Others say the real prize in all this, little diminished by the conviction of Montes, is the influence on attitudes of those in the U.S. political establishment towards Cuba. The bottom line there is that the U.S. embargo is still in effect, but emergency relief was allowed last year by the Bush administration after a hurricane devastated parts of Cuba. How much will change now that the war on terrorism seems likely to expand to other countries is anyone's guess.
The potential that fallout from the Montes case will hurt the Cubans probably depends less on the story she told than the one truth that has pervaded the relationship between Cuba and the United States: whenever either needs a bogeyman, the other is always available.
