I would not discount the possibility that Fidel set a trap for Mr. Fox early
on, in anticipation of just such a NON-invitation, by creating evidence that
he might or might not have used, depending on how matters developed.
However, I don't believe Fidel would have released the tapes and risked a
severed relationship with Mexico, had he not believed that he (and Cuba) had
a chance of *gaining* politically from the revelation.

With the victory of the people and Chavez' return to power, it may be that
Fidel sees an opportunity to drive a wedge in the crack of support for the
U.S. government and their proxy supporters in Latin America, by appealing
directly to the people.
