“‘The policy of the United States is clear. We want a peaceful transition to democracy in Cuba. It is that simple. It is that unshakable. And towards that goal, we will never compromise our principles, nor cease our efforts.’ February 27, 1998, Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright.” [Pro Embargo]
