WHAT A RELIEF: Castro absolves Obama of fault for American "imperialist aggression"

I guess the entirety of the American population remains on the hook, but at least the genocidal dictator Raul Castro has abolved El Presidente from blame for our "meddling" (Obama's words, not mine).

Obama meets with genocidal dictator Raul Castro, the first U.S. President to meet with Cuba's leader since the Communist Revolution.
Cuban President Raul Castro recounted the history of U.S. "imperialist aggression" in Latin America in an address here Saturday at the 7th Summit of the Americas, although he absolved U.S. head of state Barack Obama of responsibility for those past actions...

"All (of the previous U.S. presidents) are indebted to us, but not President Obama," who is an "honest man ... with a manner about him that speaks to his humble origins," the Cuban leader said.

Castro also described as a "positive step" Obama's recent statement indicating he will soon make a decision on Cuba's presence on a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.

"They say we're terrorists. And we indeed have acted in solidarity with many peoples that may be considered terrorists" under the viewpoint of "imperialism," Castro said, noting that he was referring to Cuba's humanitarian missions in various developing countries.

I suppose this is the least Castro could do after Obama formally apologized for "meddling" in Latin and South America as well as renouncing the circa-1823 Monroe Doctrine.
