Mauricio Claver-Carone schools Wayne Smith and Michael Reid on Diane Rehm's show on NPR:

From Today's Diane Rehm Show

You can listen to the spirited discussion here.

From NPR:

Pope Benedict XVI is conducting mass today Havana. Yesterday he met with Cuba’s president, Raul Castro. Today he’s scheduled to meet with his brother, Fidel. The Pope’s three day visit comes at time when Cuban leaders seem to be signaling change: for the first time since the communist revolution private property can be bought and sold legally and 130 prisoners were recently released, but earlier this week, in response to the Pope’s call for a “better society”, Cuba’s economic minister said, "in Cuba, there will be no political reform".

Guests

Michael Reid, editor of the Americas section of "The Economist"
Mauricio Claver-Carone, executive director, Cuba Democracy Advocates
Wayne Smith, senior fellow, Center for International Policy
Nik Steinberg, researcher, Human Rights Watch
