Plane crash?

March 26, 2009

Two aging leaders dismissed in Cuba shake-up

Cienfuegos, 78, is the older brother of Camilo Cienfuegos, who was one of the leaders and most revered figures of the revolution that put Fidel Castro in power in 1959. Camilo Cienfuegos died in an October 1959 plane crash.

Now, where on earth did you find the evidence? Unless you have a crystal ball the remains of the plane were never found. You could as well have written that Camilo was killed by Castro for having different views!


You’re right, the plane was never found. But despite some conspiracy theories and rumors, it’s generally accepted that the plane crashed and he was on it: GBU Editor
