Wife of Jewish-American contractor Alan Gross is suing the United States government and global development company DAI for up to $60 million, claiming they did not properly train her husband for the risks of working in Cuba, CBS News reported.

Judy Gross has been fighting for her husbandís release since he was imprisoned in 2009 for allegedly distributing laptops and communications equipment to members of Cuba's small Jewish community under a U.S. State Department contract.

"It's this country that sent Alan on this mission, and Alan is rotting in a jail cell, and I'm asking President Obama to do something about it," Judy Gross told CBS News.

Asked about Cuban allegations of Alan Gross being a spy, Judy responded "absolutely not."

5. Of course, anyone who dares subvert the dictatorship in Cuba

is a per se spy. Especially if they deal with those pesky religious types.

6. When you've been there

you may have noticed on entry that taking satellite communications equipment in is a definite no no. If you think they're being picky then try walking through customs into the US eating an apple.

9. No, they just want to control what their own people see and hear.

If the US wanted to invade, it could brush past Cuba's defenses in a nanosecond. It has the technology to listen to every conversation inside Cuba, the satellites to monitor every movement on the ground, etc.

4. Someone must have negligently told him that Cuba respects freedom of speech, religion,

privacy, and association.
