Exclusive: Cuba has freed all 53 prisoners as agreed in U.S. deal - U.S. officials
WASHINGTON/HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba has released all 53 prisoners it had promised to free, senior U.S. officials said, a major step toward détente with Washington.
The release of the remaining prisoners sets a positive tone for historic talks next week aimed at normalizing relations after decades of hostility, the officials said.
They described the Cuban government’s release over the weekend of the last detainees on the list as a milestone but said they would keep pressing Havana to free more people the United States considers political prisoners.
Terrible news for the anti-Obama lemmings like Cruz and Rubio. Without the isolation of Cuba, they don't have much of a stick if they decide to run in the 2016 election. I mean, who'd want to be the guy running on the failures of a 50 year strategy that have only hurt Cubans? The solution is clear. Open talks with the Cuban people like Richard Nixon did with China, and show that the US is not the evil boogieman that these regimes paint us to be.
