Fidel on Osama


In case you were wondering:

Havana, Cuba (CNN) — Former Cuban President Fidel Castro slammed the method used to kill Osama bin Laden on Thursday, saying there is no excuse for “assassinating” an unarmed man in front of his family.

“Whatever the actions attributed to bin Laden, the assassination of an unarmed human being surrounded by his family constitutes an abhorrent act,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media.

Gotta love the phrasing, too: “the actions attributed to bin Laden.”
