A private for-profit Cuba blog reports the following:
The wife of jailed US contractor [JG: he was a covert U.S. agent sent by the current federal administration to try to destabilize Cuba] Alan Gross on Friday urged President
Barack Obama to send a top-level envoy to Cuba to negotiate his release,
three years after his arrest.
"I urge President Obama to make my
husband's case a top priority," Judy Gross said at a news conference
held to mark the third anniversary of her husband's arrest on the Caribbean island state.
"I urge him to privately
have an honest and open discussion with the Cubans and to do whatever is
necessary to secure Alan's release."
JG: Allan Gross deserves what he got, 15 years in jail, for violating the Cuban law which protects its sovereignty.]
