Keith Bolender fills in the spaces re the huge surprise release of the last three of the Cuban Five. Secret negotiations took place over the last 18 months between Obama and Raul Castro. Both Canada and Pope Francis worked behind the scenes facilitating the negotiations to free the Cuban Five via a prisoner exchange releasing Rolando Sarraff Trujillo, a Cuban who became a CIA agent working inside Cuban intelligence agency.

Bolender also analyzes Obama's statements to end the blockade against Cuba --including what powers Obama has and does not have. Bolender clarifies that America's strategy against Cuba has not changed, just its policy. Obama is using the stick and carrot approach.

Bolender describes the US history of terrorism against Cuba and how this terrorism led the Cuban Five to accept their mission against terror. The Five infiltrated the Cuban American terrorist groups, learned about planned terrorists attacks against Cuba and reported back to Cuba, so Cuba could stop the attacks and save hundreds of human lives.
Keith Bolender, author of two books on Cuba: Voices for the Other Side: An Oral History of US Terrorism Against Cuba (August 2010), and Cuba Under Siege: American Policy, the Revolution and Its People (December, 2012)
