Was Gross Release Worth It for U.S.?


While I, along with many others, welcome the release of Alan Gross after his unjust imprisonment in Cuba (“Welcome Home, Alan Gross,” Dec. 26), I feel that the price was too high. The United States has exchanged an innocent man for several convicted terrorists and, in addition, agreed to resume diplomatic relations with a terrorist state, which has attempted to overthrow Latin American governments that are our friends and allies. For lessening of sanctions, freeing of terrorists and resumption of diplomatic relations, the U.S. has obtained the release of one innocent man. Is this a fair exchange?
