This image provided by Chris Allen shows the view in Havana, Cuba, from his hotel room - room 1414 - at Hotel Capri in April 2014.

Those weren’t the only parallels in Allen’s recounting, which put him in a growing list of Americans with no government connections, asking the same alarming but unanswerable question: Were we victims, too?
