ALAN GROSS IS NOT A SPY! EVEN THE CUBAN "GOVERNMENT" HAD TO ADMIT THAT! HE DOESNT EVEN SPEAK SPANISH! SOME SPY! THE US SHOULD NOT GIVE INTO EXTORTION OR YOU CAN BE NEXT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!
N.Y. TIMES: Senators Urge Castro to Release American - By JONATHAN WEISMAN - February 24, 2012

Mr. Gross, a Maryland resident, was sentenced last year to 15 years in prison after his arrest in 2009 while serving on a democracy-building project financed by the United States Agency for International Development. Mr. Gross, who was accused of bringing satellite and other communications equipment to Cuba, was convicted of crimes against the state, not espionage. Cuban authorities “do not consider Alan Gross a spy,” Mr. Leahy said.

Mr. Gross had traveled to Cuba five times in 2009 under his own name before his arrest.

If the U.S. is 'lying' about Gross's health, as Ms.Vidal claims, then Cuba has to prove that Gross is healthy.

They don't? To whom are you referinf as "THEY" don't.

As avuncular as the Castro brothers appear to be, they're dangerous and those on humanitarian missions to that island need to watch their P's and Q's more carefully than Gross did.

We need to end the embargo on Cuba and restore diplomatic relations immediately. It would go a long way in helping our own economy and giving the people there a an opportunity to join the rest of the world. I thought the cold war was over. The time has come.

I'm with you. Think we can convince the Miami Cuban's?

I think we ought to tell the Miami Cubans to go pound sand and, whlie we're at it, include AIPAC, Our foreign policy should have the best interests of the U.S. as it's only goal.

They are not much of a political force anymore.  Most are too old and dying the young are not as reactionary.  IMO

WE NEED TO END THE VIOLENCE IN CUBA BY THE CASTROFASCIST "GOVERNMENT" AGAINST THOSE WHO THINK DIFFERENTLY POLITICALLY THAN THEY DO!

ALJAZEERA VIDEO: Cuba dissidents Ladies in White & Antonio Rodiles @ 8:50 - After 53 years of revolution, Cubans ar increasingly exasperated by the restrictions imposed on them by the country's change-averse communist regime. In spite of, or perhaps because of, recent modest economic reforms, activism is growing as the government's opponents overcome their fear of arrest and take to the streets. But it is not easy. Today, even the church based Ladies in White -- a group of women relatives of imprisoned activists - say they are routinely spied on and arrested. Nevertheless, inspired by the Arab Spring, the Ladies are determined to keep up their protests, sensing that the regime's grip on power is fading and that sooner rather than later it will be forced to give way.
