    Also Maduro from Venezuela who is at the same conference has said something along the lines of "With all respect I do not trust the US/Obama." Cuba has friends who are also watching closely. The US doesn't have the same free hand there in the south any more. The conference has been quite confronting for Obama where many speakers have spoken very freely indeed,
    On theory: he had a visit from an economic hit man who made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
    I'm not sure if Raul's speech has been translated into English yet or made the Anglophone media if it has. Raul unambiguously gave the US and Obama both barrels including referencing JFK's murder when he tried to make peace with Cuba. He wasn't referencing Oswald either. But with the implication that Obama needs to look over his shoulder at his own military and intel services.
    Castro's speech the day after the assassination made 100% clear that he knew it was an "inside job" and was because of JFK's peace plans.
    So no doubt he shared this with his brother. I think it's great that Obama appears to be making some change but I too am not ready to trust what he is really up to, at this time.

    We at least owe Kennedy the detente he was killed for. We should give it a shot.

    Castro should be careful. The life expectancy of such controversial foreign leaders that America shakes hands with is not too good.
