No, really? A new British documentary quotes Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) as saying that she wants Fidel Castro assassinated. Ros-Lehtinen insists she never said any such thing -- but adds she wouldn't be upset if someone did assassinate Fidel. You can't make this stuff up. The AP says:

Still, [Ros-Lehtinen] said it was possible she has, at some point, mentioned Castro's potential assassination.

"If someone were to do it, I wouldn't be crying," she said.


The congresswoman said she's not shy about wanting Castro dead.

"No one advocates assassination," she said. "What we are advocating for is free elections, freedom for political prisoners, free expression of ideas and respect for human rights. That's how you get change in Cuba. Not assassination."
