CIA and Nixon led ‘aggressive’ Cuba policy, according to FBI memo

Not long after the first anniversary of Fidel Castro coming to power,  Vice President Richard Nixon was “becoming very active and aggressive” about US. policy toward Cuba with the help of the CIA.

FBI on Nixon, CIA and Cuba

According to declassified FBI memo, CIA counterintelligence chief James Angleton, told a Bureau agent in January 1960 that agency officials had held “lengthy conversations with Nixon and other official concerning a ‘getting tough’ policy” toward Castro’s new communist government. One source expressed the belief that “the Castro problem … will not be resolved in a matter of weeks or months.”

The document comes from extraordinary collection of FBI documents: the Bureau’s file on “political matters” file related to Cuba from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s. Known the “109 file”, the documents are a chronological collection of memos, reports, and other documents on pro and anti-Castro groups in the United States under Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

As the United States and Cuba pursue normal relations in 2016, the secret history of the long conflict is finally coming to light. The 109 files illuminate why the two countries were so alienated for so long.

The documents were flushed into the open by the Assassination Archives and Research Center in Washington, DC led by Jim Lesar, the veteran Freedom of Information Act litigator.The Mary Ferrell site has posted over 10,000 pages of these files, with more to come.

Most of these records are completely unavailable elsewhere; less than 10 percent  are available at the National Archives and Records Administration or previously on the Mary Ferrell site.

    Richard Nixon and Howard Hunt were both deeply involved in Guatemala in the early-mid 1950’s, That “whole Bay of Pigs thing” in the very early 60’s and Watergate in the early-mid 70’s. They were joined by David Phillips in the first two adventures and by Frank Sturgis in the last two. Old friends.

    So in January 1960 Nixon was working with Dulles and the CIA to overthrow and/or kill Castro. Basic knowledge. This led to JFK’s inherited Bay of Pig’s fiasco and in turn the firing of Dulles, Cabell, and Bissel of the CIA. And in turn JFK’s assassination?
    A contributing factor among many.

    • Arnaldo M. Fernandez says:

      I think Nixon and the CIA started to work on “change regime” in Cuba much earlier. In Six Crises (1962), Nixon wrote:
      “The CIA was given instructions to provide arms, ammunition, and training for Cubans who had fled the Castro regimen and were now in exile. This program had been in operation for six months before the 1960 campaign got underway.” (page 352)
      The campaign began in January; six months before means August or July 1959.

      • In the eyes of the Establishment Nixon was a shoe-in as sitting Vice President. They, CIA included were counting on Nixon as the next President.

        Kennedy came along and put a big kink in the thrust towards empire. That Kennedy was the single biggest problem for the National Security State is simply too obvious to deny. That Kennedy was removed by the Establishment is equally too obvious to deny.

    From where I sit, there is serious lack of consideration of the information regarding the Hughes, MilIntel, Texas, California, Nixon etc. mechanisms of influence and action.

    From famoustexans.com comes the following cut and paste:

    Military-Industrial Complex: Throughout the 1950s, as the power of three entities grew — the Hughes empire, organized crime, and the new Central Intelligence Agency — it became all but impossible to distinguish between them. By the end of the decade, Hughes’ chief of staff, Robert Maheu, had orchestrated the CIA’s dirtiest secret — plots to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro with the help of two heads of organized crime. Vice President Richard Nixon was the White House action officer in the clandestine attempts to oust Castro. Zapata Off-Shore, the oil company owned by future CIA director and U.S. president George Bush after he split it off from Zapata Oil partner Hugh Liedtke in 1954, had a drilling rig on the Cay Sal Bank in 1958. These islands had been leased to Nixon supporter and CIA contractor Howard Hughes the previous year and were later used as a base for CIA raids on Cuba. Nixon lost the 1960 presidential election to John F. Kennedy largely because of a scandal over a never repaid $205,000 “loan” Nixon’s brother received from Hughes. As attorney general, Robert Kennedy secretly investigated the Hughes-Nixon dealings.

    After Bobby Kennedy’s assassination in 1968, Maheu and Hughes hired long-time Kennedy advisor Larry O’Brien along with other political insiders to protect their interests in Washington. In 1953, Hughes had founded the Hughes Medical Institute in Delaware as his sole act of philanthropy. By turning over all of the stock of Hughes Aircraft Company to the institute, he made his billion-dollar-a-year weapons factory a tax-exempt charity. By 1969, that scam was about to be shut down by a Senate bill, which followed an investigation by fellow Texan Wright Patman, the powerful chairman of the House Banking Committee. But O’Brien lobbied his allies and got a loophole creating an exemption for “medical research organizations” like the Hughes Medical Institute.

    Further:

    President Nixon’s downfall began when he ordered burglars to break into Larry O’Brien’s office in 1972. At the time, O’Brien was both a Hughes employee and chairman of the Democratic National Committee, headquartered in the Watergate Hotel. The Watergate burglars happened to have been heavily involved in the covert anti-Castro operations (which Nixon oversaw as vice president). They were also deeply involved in the conspiracies which grew out of those operations; conspiracies which prevented any major political future for the Kennedy family, and led directly to Nixon’s resurrection from political obscurity. The purpose of the break-in was never revealed because the Watergate scandal’s investigations were sidetracked, likely on purpose, into a focus on multiple other high crimes by Nixon. Whatever the purpose of the break-in, Hughes was right in the middle of the major forces linking the conspiracies that resulted in the murders and character assassinations of the Kennedy brothers, and the Watergate scandal that toppled the Nixon administration.

    There certainly seems to be a lot of big fish in one net here, and puts the “…whole Bay of Pigs thing…” in a much better understood perspective….

    • D. E. Mitchell says:

      “…I too, wholeheartedly agree! We need to “push”…look into the financiers of Nixon and those of the Republican Party of that time. let’s try not to think that this is all “ancient history”…this was ‘yesterday!”
      The hotel Del Charro, owned by Clint Murchison Sr. and all the characters that gathered there and at the La Costa Country Club, are all “good places to start!”
      I’d like very much to say more at this time as this is my “old stompimg ground,” but i’d better not…not at this time anyway. There are “other fish in the kettle…”-DM

  4. D. E. Mitchell says:

    “..one last thing though…another “key” to this entire puzzle(which is staring us all right in the face, we just can’t see it..same with the Z film!), we need to focus on the Mexico City Station and all the “goings on” there at that time as well! Everything came to CIA via the MC Station!”-DM
