If this proves to be true, it does not bode well for Fidel Castro.
There are many people in the US, even many conservatives, that think that our policy of embargo and isolation of Cuba has gone on long enough, and
that the only way to bring them around will be to open up trade.
However, if these facts are correct, I see it as fresh ammunition for the Bush administration to rachet up the pressure on Havana, instead of
loosening it. Fidel better watch his back.
