At Warren Commission conference, a Cuban militant tells his Oswald story

via Josh Mittledorf on VENITISM: THE JFK ASSASSINATION, an opinionated account of the AARC conference on the 50th anniversary of the Warren Commission, held in Washington last weekend.

“In the day’s high point,” he writes, “we heard a first-hand confirmation of CIA primacy in the plot…..”

Antonio Veciana

“Antonio Veciana, now 86 years old and infirm, was a Cuban exile and anti-Castro activist, recruited by CIA personnel. (He spoke through a translator yesterday, though his English is not so bad.) He had heard through his handlers of the assassination plot in 1963, which at the time he thought to be justified by JFK’s softness on Castro.

“A few years later, he came to a more sympathetic view of JFK, and regretted not having spoken up when he could. But he has waited until this year to bare his history and speak out.”
