Cuba & Setting Wrongs to Right

While Fidel Castro certainly did his part, has there been a more wrongheaded and longstanding American foreign policy than that toward Cuba?

Dare the Bush administration score a rare success and now declare the de facto 48-year war with Cuba over by lifting travel restrictions, say, in return for new President Raúl Castro releasing political prisoners and banning four-hour official speeches?

One can only hope.

Iraq has probably been more wrongheaded but not as longstanding. But for the correct answer to your question, just ask Dick C. where he gets his cigars from.
