Clinton to Lugar: We'll review Cuba policy

Good for Secretary-of-State-to-be Hillary Clinton: She says the Obama Administration will conduct a review of U.S. policy toward Cuba.

Let’s hope it will be a full review of all aspects of the policy, which is long overdue.

The commitment – “We anticipate a review of U.S. policy regarding Cuba” – came in response to written questions submitted by Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. It’s in the responses to questions 104 and 105 in this pdf document; the questions concern Cuba’s position on the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, and energy/environmental issues. And in the response to question 102, she said, “We anticipate a review of U.S. policy regarding sales of agricultural commodities toward Cuba.”
