Castro claims Cuba saved Reagan from assassination in 1984


news.yahoo.com

HAVANA - Fidel Castro claims Cuba's government saved the life of President Reagan by giving American officials information about an assassination plot in 1984.

The essay published Wednesday in the Communist Party newspaper Granma appeared to be the first time Cuba has made the claim. It seemed aimed at showing Cuba has cooperated with the United States in the past.

Truth is im not surprised. Warsaw pact countries and esp. Cuba were scared of Reagan. Whereas Carter was more circumspect (his human rights push, began the first cracks) Reagan was far more upfront and public about fighting communism and was not scared to fight proxy wars in outside countries to stop the spread (Think Contras etc.) No doubt any assassination attempt would draw scrutiny if the suspects had any hint of communism. No doubt the fear of being implicated drove this disclosure.

Or conversely Fred, it may be Cuba's way of making an overture to the US in the hopes of losing some of its demonisation, prior to the death of Castro and a change in power in the country.

If it was current information I could see it. However, this was disclosure of information apparently recieved / passed on in 1984 and is unlikely to change either countries stance towards each other.
