Obama Statement on Cuba

Senator Obama today made the following statement following President Bush's speech on U.S. policy toward Cuba:

"After more than a year of sitting on the sidelines, President Bush has finally recognized that this is a moment of great potential for Cuban freedom. But the cause of freedom will not be advanced by counter-productive threats or conventional thinking. We need to provide the Cuban people with more uncensored access to the outside world. Unfortunately, the President chose not to deploy the most effective messengers of freedom and democratic change: Cuban Americans. To help advance democratic change in Cuba, we need to grant Cuban Americans the unfettered ability to visit family on the island and to send them remittances. It's time to break from George Bush's status quo."
