Changing Cuba Policy -- in the United States National Interest: Staff Trip Report to the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate
From Jan. 11-14, 2009, Sen. Richard Lugar directed his senior Senate Foreign Relations Comm. staff member for Latin America, Carl Meacham, to evaluate U.S. policy towards Cuba. Mr. Meacham traveled to Cuba at the invitation of the Lexington Institute on official U.S. gov┐t. business. Peter Quilter, Sr. Staff on the House Internat. Relations Comm., was also on the delegation. During this trip, staff met with gov┐t. officials, foreign diplomats, members of the clergy, internat. media rep┐s., Cuban entrepreneurs, and other Cuban citizens in a variety of informal settings outside the apparent presence of Cuban gov┐t. officials. This report provides significant insight and a number of important recommendations to advance U.S. interests with Cuba.
