Reaction Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) To The State Department’s Recommendation To Remove Cuba From 'State Sponsors Of Terrorism' List

"This would be another long-overdue and courageous step toward ending a failed policy and toward normalizing relations with Cuba.  We have many differences with the Cuban government.  But it makes no sense, and it devalues the list of state sponsors of international terrorism, to include a country that hundreds of thousands of Americans visit annually, whose government our friends and allies engage with regularly to their benefit, and that poses no security threat to the United States."
