U.S. Delegation Probes Cuba for Hints of the Future

The largest U.S. congressional delegation to visit Cuba since 1959 tried, but failed, to open a dialogue with Fidel Castro's brother, Raul. But they did meet with an array of high-level Cuban officials who, according to one congressman, were interested in discussing business links with the U.S.

Lawmakers were also told by Cuban officials that Fidel does not have cancer and will make a public appearance soon. The U.S. State Department says it is taking a wait and see approach.
