Brian Latell video on Cuba transition

Host: World Affairs Council of Oregon
Location: Portland, OR
Date: Nov 16 2006

Program Description: Raul Who? The Fate of Post-Fidel Cuba

Although six U.S. Presidents may be forgiven for wondering, Fidel Castro really may not live forever. His recent illness and provisional take-over by brother Raul, foreshadow the dynastic transition that will inevitably come. The health episode has caused U.S. policy-makers, the international community, and Cubans themselves to ponder a future without El General. Does Raul have the support of the military? Who is he, as a matter of character and capability? What does the average Cuban think about this monarchic succession? What is the future of “the revolution”? And what impact will this have on Latin America, U.S. policy and the anti-Castroites in Miami? - World Affairs Council of Oregon

Dr. Brian Latell is a distinguished Cuba analyst and author of After Fidel: The Inside Story of Castro’s Regime and Cuba’s Next Leader. He heads the Cuba Transition Project at the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies. Dr. Latell taught for 25 years at Georgetown University and served in the early 1990’s as National Intelligence Officer for Latin America for the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Very interesting speech and it changed my mind about Brian Latell. I initially thought that he was just out selling his book “After Fidel” but he really knows his subject and does not seem to have a pro or anti Fidel slant although he does admire his political abilities.

    This is a refreshing, unbiased outlook on the future of Cuba and that’s why we are posting the link to this video here at the Havana Journal.
