"Perhaps most interesting are the pictures of Jeffrey Goldberg - yes, that Jeffrey Goldberg -- accompanying the old revolutionary on various stops throughout Cuba. How Goldberg - rather than, you know, a journalist with a background in Cuban affairs - came to be side-by-side with Castro is a total mystery."The interview turns out to be about the evils of anti-Semitism (the concentration camp guard is even taking credit for the elimination of anti-Semitism in Venezuela as a result of the magical words of Fidel!!!), particularly by President Ahmadinejad. Wtf??? Not to mention photo-ops with the Jews! Castro also throws in a bit of self-criticism of the 'Cuban model' directed to the concentration camp guard and his handler from the Council on Foreign Relations (to rub it in, the 'Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow for Latin America Studies and Director for Latin America Studies'!). Wtf???
Quick answer to the mystery. Fidel is getting old and wants to see the crippling American blockade lifted before he dies. Fidel knows who runs the United States. The Head Jew has promised to tell Rahm to tell Barry to tell the State Department do something about it, and all Fidel has to do is say some nice things about Jews, some un-nice things about the mythical Iranian 'anti-Semitism', and display a bit of self-doubt about the 'Cuban model'. He loves his country so much he is even willing to suffer the indignity of being interviewed by the concentration camp guard in order to try to improve relations with the Americans.
