Raúl Castro must have super powers

It seems the Pentagon has been asking that U.S. officers be allowed to talk to their Cuban counterparts, but keeps getting denied. The logic of the Bush administration seems to be that if you know nothing about another country, the best option is to avoid any contact that might provide you information. It is nicer, I guess, just to make up your own.

But the stated reason for the denial? It seems that Raúl Castro has super powers, because he gives his military intelligence officers abilities beyond mortal men. If even the most hardened members of the U.S. military gets near one of them, they go limp and spill their guts:

But further contacts between the U.S. and Cuban military have long been resisted by the U.S. government in part because of fears that Cuban intelligence officers would take advantage of U.S. military officers, said Roger Noriega.

Noriega, who until 2005 was assistant secretary of state for the Western Hemisphere, said at the conference he had ``killed that idea more than once.''
