Clinton: Cuba Policy Failed

Might the Americas’ chilliest relationship finally be thawing? Hillary Clinton said today that “we view the present policy [toward Cuba] as having failed” after Raul Castro said yesterday he was willing to talk with the United States and put “everything” on the table, including questions of human rights and political prisoners. "We could be wrong, we admit it. We're human beings," Castro said . "We're willing to sit down to talk as it should be done, whenever." Clinton replied, "We welcome his comments and the overture they represent, and we are taking a very serious look at how to respond.”
