fidel castro’s government secretly creating biological weapons? It cant be. The ENCASA people and all those reporters have never, ever even alluded to mentioning anything about no biological agents.
Im Shocked. SHOCKED I TELL YOU!
MIAMI – The former chief of Cuba’s military medical services is calling for international weapons inspections of a secret underground lab near Havana, where he says the government is creating biological warfare agents like the plague, botulism and yellow fever.
Roberto Ortega, a former army colonel who ran the military’s medical services from 1984 to 1994, defected in 2003 and now lives in South Florida.
After living here quietly for four years, this week Ortega went on the Spanish language media circuit to denounce what he claims is an advanced offensive biological warfare weapons program. He spoke Tuesday night at the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban American Studies where one angry heckler stormed out accusing him of deliberately sowing fear among Cuban exiles.
“They can develop viruses and bacteria and dangerous sicknesses that are currently unknown and difficult to diagnose,” Ortega told The Miami Herald. “They don’t need missiles or troops. They need four agents, like the people from al-Qaida or the Taliban, who contaminate water, air conditioning or heating systems.”
He said Cuba was ready to use the biological agents “to blackmail the United States in case of an international incident” such as the threat of a U.S. invasion.
How long before the fidel castro boot lickers start swearing that Ortega is part and parcel of the extremist, intransingent, right wing cabal that is the Miami Mafia?
