Fidel Says Osama Bin Laden Is A US Agent

From his undying fans at the UK’s Guardian:

Fidel Castro: Osama bin Laden is a US agent

Fidel Castro… has claimed that Osama bin Laden is in the pay of the CIA and that President George Bush summoned up the al-Qaida leader whenever he needed to increase the fear quotient. The former Cuban president said he knows it because he has read WikiLeaks.

Castro told a visiting Lithuanian writer, who is known as a font of intriguing conspiracy theories about plots for world domination, that Bin Laden was working for the White House.

"Bush never lacked for Bin Laden’s support. He was a subordinate," Castro said, according to the Communist party daily, Granma. "Any time Bush would stir up fear and make a big speech, Bin Laden would appear, threatening people with a story about what he was going to do."

He said that thousands of pages of American classified documents made public by WikiLeaks pointed to who the al-Qaida leader is really working for.

"Who showed that he [Bin Laden] is indeed a CIA agent was WikiLeaks. It proved it with documents," he said, but did not explain exactly how.

He made his comments during a meeting with Daniel Estulin, the author of three books about the secretive Bilderberg Club…

Actually, Mr. Castro only ‘knows’ what he reads in the papers. And even then, his understanding is a bit questionable.

In his August 4th blog entry, Mr. Castro mentioned where he got his deep insight:

A call to the President of the United States

July 29: an AFP cable informs on the unimaginable: Osama Bin Laden was an agent of the U.S. intelligence services: “… Osama Bin Laden appears in secret reports published by Wikileaks as an active agent, present and adulated by his men in the Afghan-Pakistani area.”

Of course no AFP article has made this claim, as far as we know.

But it’s been quite a while since Mr. Castro and reality have been in the same room.
