Your three editorials about Cuba this month are a welcome acknowledgment that the embargo is a fossilized Cold War fiasco. A significant step could be taken by engaging in serious dialogue to secure the release of a United States Agency for International Development employee, Alan Gross, jailed in Cuba since 2009, and three Cubans, jailed in the United States for the past 15 years. Both governments claim that these men violated their laws. Both governments insist on release of their citizens as a demonstration of good faith. Serious humanitarian reasons support their release. Once they are free, their respective governments can talk about commerce, education, health and human rights. We all stand to benefit.
