President Fidel Castro called the U.S. airstrike that killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi a “barbarity,” saying he should have been put on trial.
The United States acted as “judge and jury” against the leader of the al-Qaida in Iraq, Castro said late Friday.
“They bragged, they were practically drunk with happiness.”
“The accused cannot just be eliminated,” he told a literacy conference. “This barbarity cannot be done.”
Getting a lecture from Castro on the rule of law is like getting a lesson from Michael Jackson on child care.
