Correa and Castro meeting in Cuba

Reuters reported today that an official Cuban newspaper had published a photograph of 83-year-old former President Fidel Castro apparently in good health, and meeting visiting Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa. The photograph of Castro, covering most of the front page of the Juventud Rebelde newspaper, showed a fit-looking Castro standing and wearing a white, short-sleeved shirt in his meeting with Correa, who began a private visit to Cuba a few days ago.

The report also said the Juventud Rebelde photograph of the former leader was the first published inside the country by state media since Feb. 17, when Fidel Castro met Chilean President Michelle Bachelet. The last video of Fidel Castro appeared in June 2008 in a meeting with Raul Castro and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

A brief official note said Fidel Castro and Correa, who is in Cuba for a rest, relaxation and a medical check-up, talked for a number of hours on Friday about recent developments in their respective countries, Latin America and the world.

2. Very distictive difference, isn't it? What a surprise. Much, much healthier, stronger.
This is going to crush that troll who has been insisting he died a year or two ago and Cuba has been lying about it, for some reason.

4. There's a couple of them posting to the LBN thread on this.
Either, 1)- Cuba has the latest in animatronic technology, or, 2)-the best CGI digital video processing team on the planet.

Or, 3)- it could be that he's doing fine now in his recovery.

Choice #3 is very hard if not impossible for the wingnutz to accept.



:hi:
