A new book by ex CIA officer Brian Latell claims that Fidel Castro knew about Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination plot. Latell got this information from Cuban intelligence defectors.
Fidel Castro knew of plans to kill President John Kennedy, according to a book due out next month by a retired CIA analyst, the Miami Herald reported.
The book, “Castro’s Secrets: The CIA and Cuba’s Intelligence Machine” by Brian Latell, is based on interviews with Cuban spies who defected and on declassified documents from a variety of U.S. agencies, including the CIA, the FBI and the Pentagon.
Latell writes that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald told Cuban intelligence officers he planned to kill Kennedy. “Fidel knew of Oswald’s intentions — and did nothing to deter the act,” the author writes.
This is very plausible.
