There’s little doubt that Cuba’s Fidel Castro is about to add another to his personal list of “US Presidents I’ve Seen In Power”, even though Fidel isn’t Cuba’s top man himself any more. But according to this report (and amazingly there’s only one English version of the report published by the Indo Asia News Service…no Reuters, no DJNW, no Bloomberg, no AP, no AFP….strange that, innit?)

‘Today, Fidel is doing very well, he leads a normal life and could return to power if he wanted to. He has no physical or medical impediments,’ Spanish physician Jose Luis Garcia Sabrido said in an interview published Sunday in the Argentine yada yada continues here.
