Cuba roadmap

The Brookings Institution just released a report with recommendations for U.S. policy toward Cuba. It advocates a wide range of unilateral liberalization measures and dialogue, divided into the short, medium, and long terms. It even specifically says that the intiatives should be undertaken without requiring specific quid pro quo from the Cuban government.

The most important part of the report, however, is the list of 19 names attached to it. It includes the president of CANF and Mark Falcoff, a well-known conservative scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

In other words, this is yet another sign of the erosion of conservative support for our current Cuba policy. The hard core supporters of the embargo are slowly, but surely, becoming more isolated.
