Fidel Castro Criticizes Obama Over Bin Laden "Assassination"

Nine months ago, former Cuban President Fidel Castro said Osama bin Laden was a CIA agent who never failed to pop up when George W. Bush needed a foil. "Bush never lacked for bin Laden's support," Castro said at the time. "He was a subordinate."

Now that bin Laden is gone, however, el comandante's conspiracy theory is dead as well. So Castro has moved on to criticizing the Obama administration for "assassinating" the very guy we supposedly paid.

"Whatever the actions attributed to [bin Laden], the assassination of an unarmed human being while surrounded by his own relatives is something abhorrent," Castro wrote.

"Obama has no way to conceal that Osama was executed in front of his children and wives, who are now under the custody of the authorities of Pakistan, a Muslim country of almost 200 million inhabitants, whose laws have been violated, its national dignity offended, and its religious traditions desecrated," Castro continued.

Of course, Fidel himself claims to have survived more than 600 such assassination attempts, from toxic cigars to exploding mollusks.

At the same time he condemned killing bin Laden in front of his family, however, Castro criticized Obama for holding onto the photos of bin Laden's corpse, arguing that the coverup and burial at sea would only make the terrorist into a martyr.

"Having assassinated him and plunging his corpse into the bottom of the sea are an expression of fear and insecurity which turn him into a far more dangerous person," he said.

Castro has it absolutely right. This was a disgraceful and shameful act by the SEALs and they have brought dishonor to the US military. The US acted like an organized crime family...shoot an unarmed man in the head and dump his body in the water at night. The sight of all the dummies celebrating in NY and Washington DC was equally as disgusting.

Why don't you move to Cuba so you can bash the US in unison, you pussy. Terrorists are depraved, rabid dogs that are put down to save innocent lives. Period. If you don't like it, tough shit. Spread THAT your Havana toast.

Castro has bats in his head, he's a fucking moron like yourself! How about the thousands of innocent people(men, women, children) killed in cold blood over the last 20 years by osama bin laden...? That doesn't count for anything? Move to Habana and give fidel a call, he's always looking for useful idiots to spread his bullshit...
