Fidel Castro calls bin Laden killing an assassination

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro is slamming the method used to kill Osama bin Laden, 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. Castro criticized bin Laden for "international terrorism" and said Cuba showed solidarity with the United States after the "brutal" September 11 attacks. However, in the article Castro calls the killing of bin Laden an "execution" by U.S. Navy SEALs and says the attack and the subsequent burial at sea "show fear and insecurity, and turn him into a much more dangerous person."

The news come on the heels of the sentencing of a Chilean businessman in Cuban court, state news in Cuba reported Thursday. Max Marambio, whose company Rio Zaza made juices and milk, was once a close friend of Castro's. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being convicted in absentia of bribery and fraud.

    Fidel is correct that we assinated Bin Laden B.F.D.. The blood on Fidel's hands from all of the assinations he conducted throughout his long dictatorship must be getting to him.

    What's wrong Frank? Are you having a hard time coming to the realization that your daddy was just one of your mother's crackhead tricks? Is turning tricks yourself in the back alley of any gay bar not doing it for you anymore?
    Are you content with being a loser?
    Sure looks that way.
