What you should do is write a scathing attack in the guise of a "Review." In other words say it was boring, Castro's dead, disinformation, you wouldn't waste money on the book, etc. The reviews are usually half-way down the page of the book.

Fidel Castro is still alive at age 86, but his power has probably passed to someone else in the Cuban government.

The return of "Castro did it" theory

by Jefferson Morley

March 22, 2012

Excerpt:

The charge is sensational because Latell is the highest-ranking former CIA official to ever accuse the Cuban leader of personal responsibility for JFK’s death. It is uncorroborated because much of the evidence Latell cites in the book is not in the public record or available to JFK scholars. Even the CIA is keeping its distance. When I asked the Agency to comment on Latell’s thesis on Wednesday, a spokesperson replied, “You can report the CIA declined comment.”

Still, Latell is a former CIA official in good standing, and his allegations signal the CIA may be changing its institutional position on the causes of JFK’s death. As the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death approaches in 2013, Latell’s book indicates the Agency defenders are moving toward “a modified limited hangout” — Washington lingo for a public relations maneuver to release previously hidden information in the service of preventing exposure of more damning detail.

For most of the past five decades the institutional posture of the CIA has said that there is no evidence of conspiracy in Kennedy’s death and no evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald, a known leftist, acted at Castro’s behest. In 1967, CIA director Richard Helms sent an order to every CIA station in the world ordering them to take steps to combat speculation about Oswald’s motives and associations. The Agency’s line echoed the Warren Commission: that Oswald had killed JFK for reasons known only to himself and anybody who thought differently was irrational or anti-American or both. If Latell, a career CIA employee, had written his book in the 1960s or 1970s, he would have been fired.

JFKCountercoup2: Aspillaga at Lourdes?

Jeff Morley wrote: "Latell's most intriguing contribution is the testimony of Florentino Aspillaga, a career General Directorate of Intelligence officer who defected to the United States in 1987. Latell interviewed him extensively in 2007 and 2008, and found him unusually credible on the workings of the Cuban security forces. Aspillaga told Latell that on Nov. 22, 1963, he was manning a Cuban radio monitoring station that usually focused on Miami or Langley. His bosses, he said, made an unusual request that day: monitor the airwaves in Texas. Soon came the shocking news that JFK had been killed in Dallas."

"Castro knew," Aspillaga is quoted as saying. "They knew Kennedy would be killed."

If Castro knewJFK would be killed, he could have learned of the plot from the anti-Castro groups that his G2 had penetrated, but knowing JFK was visiting Texas and asking COMIT agents to focus on Texas is not expressing foreknowledge of the assassination, only that JFK was there. So Aspillaga's conclusion is off, and intentionally misinterpreted by the CIA disinformation agent – Latell, but it is important nonetheless in that it indicates they were intentionally targeting the Texas communications, as we are just beginning to study in depth today.

I'd like toknow – did Aspillaga work at the Cuban radio communications facility at Lourdes?

If Castro learned of the assassination from radio communications, and he had instructed his radio operators to listen specifically to Texas broadcasts, perhaps the Cubans have a copy of the Air Force One radio transmissions that our government has apparently lost.

If Latell'sprimary source – Aspillaga did work at a Cuban radio base station that attempted to intercept American radio communications, then he probably worked at Lourdes radio communications intercept center, which was set up by the Soviets and used the state-of-the-art equipment the Russians had developed.

I had previously considered the idea that this Cuban facility listened in and probably recorded the Air Force One radio communications, and wondered if it was feasible to ask the Cubans for their copy of the AF1 radio communications they taped. Towards that end I exchanged emails with Dave Emery, an American radio communications specialist who had written a research article on the Cuban radio intercept station at Lourdes.

I told Emery about the missing Air Force One radio transmission tapes and asked him if the NSA or the Cubans at Lourdeswould likely have a copy.

He responded: I find it rather surprising, even amazing,that the NSA would admit to having ever had a copy of that traffic. I believethey no doubt did (have it), but there I quite a bit of sensitivity to a USgovernment agency intercepting high level US traffic, and it is not clear to meunder what operational directive they ran such a Mystic Star monitoringoperation.

Back then it would have actually taken an operator or two dialing in frequencies on the R-390As and recording everything on tape – and I am most intrigued if you got them to admit to having assigned such to Mystic Star in November 1963.

One supposes that once the news of the assassination became known within NSA (ASA/AFSS/NSG etc.) monitoring facilities some of the operators looked for the Mystic Star traffic and listened to it (military discipline aside, I am sure there were people curious enough to break the rules under the circumstances). And given that the intercept positions had tape gear, probably there were tapes made on the QT. But for anyone to admit to their existence is quite another matter.

I do know that continuous Crown patches on the AF-1 primaryand secondary hi frequencies were almost certainly recorded by WHCA at theWhite House com center and probably also at Andrews com center Mystic Staroperators.

It seems inconceivable that these tapes weren't carefully saved, and probably played over by insiders many times. Of course considering the various conspiracy theories (and remotely possible also the presence of areal conspiracy) it follows that these tapes may have been edited ordeliberately destroyed, or locked up under seal for another 50 years orwhatever.

I have almost total certainty that WHCA and or the 89th SAM com operators had such tapes from the actual radios used to communicate with the plane – I would not consider it even remotely conceivable they weren't routinely taping the lines.

While I know that I unlikely, I've considered the possibly that the Cubans/Russians picked it up and may have intercepted the traffic. Whether this was done from Cuba at Lourdes or from the Soviet Embassy in Washington (or both) is less clear. Frankly considering what sometimes was said over Mystic Star in the clear in that era, it seems beyond doubt that the Soviets would have found it worthwhile to assign operators to routinely monitor the traffic and almost certainly record what they intercepted on tape for later translation, playing for leadership and whatever. The recent Mitroysin Archive book specifically mentions Soviet monitoring of VIP communications from aircraft, including such monitoring from the Soviet diplomatic facilities in the DC and NY areas.

And whilst the Russians were sometimes slow on the up take and the Mitroshin stuff mentions the Kissinger era, I find it rather hard to believe that they didn't know about and follow Mysitc Star practically from its inception.

G. Robert Blakey: "I no longer believe that we were able to conduct an appropriate investigation of the [Central Intelligence] Agency and its relationship to Oswald.... I do not believe any denial offeredby the Agency on any point. The law has long followed the rule that if a personlies to you on one point, you may reject all of his testimony.... We now know that the Agency withheld from the Warren Commission the CIA-Mafia plots to kill Castro. Had the commission known of the plots, it would have followed a different path in its investigation.... We also now know that the Agency set up a process that could only have been designed to frustrate the ability of the committee in 1976-79 to obtain any information that might adversely affect the Agency. Many have told me that the culture of the Agencyis one of prevarication and dissimulation and that you cannot trust it or its people. Period. End of story. I am now in that camp." --Robert Blakey, staff director and chief counsel for the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations, statement from 2003

Richard Sprague: "If he had it to do over again, he would begin his investigation of the Kennedy assassination by probing 'Oswald's ties to the Central Intelligence Agency.'" --Richard Sprague, first staff director and chief counsel to the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations, statement to Sam Anson of New Times magazine, cited by Gaeton Fonzi, The Last Investigation.
