Cuba Opposition

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports the Bush administration is determined to maintain Washington's decades-old isolation of Cuba. Secretary of State Colin Powell has told the Congress that despite some softening of U.S. policy towards Cuba under the Clinton administration, President Bush was committed to maintaining trade sanctions against Cuba as long as Fidel Castro remains in power.
