5/2-WE'RE NOT GRABBING YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE GUILTY; DUMB AMERICAN. WE'RE GRABBING YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE USEFUL!
TRAVEL TIP: Don't visit any Communist country whose agents are doing time in American jails, unless you like the idea of becoming a human bargaining chip for a back-room swap. Cuban-born writer HUMBERTO FONTOVA spotlights the campaign to "Free The Cuban Five", Communist agents who infiltrated "Brothers to the Rescue", a group of volunteer Cuban pilots living in Florida who regularly patrolled the Florida Straits looking for Cubans fleeing Cuba on rafts, small boats and even less sea-worthy craft, gave their flight plans to Castro whose modern Soviet fighter planes shot several of them out of the air. They were later arrested and convicted and are now serving time in American jails. The current campaign hints that American Alan Gross, imprisoned for supplying cell phones and internet access to Cuba's small Jewish population might be released if America only released the "Cuban Five". Fontova visits Sara and Barry for a close-up inside.
