Hasta la victoria siempre

"Forever, until victory". Or at least until you get found out.

The US Office of Foreign Assets Control is $182,000 better off after Travelocity was found to have broken rules originating from the Cold War which prohibit companies from trading with the Communist haven of Cuba.

This is really rather naughty in the eyes of the US government, who take a dim view of companies who trade with the devil small island in the Caribbean without a license.

According to The Register, Travelocity claimed the transactions had only been allowed because of a "technical malfunction". Nevertheless they managed to do it on 1,458 occasions for, er, over six years.
