Castro Mocks Obama As ‘Stupid’ Head Of American Empire

In an opinion column published in Cuba’s state-run media on Thursday, former Cuban President Fidel Castro lashed out at President Obama, Reuters reports.

Castro said Obama was being “stupid” over the case of five Cuban agents imprisoned for spying, who he believes have been treated unfairly.

He also reacted to President Obama’s comments on Wednesday, suggesting that the US was ready to improve relations with the island nation if Cuba embraced democratic reform.

“Many things will change in Cuba, but they will change by our own effort and in spite of the United States. Maybe before that empire falls,” he wrote.

This isn’t the first time this week Castro has criticized Obama; writing on Monday, he described Obama’s U.N. address as “gibberish.”
