“As far as I know, (f)idel (c)astro does not have cancer.” This is a translation of the first part of the above sentence, uttered by Dr. José Luis García Sabrido, the communist doctor that was flown to Cuba from Spain by the Cuban authorities to examine the cancer that has governed Cuba for almost 48 years. In the doctor’s opinion, the cancer does not have cancer. Where are the facts? Where is the scientific data that show beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no cancer? Of course, data can be fabricated, and perhaps the doctorcito is not willing to sacrifice it all for the old dying-saur.
