I reckon this is wishful thinking on the part of the CIA. No concrete evidence to back it up.
The CIA believes Fidel Castro has Parkinson's Disease. The agency says that according to observations of his recent public appearances he does seem to have Parkinson's and his condition has progressed.
Fidel Castro is 79.
Authorities in Cuba say Fidel is in good health. However, when asked, they did not make any comments on whether or not he has Parkinson's.
Throughout much of Castro's life, rumors have been rife about his health. Recently, he said nobody would believe the story when he really dies one day.
Fidel Castro has ruled Cuba for 46 years, longer than any other head of government in the world today. If he were to die, it is thought his brother, Raul Castro, 74, would take over.
