‘Concerning the Facts and Consequences of the Tragic Death of President John F. Kennedy’

What Fidel Castro said on November 23, 1963:

Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro, tormenter of empire

“Always, when something very important has happened, national or international, we have thought it desirable to speak to the people, to express our opinions. And in every such case to express the orientation of the Government, the orientation of our Party, so that each one of us all know the attitude we should adopt in each one of these situations”

“It is true that we are somewhat accustomed to various types of unexpected events, important, serious events, because since the victory of the Revolution our country has had to face a series of problems, a series of situations that have prepared the people to carry forward their victorious revolution.”

“Therefore, because of the events of yesterday in the United States in which the President was murdered, because of the repercussion these events can have, because of the role that the United States plays in the problems of international policy, because of this, we believe that we should make a specially objective and calm analysis of these events and of their possible consequences.”

    Reading even just that little snippet really drives home the fact that Castro was a lawyer. He’d have made a superb courtroom orator had be continued in that field.

    Only irrationality can account for charging FC with any foreknowledge of the JFK assassination.

    I agree with Arnaldo that Castro was not involved with the murder of JFK. Castro was astute enough to know that the CIA was assassination heads of state through the Executive Action capability. It was the DRE that first published Oswald’s alleged ties to Russia and Cuba. The DRE, through propaganda and intimation, asserted that Castro’s agents manipulated Oswald to kill JFK. They claimed Oswald’s ties to the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, sponsored by Cuba, was direct evidence that he committed the dastardly deed. Furthermore, Oswald was a former marine defector to the Soviet Union, a communist state at the time, and this was the most damming of evidence against him as the assassin. While the DRE did not succeed in their erstwhile foray into CIA sponsored propaganda, they did inject a measure of alarm into the Kennedy Assassination. Those “leaders” of agencies monitoring and investigating the assassination did take measures to neutralize such alarmism.
    The cover-up phase did use the very alarmist propaganda to bully members to serve on the Warren Commission, the President’s appointed “fact finding” body tasked with investigating the facts surrounding JFK’s assassination. I remain amazed that the war mongers surrounding JFK during the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Berlin Wall, and the calls for escalation in Viet Nam, did not see fit to invade Cuba, or the Soviet Union. Indeed, the military was silently watching what the new Commander-in-Chief would do. Johnson managed the cover–up of the military coup d’état, but acquiesced on military demands in Viet Nam. The CIA continued attempts on Castro’s life until 1967. Perhaps the Mob connection to the CIA started to fade, or transform, because with the escalation of the Viet Nam war, the streets of America became flooded with heroin and cocaine, in epidemic proportions (this same method would repeat with wars in South America (Cocaine, 1980’s) and in Arab lands (Heroin, 1990-2015). Some would indict the whole government for JFK’s assassination, but the truth is somewhere in between agents of specific intelligence agencies, and their alliances with businesses (legitimate and underworld) and other clandestine and subversive entities. It is within this nebulous underbelly that verbal agreement are signaled and understood; orders are not given, but extend as unwritten policy with understood instructions, means, and ends. Such erudite men need not give orders or written instructions, they all know the problem and what remedy will completely resolve it. In such circles, there is a high degree of plausible deniability, and the imminent threat of death for betrayal of conspiratorial and treasonous secrets. No, Castro did not have JFK killed. Kennedy was felled by domestic forces within our government, who preordained and fingered Lee Oswald as the assassin. Ruby was recruited to silence Oswald at the behest of the MOB, who fielded the contract from the CIA or the Military (interchangeable at the time). Johnson took his cues for the Warren Commission from the erudite men of considerable repute, genteel men who represent the very “Corridors of power” that acted to remove a president (JFK) increasingly belligerent in opposing their will to dominate (read: exploit) the world, through weapons of war and mass destruction (the Cold War mentality).
