Why not Normalize Relations With Cuba?

April 14, 2009

It was reported today that the administration is abandoning its long-time restrictions on the ability of Cuban-Americans to visit and send money to family members on the island.  According to the article in the New York Times, the White House was not willing to normalize relations with Cuba.  I would like to know why the U.S. doesn’t want lift travel restriction for all Americans, as well as start to build diplomatic ties with it and why the Cuban exile community opposes any softening of American policy?
