Obama’s new policy restores the “people-to-people” contacts between the United States and Cuba that existed under Bill Clinton’s administration, restoring the embargo exemptions for Americans traveling for humanitarian, religious, and academic purposes that were disallowed under Bush. More direct flights to the island — albeit chartered ones — will be allowed, and Americans now can transfer remittances of up to $500 per quarter, as long as they aren’t going to the Cuban government or Communist Party. Strait Talk: Barack Obama doesn’t want you to know about it, but his administration just made the biggest move in more than a decade to open up Cuba.
