Alan Gross, the former government contractor from Potomac who spent five years locked up in a Cuban jail, says he thought his bosses would intervene after his arrest in 2009 and he'd quickly be freed.
In his first interview since his release last year in a historic deal between the United States and Cuba, Gross was asked by Scott Pelley of "60 Minutes" whether he expected that the government would come to his aid.
"I absolutely did for the first two weeks," Gross says in an excerpt released by CBS on Friday. "And then I said to myself, 'Where the hell are they? Where are they?' I didn't have any idea I'd be there for five years."
