[Cuba Trade] Washington Post Article Focuses on Crackdown on Cuba-Related Travel

Today's Washington Post has an article discussing the ramifications of the Bush Administration's recent effort to reduce the number of U.S. citizens who visit Cuba. The article reports that licenses for travel to Cuba have been reduced, and prosecution of accused lawbreakers has intensified. The article notes that the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which enforces sanctions against countries, terrorist networks and drug traffickers around the world, has assigned 21 of its 120 employees -- and $3.3 million of its $21.2 million budget -- to Cuba enforcement efforts in fiscal year 2003. The article also states that the Department of Homeland Security has begun training officers to look for U.S. citizens traveling illegally to Cuba through third countries, including Canada and Mexico.
