Cuban President Raul Castro went off on U.S. policy towards Cuba in his Summit of the Americas speech today, before apologizing to President Obama and absolving him of any blame in the matter.
And then, for some reason, Castro ended up apologizing to Obama. He said, “I apologize to Obama for expressing myself so emotionally. President Obama has no responsibility for this. There were 10 presidents before him; all have a debt to us, but not President Obama.”
He even pointed out that Obama was born after the conflict originally began, a point Obama himself made when he spoke.
Castro also took some time to personally praise Obama and call him an honest man. You can watch part of what he said below, via CNN:
