About time for a new Cuba policy

new Cuba policy

Today President Obama revealed a deal had been struck with Cuba's Raul Castro to release U.S. Prisoner Alan Gross and another unnamed prisoner who is thought to be an undercover agent.

Normalized relations is the next step. Needless to say, this is a controversial decision  but one whose time is overripe!

For over 50 years the policy of embargo and confrontation has been in place. It has helped entrench the Castro government.

The old policy met Einstein's definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

It is time for this new era in Cuban-U.S. relations to begin.
