|Fidel Castro reveals what many of us have known for years — Osama bin Laden was a prized CIA asset.|
Editor’s note: The Guardian dismisses Osama’s link to the CIA as a conspiracy theory. There is, however, an avalanche of facts pointing to Bin Laden’s relationship with the CIA, although the corporate media has consistently ignored it since September 11, 2001. See the resources below.
Fidel Castro has more reason than most to believe conspiracy theories involving dark forces in Washington. After all, the CIA tried to blow his head off with an exploding cigar.
But the ageing Cuban revolutionary may have gone too far for all but the most ardent believer in the reach and competence of America’s intelligence agency. He 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.
