Reaction From The Controlled Cuba Press

Here it is folks, the reaction from the Granma International concerning the movie "Rendezvous with Death"

HAVANA (AFP) - Cuba's official newspaper dismissed a German documentary claiming Havana was behind US president John F. Kennedy's assassination as part of a conspiracy to topple Fidel Castro.
"One of the collateral objectives of the assassination ... was to annihilate the Cuban revolution," the weekly Granma International said in its Internet edition.
"This goal was not achieved and that is the secret reason why 42 years later the conspiracy continues. ... The latest machination comes from Germany," said the text signed by editorial director Gabriel Molina.
In his documentary, award-winning German filmmaker Wilfried Huismann claims to have found new evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963 on the orders of the Cuban secret service.
"Rendezvous with Death" was scheduled to air on German television Friday.
Granma International also said the documentary was a media plot to detract attention from anti-Castro militant Luis Posada Carriles, a Cuban-born Venezuelan accused of being behind the bombing of a Cuban jet in 1976 that claimed 73 lives.
Cuba accuses Washington of protecting Posada Carriles by holding him on US immigration charges in Texas rather than extraditing him to Venezuela to face terrorism charges. The Cuban airliner had taken off from Venezuela.

Wait, let me get this straight. The media, who never misses an opportunity to praise kasstro, now suddenly out of nowhere has produced a documentery for German television to detract attention from Posada Carriles, who up until now they have vilified? Isn't he always bragging about the educational system his revolucíon created? He expects anyone to buy this bull? I guess logic is not part of that curriculum. Lying bastard.
