Fidel: Obama Treats Latam With Contempt

Thursday, 05 November 2009 11:20 PM EST

Fidel Castro criticized Barack Obama for signing an agreement with Colombia that “expands the use of seven military bases in the heart of our America” and he considered that decision “outrageous”, adding that it’s “cynical” from Washington to call Cuba terrorist.

Castro’s statements were published in Granma, the official press organ of the Cuban Communist Party (CCP), in column “Reflections of Comrade Fidel.”

The President of the United States is wrong and his advisors are wrong to continue down this sordid route, treating the people of Latin America with such contempt,” Castro was reported declaring.

“With the use of these bases the United States threatens not only Venezuela, but all the peoples Central and South America,” said Castro.

“This is not an act from Bush’s administration; it’s Barack Obama who endorses that agreement, violating legal and constitutional laws,” he added.
