 2014 ended up being shipped to Cuba, where officials seized it. So far, Cuba has refused to return the missile.”  

“The revelation came as the Obama administration strove to normalize relations with Cuba, a move opposed by most Republicans, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants and a candidate for president.”
