HAVANA (Reuters) – Ailing Cuban leader [f]idel [c]astro said the U.S. government misinformed Americans and the world about 9/11, echoing conspiracy theories about the terror attacks against the United States six years ago.
In an essay read by a Cuban television presenter on Tuesday night, [c]astro said the Pentagon was hit by a rocket, not a plane, because no traces were found of its passengers.
“Today one knows there was deliberate misinformation,” wrote [c]astro, who has not appeared in public since July of 2006 when life-threatening surgery for a secret illness forced him to hand over power to his brother [r]aul [c]astro.
“Studying the impact of planes, similar to those that hit the Twin Towers, that had accidentally fallen on densely populated cities, one concludes that it was not a plane that crashed into the Pentagon,” Castro said.
“Only a projectile could have caused the geometrically round hole that allegedly was made by the plane,” he said.
“We were fooled like the rest of the planet’s inhabitants,” he wrote.
[c]astro said the truth behind the September 11 attacks with hijacked planes that killed nearly 3,000 people will probably never be known.
[c]astro’s 4,256-word essay made no mention of Osama bin Laden and his militant Islamist al Qaeda network behind the attacks on New York’s World Trade Center and Washington.
[c]astro, who was the target of CIA assassination plots after his 1959 revolution, said Cuba tipped off U.S. security services in 1984 about a plan to kill then President Ronald Reagan while he campaigned for re-election in North Carolina.
The information provided by Cuba led to the arrest of a group of would-be assassins and foiled the plot, he wrote.
Pretty active for a maximum leader that hasn’t been seen in public in over a year. Formaldehyde works wonders…
