U.S. President Barack Obama has spoken out on the passing of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, saying that history will record and judge the ‘enormous’ impact that Castro had on ‘the people and the world around him.’
EDITOR’S NOTE: Marxist Barack Obama has never met a dictator he didn’t like, and he loved Fidel Castro. Castro was a bloodthirsty dictator who enslaved his country of Cuba and kept it in perpetual poverty for well over half a century. Yet, Barack Obama today praised this man who brought the world to the brink of nuclear war in the 1960’s and mourned his passing. Somewhere miles below the Earth, Saul Alinsky is looking up and, through the smoke and flames, attempting to smile on his pupil Obama. Birds of a feather and all that…yes, history will judge Fidel Castro, but that’s not the judgment he should be worrying about.
The White House released Obama’s statement on Saturday morning in which he noted the relationship between the U.S. and Cuba has been marked by ‘discord and profound political disagreements’ for nearly six decades.
Obama offered his condolences to Castro’s family and said his thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.

‘At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people,’ Obama’s statement said.
‘We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation.

President Obama went on to say that during his presidency, ‘we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is not defined by our differences.’
‘But by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity,’ he said.
‘This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.
‘Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future.
‘As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.’ source
