FLASHBACK - Castro Blames the C.I.A. For an Epidemic in Cuba

President Fidel Castro said tonight that he shared the profound suspicion of many Cubans that a series of disastrous crop blights and the current epidemic of dengue fever, which has killed 113 people, including 81 children, were deliberately introduced into Cuba by the Central Intelligence Agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1981, we dismissed such claims as the ravings of "The Enemy."

But today, in the post "Saddam's nooks" age and amid revelations of the institutionalized use of torture by the US government, it may be that we were a bit too hasty in our prejudices.
