General Ochoa died of ‘severe anemia,’ complicated by bullet holes to the chest

From the same dictatorship in Havana, Cuba that releases those incredibly impressive literacy statistics, wonderful health care numbers, and those too good to be true educational achievements, we receive the official cause of death for General Arnaldo Ochoa, executed by firing squad by the Castro dictatorship in 1989 as a scapegoat when the regime's drug trafficking business was about to be exposed.

The death by firing squad of General Arnaldo Ochoa on July 13, 1989 appears in the records of the Colon Cemetery in Havana as being attributed to "severe anemia" according to a book recently published.
