Re the Jan. 11 article U.S.-Cuba relations: Plenty to work on in 2016:
If President Obama considers a possible visit to Cuba a major achievement, his legacy is looking more tarnished to me every day.
As noted in the article, political detentions in Cuba doubled in December. Economic growth is projected to decline as Raúl Castro admitted in a speech to his appointed National Assembly because of an “economic war” against his major benefactor, Venezuela.
A refugee crisis has developed and more recently, an advanced U.S. missile inconceivably sent by mistake there is not being returned.
If this deserves Obama’s visit to celebrate engagement, the president’s legacy will be no more than a farce.
