Cuban lesson for Obama

The US blockade of Cuba has been in place since 1962 and is the most restrictive set of sanctions to be imposed by one country on another.

To deny a poor developing country access to food and medicines is a wrongheaded and vindictive policy that frustrates the US business sector as well as punishing Cuban people.

Ending the blockade should be a first step by the new administration in Washington toward greater détente with Cuba.
