US President Barack Obama's "friendly smile and African-American face" are hiding Washington's sinister intentions for Latin America, Fidel Castro said Monday, in what was seen as more evidence of a new cooling in US-Cuba relations after a thaw had seemed possible just months ago. In a letter to Hugo Chavez that the Venezuelan president read at the close of a summit of leftist Latin American nations Monday, Castro said the US "empire is on the offensive again" in the region. He blamed Washington for a military coup that toppled leftist President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras in June and criticized a US agreement with Colombia that allows US troops greater access to seven of that country's military bases. "They are obviously the real intentions of the empire, this time under the friendly smile and African-American face of Barack Obama," Castro said.
