Great photographs James. Did they come from the Cuban archives?

Tony Summers' Conspiracy talks about Lisa a good deal also. It is this book that first brought her to

my attention in the early 80's.

Have you seen this passage from William Attwood's The Twilight Struggle: Tales of the Cold War (the last two paragraphs are very interesting):

What part, if any, our Cuban gambit played in Kennedy's assassination is the kind of question that now seems pointless to raise. While we kept the exercise under wraps (apparently not even the secretary of state was fully apprised), the CIA must have had an inkling of what was happening from phone taps and surveillance of Lechuga. The news could then have trickled down to the frustrated Bay of Pigs veterans still huddled around their CIA case officers, still hoping for another invasion attempt. An accommodation would have dashed these hopes. Many Cuban adventurers like Frank Fiorini, alias Frank Sturgis, who would wind up working the catacombs of Watergate, could easily have been aroused by what Schlesinger has referred to as "a broadside of unknown origin that told Cuban exiles in Miami that 'only one development' would return them to their homeland - 'if an inspired Act of God should place in the White House within weeks a Texan known to be a friend of all Latin Americans."'

Aroused enough to help perform the "act"? I don't know and don't care to speculate about it.

One of the major problems for those trying to investigate the assassination is that insiders like William Attwood took the view that it was best not to dig too deep. As Attwood said: "Aroused enough to help perform the "act"? I don't know and don't care to speculate about it."

As for the "motive" for committing the "act."

"...could easily have been aroused by what Schlesinger has referred to as "a broadside of unknown origin that told Cuban exiles in Miami that 'only one development' would return them to their homeland - 'if an inspired Act of God should place in the White House within weeks a Texan known to be a friend of all Latin Americans."'

At one time I used this "broadside" on the list of those who expressed foreknowldge - or threats of assassination, and Larry Hancock expressed interest in its source.

Attwood mentions Schlesinger quotes from it, and perhaps his footnote, if any, could take it a step further. But I remember seeing an original leaflet, a type of folded brouchour from a right-wing org like the John Birch Society, though I'm sure it wasn't them, but some org like them.

It is reminiscent of the type of propaganda being distributed in Cuba, leaflets dropped from planes and the aborted balloon project (See: Coup Administrative Details - non-violent propaganda scheme that went forward until killed at the last minute by Edward R. Morrow, then a Kennedy agency director).

The first propaganda plan from this session:

1. Balloon Operations Over Havana {BOH} – The plan is well underway. Assuring the winds are right, CIA proposes to release balloons containing 300,000 to 500,000 leaflets on May Day [3. A holiday in honor of workers.] (before daylight). The balloons will not be visible by radar or by the naked eye. The leaflets will (1) attack Castro’s henchmen, and (2) contain cartoons illustrating sabotage techniques. The decision on the balloons is scheduled for another review during the week preceeding May Day.

Once Ed Morrow nixed that deal, they still had the half million leaflets or the ability to produce them.

As for the Cuban raiders, if any homicide detective followed any one of the dozen or so Collins Radio connectons from the assassination, to the New York Times of November 1, 1963, which ran a front page photo of the CIA raider REX, and noted its associaiton with Collins Radio, they would have wanted to know the identities of the 40 Mambasis commandos and their alibi for November 22.

Bill Turner: “There were oversized searchlights, elaborate electronic gear…and a large crain on the aft deck capable of raising and lowering twenty-foot speedboats….two 40-mm. Naval cannon, a 57-mm recoilless rifle, and two 20-mm cannon. According to Pepe, the forty seamen, all Cubans, were paid $300 a month by the CIA….When a mission was scheduled, they received a phone call, then a nondescript CIA van picked them up and took them to the West Palm Beach berth {BK Note: not far for the Kennedy family home and compound} where the Rex was tied up. The dockage fees were paid by a CIA front, Sea Key Shipping Company, which operated out of a post office box…Captain Alejandro Brooks, ….awaited the arrival of Gordon Campbell, the CIA’s director of Naval operations to arrive with orders for the night’s mission….The men belonged to the Commandos Mambises,…the CIA’s elite, the Green Berets of the Secret War. They were led by Major Manuel Villafana, a spit-and-polish officer who had commanded the Bay of Pigs Air Force. Villafana insisted his men be low paid because he wanted them driven by hate, not money.”

“The target on this mission was the giant Matahambre copper mine near Cape Corriente on the bootheel of Pinar del Rio Provence….when the Rex arrived at the landing zone, there was a sense of foreboding….it was a trap….Two days later…Fidel Castro appeared on Havana television to describe the Rex…and brought on stage two of the missing men, Rex quartermaster Luis Montera Carranzana, who had piloted a Moppie, and Dr. Clemente Inclan Werner, a Mambise…White House press secretary Pierre Salinger: “We have nothing to say.”

The Cubans felt betrayed, and JFK was the rat, especially so if they were made privy to the Attwood-Lechuga talks.

These Cubans had no qualms about turning their high powered weapons around and killing JFK instead of Castro, especially if they were given the green light and orders from their CIA-Military commanders.

I have always been interested in the identity of the "author" of the "inspired act of God" document. I will go so far as to theorize that in my estimation, if the author of such a document was a well known name [familiar to many researchers, as opposed to being composed in some psychological warfare office,] it was probably Charles Willoughby, key words and passages "Oriental influence, Zionists, a Texan who resents."

The date this document surfaced was according to Dick Russell, April 18, 1963. If memory serves correctly, William

See The Man Who Knew Too Much original edition pages 299-300.

Manchester also mentioned this document in Death of A President.

But more to the point, the following link describes some similar verbage, as well as something called Operation Alpha 66

Maybe Dick Russell knew this, but did you know that the April 1963, flyer that was circulated among the Cuban-exile community, referenced in the previous posts, according to the following document, was actually, originally a letter recieved by Tony Questa, that was postmarked from Arlington,Texas.
