THANKS, WIKILEAKS:

WikiLeaks cables detail Fidel Castro's doomed love for Obama (Rory Carroll, 12/17/10, guardian.co.uk)

Barack and Fidel: like so many great love affairs it was doomed. But memory of the passion, or at least infatuation, lingers.

Having seen off 10 US presidents – all committed to his assassination, overthrow or isolation – Fidel Castro had more reason than most to beware the occupant of the Oval Office.

But Barack Obama was different. The octogenarian communist revolutionary fell for the young new president and became "obsessed", according to confidential US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks.


Not even Fidel's Unicorn Rider?
