Knuckling Under To The Inevitable

We've recently received a copy of a draft report for the Foreign Relations committee issued under the aegis of Senator Richard Lugar, R-Indiana and it is interesting reading. 

I'll cut right to the chase. What it says is this: 

"Nevertheless we must recognize the ineffectiveness of our current policy and deal with the Cuban regime in a way that enhances US interests."

That's right folks. Rip van Winkle and Sleeping Beauty both concur that the last 47 years of isolation policy has been an abysmal failure.

US policy has provided Cuba "with both a convenient, though overblown, scapegoat for its economic difficulties and an external threat with which to justify its authoritarianism."

Is it any surprise that this comes from a farm state senator?
