Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro sat down at a Western Hemisphere summit in Panama on Saturday for the first meeting of its kind between U.S. and Cuban leaders in nearly 60 years. Cuba’s communist government had said normal relations between the two former Cold War foes would be impossible as long as it remained on the U.S. blacklist. Obama ordered a review of Cuba’s status after he and Castro announced a diplomatic breakthrough on Dec. 17.
