Castro on Missile Crisis: 'it wasn't worth it all

News

After calling out Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for being anti-semitic, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro seems to be having second thoughts on the way he handled the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Goldberg's colleague, James Fallows, picks up on the admission and highlights the startling part of Goldberg's interview:

I asked him, "At a certain point it seemed logical for you to recommend that the Soviets bomb the U.S. Does what you recommended still seem logical now?" He answered: "After I've seen what I've seen, and knowing what I know now, it wasn't worth it all."

The news article and both Goldberg's and Fallows's posts are worth reading.
