Ignoring Dr. Biscet

Dear Mr. Williams,

On the November 6, 2007 broadcast of the NBC News you gave two names of the eight recipients of the White House's presidential medal of freedom.

Absent was the name of the black political prisoner Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet - languishing in Castro's dungeuns - who was a recepient of this award. Dr. Biscet had been tireless fighting for freedom and human rights for all Cubans on the island. This long overdue recognition to this black Cuban political prisoner, following the teaching of Martin Luther King and Gandhi, should be an example for all Americans.

Read the article A Cuban Hero by Mary Anastasia O'Grady, Nov. 5, 2007, pg. A18, The Wall Street Journal, The Americas and A HERO IN CASTRO'S GULAG by Jeff Jacoby, Sunday,Nov. 4, 2007, The Boston Globe.

The fact that you didn't mention Dr. Biscet leave a lot to be desired from NBC News.
