Michele Bachmann: Hezbollah Planning Missile Site in Cuba

Michele Bachman claims the Middle East terrorist group Hezbollah is planning on building a missile site in Cuba.

The New York Daily News reports that Bachmann was apparently referencing a report in a conservative Italian newspaper "that has not been found to have any merit." It was reported on some American blogs as well. 

"There's reports that have come out that Cuba has been working with another terrorist organization called Hezbollah," she said in Iowa on Monday. "And Hezbollah is looking at wanting to be part of missile sites in Iran and, of course, when you are 90 miles offshore from Florida, you don't want to entertain the prospect of hosting bases or sites where Hezbollah could have training camps or perhaps have missile sites or weapons sites in Cuba. This would be foolish."
