The small print of Obama’s presidential policy directive on Cuba › Cuba › Granma – Official voice of the PCC

The small print of Obama’s presidential policy directive on Cuba › Cuba › Granma – Official voice of the PCC – The U.S. President stated that the document represents a “comprehensive and whole-of-government approach” and aims to make the transformations of the last two years irreversible. He added that the directive “promotes transparency by being clear about our policy and intentions.” Meanwhile, his National Security Adviser, Susan E. Rice, went even further in recognizing that there were “secret plans for Cuba” in the past, but that the U.S. had now decided to make public the executive directives concerning relations with the island. As the saying goes, the devil is in the detail. Through technocratic language and the typical neologisms of diplomacy, the text conceals many of the contradictions that remain between the two neighbors. Since the announcements of December 17, 2014, U.S. authorities have said on several occasions, and in different ways, that they have changed their methods but not their objectives.
