Odds and ends

  • I have written a few times about Europe’s “common position” regarding Cuba; a reader points out that the origin of this policy was an “explicit threat of Helms-Burton Title III sanctions” during the Clinton Administration. Title III, which has never gone into effect because Clinton and Bush have waived it every six months, would allow Cuban Americans whose property is touched by foreign investors in Cuba to sue those investors in U.S. courts.
