Fidel Castro TV series charts 638 assassination attempts

He Who Must Live documents Cuban leader's escapes from

bacteria-infected hankie, exploding cigar and poisoned wetsuit

Illness has forced him from public view but Fidel Castro is back in Cuban living rooms via a lavish

television series that celebrates his escape from 638 assassination plots.

The eight-part series, He Who Must Live is an extravagant departure from Cuban TV's typically low-budget fare:

more than 1,000 actors and extras are used in a mix of CSI-type fiction, docu-drama and archive material.

The interior ministry, institute of police sciences and state-sanctioned film-makers teamed up to tell the story

of how the CIA spent decades trying to murder the US's tropical communist foe....

Is this series a remake of the political documentary entitled "638 Ways To Kill Castro"?

Yes, Peter, most interesting. I've read the book and for some reason the 638 ways do NOT include a number of attempts that are directly connected to what happened at Dealey Plaza. Those are the attempts to kill Castro that need to be reviewed more closely.

The others are just theater.

Bill, anything at all about Operation Northwoods?

A sanctioned member of the cuban civil services, speaking for the Cuban people would, if possible, be a great asset to this forum. Otherwise Granma International English version published on the net from Cuba is a wealth of information.

It's also strange that the texas based repository of Castros speaches during this time is seemingly incomplete.

Bill, anything at all about Operation Northwoods?

Kennedy canned those who proposed Northwoods, but the military still worked on some variations of it, most notably the Contingency Plans for a Coup in Cuba (See: Califano Papers) and those out of JMWAVE, where the miliary (LeMay/Krulak) worked hand in glove with the CIA, especially in the Maritime operations, which were directly related to Dealey Plaza through the Cuban commando teams (ie. Clare Booth Luce's Julio Fernandez, Brad Ayers, et al), and their cover company Collins Radio, among other connections.

Those who say Bobby Kennedy knew or ordered assassination plots/teams - mostly ex-CIA officers, also lead you directly to specific plots that "backfired" at Dealey Plaza, and none of these are delt with in the book.

Northwoods was a black psychop designed to instigate a new level of combat in Cuba, but LBJ, knowing these ops were what was used to wack JFK, wanted nothing to do with Cuba, so he gave the military their war in Vietnam, and they instigated it through a standard Northwoods operation - Tonkin Gulf, another lie that Life Mag also endorsed.

From the article in the Guardian:

"The series took three years, 243 actors, 800 extras and a possibly significant chunk of Cuban TV's spartan film-making budget."

Make work projects have been all the rage since the financial meltdown. Who would begrudge the Cubans for doing the same thing!

Hopefully, I will be able to view this mini-series at some point in time via DVD, internet video or a torrent (as is 638).

Any oddsmaker in 1960 who deigned to suggest that the probability of President Kennedy being felled was infinitely greater than the offing of Castro

would have been accused of squeaking and gibbering in the street.

When are people going to admit that Fidel Castro is dead.
