the "sources"?)

ETB knew about Castro's communist connections because both the U.S. Ambassadors to Cuba and Mexico warned him about the connections. Okay, forget about the Benson quote. Forget I mentioned it. Perhaps it was a lapse of judgement on my part.

What about the other evidence that Castro was a communist?

On second thought, why should I apologize for quoting ETB? After all, this is an LDS religious list, is it not? In your postings with the Subject line, "Cult of Personality," you've made great noise about the fact that sometimes even General Authorities can disagree on political matters. Fine, I accept that, and believe it. Trouble is, where is the General Authority who disagrees with ETB regarding this particular issue, that of Fidel Castro being a communist? I haven't been able to find one. Perhaps there is a general consensus then?
