Eisenhower, who preceded Kennedy, was vehemently negative towards Cuba and Castro. Plots were hatched and set in motion by the CIA that would take fruition under Kennedy, and without his knowledge. As noted earlier this year by Robert Kennedy Jr., in his article published by IPS, “Sabotaging U.S.-Cuba Détente in the Kennedy Era,” :
To the CIA, détente was perfidious sedition. Adlai Stevenson [at the time U.S. ambassador to the United Nations] had warned President John F. Kennedy that “unfortunately the CIA is still in charge of Cuba.” The agency, he said, would never allow normalisation of relations.
JFK was involved in secret negotiations with Fidel Castro designed to outflank Foggy Bottom [Washington] and the agents at Langley [CIA], but the CIA knew of JFK’s back-channel contacts with Castro and endeavoured to sabotage the peace efforts with cloak and dagger mischief.
In April 1963, CIA officials secretly sprinkled deadly poison in a wetsuit intended as a gift for Castro from JFK’s emissaries James Donovan and John Nolan, hoping to murder Castro, blame JFK for the murder, and thoroughly discredit him and his peace efforts.
The agency also delivered a poison pen to hit man Rolendo Cubelo in Paris, with instructions that he use it to murder Fidel. William Attwood [a former journalist and U.S. diplomat attached to the United Nations asked by JFK to open up secret negotiations with Castro] later said that the CIA’s attitude was: “To hell with the President it was pledged to serve.”“There is no doubt in my mind. If there had been no assassination, we probably would have moved into negotiations leading to a normalisation of relations with Cuba” – William Attwood, U.S. diplomat asked by John F. Kennedy to open secret negotiations with Castro, speaking of JFK’s assassination.”
Many exile leaders openly expressed their disgust with the White House “treachery”, accusing JFK of engaging in “co-existence” with Fidel Castro. Some Cubans remained loyal to my father, but a small number of hard, bitter homicidal Castro haters now directed their fury toward JFK and there is credible evidence that these men and their CIA handlers may have been involved in plots to assassinate him.
The Kennedy guilt – both President John Kennedy and then Attorney General Robert Kennedy -over The Bay of Pigs misadventure lies in the nasty truth that the Bay of Pigs invasion was set up as a CIA plot and was not known at the time to JFK. JFK hesitated at the point of an actual strike and unwittingly foiled the CIA plot. Regardless of that, as noted above, the CIA was furious and continued their effirts to undermine relations between the US and Cuba, and until this spring we have continued operating under this ruse as if it were reality.
The CIA was willing to hoax the US into nuclear war, nuclear war, and two formally powerful men – one a President and the other the US Attorney General – both ended up assassinated. Here is certainly not the place to get into who was “really” behind the Kennedy assassinations, but the synchronicity leaves a sour taste in one’s mouth.
Without further discussion, here is Jimmie Moglia:
