CIA Puts Its Castro Secrets On Show

by | 23rd, June 2007

WANNA know a secret? It’s the truth. Honest:

Next week America’s spy agency will release 700 pages of documents on secret and illegal operations, which will confirm the worst suspicions of its Cold War activities.

They promise to involve assassination plots against foreign leaders, domestic spying and kidnapping and infiltration of Leftist groups from the 1950s to the 1970s. They will include accounts of break-ins and theft and “behaviour modification” experiments on “unwitting” US civilians…

In anticipation of the release, the National Security Archive at George Washington University yesterday placed four related documents on its website, which record anxious discussions in the Gerald Ford White House about the collection of papers…

Henry Kissinger, then secretary of state, told Ford he feared that “if they come out, blood will flow”, saying: “For example, Robert Kennedy personally managed the operation on the assassination of Castro.”

Castro isn’t dead. Kennedy is. Such is the power…
