Does Anyone Still Think Alan Gross is NOT a Hostage?

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Does Anyone Still Think Alan Gross is NOT a Hostage?

The Castro regime's blackmail and coercion could not be any clearer.

Questions now remain:

Will the U.S. government allow itself to be blackmailed?

Or will it make it unequivocally clear to the Castro regime that such coercive actions have serious consequences? 

Here's how.

From NBC:

Cuba won't budge on jailed American contractor, insists on prisoner swap

Cuba’s government on Wednesday continued to tie the fate of an American contractor jailed there for four years to the release of four Cuban spies imprisoned in the U.S. since 1998.

Responding to renewed calls for Havana to free 64-year-old American contractor Alan Gross, Director General of Cuba’s Foreign Ministry, Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, said in a statement that the government is open to negotiations for a swap of prisoners.

"The Cuban government reiterates its readiness to immediately establish a dialogue with the United States government to find a solution to the case of Mr. Gross on a reciprocal basis, and which addresses the humanitarian concerns of Cuba relating to the case of the four Cuban anti-terrorist fighters in prison in the United States,” she said.

Ferreiro was referring to four remaining members of the “Cuban Five” held in U.S. prisons after being convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage and other charges in 1998.
