The Bush administration has big plans for the island of Cuba once Fidel Castro is out of power. The designated man to conduct the complicated task US Cuba Transition Coordinator Caleb McCarry.
As his title implies, McCarry already has a protocol that the United States wants to follow that he believes will ensure the best interest of the Cuban people.
McCarry spoke to Only on 4 to Eliott Rodriguez.
“The dictatorship has a succession plan,” said McCarry. “The problem is the succession plan does not address the deprivation of the Cuban people.”
In his interview, McCarry points out that work is already underway to undermine the current dictatorship, the travel embargo being one of them. McCarry says that Americans are traveling dramatically less to the communist island and that has so far prevented approximately $500 million from reaching the island - money he says goes straight to Castro’s coffers.
