Alan Gross–Cuban Five deal…???
From Wolf Blitzer:
Publicly, there may be a diplomatic stalemate between Havana and Washington right now, but I suspect there may also be some movement behind the scenes. We shall see soon enough.
I suspect Blitzer is correct.
Alan Gross from last week:
I would say to Raul Castro that I think he's trying to do some very courageous things....And I think he's a very pragmatic individual who recognizes the need for private sector growth and development here. And he has said that he's hoping that the - the - the growth of the private sector will offset those newly unemployed...And so I would say to President Castro that I think he's - he's - he's - he's courageous and I applaud his - his pragmatic approach to beginning to - to try to create a -a more positive business environment.
