  3. Out of timing to condemn PM, Dr RowleyRead the original story

    20 hrs ago | Trinadad Express

When Dr Rowley talks about Mrs Persad-Bissessar bringing our country into the view of extremists, it appears that he fails to recognise this could most likely have already been so long before, for many of those countries spearheading the assault on ISIS, namely the US, France, UK, etc have embassies in Trinidad and Tobago; everyday hundreds of their citizens mingle among us.
