Romney: U.S. Is Neglecting Latin America

Gov. Mitt Romney condemned Cuban leader Fidel Castro and said the United States needs to rebuild its relationship with Latin America.

"We must never again ignore Latin America," Romney said. "...Since the end of the Cold War and since the terror of Sept. 11, America has been so preoccupied with other regions that we seem to have forgotten our friends in our own hemisphere."

The 2008 Republican presidential candidate gave the speech on Friday to the GOP Miami-Dade chapter in Florida.
