Raul Castro Claims Innocence

Continuing with his brother Fidel's "History will Absolve Me" theme, as he faces accusations of having allowed a political prisoner to die after an 86 day hunger strike, Cuba's Raul Castro attempted to reassure the world, declaring:
"In half a century, we have not murdered anyone here, we have tortured no one here, we have not carried out any extra-judicial execution. Well, here in Cuba there have been tortures, but they have taken place at the Guantanamo Naval Base, not on territory governed by the Revolution."
What Raul Castro forgot to add goes something like this:
"And if you don't believe me there's nothing you can do about it. If any Cuban doesn't believe me, there is nothing he or she can do about it either. Understand this: my brother is absolute lord of Cuba and everything and everyone here report to him, and he reports to no one. He cannot be tried and I cannot be tried. Whoever accuses either of us of anything is a counterrevolutionary, and it is he or she who will be tried and condemned. No one here has the authority and power to condemn us. Therefore, we are both absolutely innocent."
