At the outset, Cubans known to me from 1957 on were Pro-Castro

as were we non-Cubans favoring that Revolutionary cause. As U.S.

policy under Eisenhower change toward Cuba,and continued with

Kennedy, U.S. Intelligence began recruiting among our ranks

{especially from within 'Castro's Network In The United States' the

Fair Play For Cuba Committee.} that was in fact a Communist controlled

front organization,which powerfully opposed U.S. policy in favor of

Castro and Cuba. After becoming an officer {secretary} of the Chicago

Fair Play {FPCC} while a member of Castro's 26th Of July Movement in

the U.S. I was swept into advising the Federal Bureau {FBI} of any

activities of both organizations. {I was con-vinced by them that it was my

patriotic duty, and, because of my involvements could be legally

charged as an Unregistered Agent of a Foreign Government} I was told

to stay in with all associates and to report all plans and actions. I did not

fail. even entering Cuba in dangerous 1960 to gather information only a

few months prior to the CIA backed invasion of Cuba 1961.

My obligation to U.S. Intelligence continued until 1965,when I refused

further association with them!

I will stop here, only to ad my regret for ever becoming involved in

any of the activities mentioned. The cost is never-ending!

Harry: Glad to hear from you. Thanks for the above postings. I too, can identifie with what you say. I was associated with the old M-26-7 on gun running to Castro, before the Palace attack by the students at the University of Havana. It seems not much is know about those early days and what really went on.

Little is known about the CIA's support of Castro and Batista during the Batista era. Sorta like playing both ends on the middle arms merchants. Its never changed to this day.

Anyway, hope you will hang around. I have a few questions concerning what is called "The Dallas Cubans" perhaps we could exchange notes on some of these players. Did you ever work with Frank. P.'s Col. #9 inside Cuba in the Mtns. with Fidel? I had some good friends there with that group. I am in the field now and have to get back to my helicopter and flap my arms. I'll be back in a few weeks. You take care. Tosh :D
