Castro and the Kennedys

It is very common for people to lionize John F. Kennedy and downplay (or even ignore) his less pleasant qualities. However, it is not something I would normally expect from Fidel Castro. He writes that we can set aside all that invasion and attempted assassination stuff (he shrugs it off, arguing that Nixon would've been worse, and Kennedy was in a tough bind), and instead focus on the fact that a long line of Kennedys, beginning with JFK just before he was killed (or at least he implies this) have argued to allow unrestricted travel to Cuba.
