President Obama announced today that the United States will restore diplomatic relations with Cuba, following 50 years of Cold War hostility between the two nations. The announcement came amid news that Cuba released American contractor Alan Gross, who had been held there for the last five years. We discuss the national and international implications of the policy shift.

Gloria La Riva, coordinator of the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five
