Pages 22 to 23 , May 2, 2017 have the entire top of pages with long bold "Cuban exile reveals his role in CIA's covert war on Fidel & agency's 'link' to JFK murder " .

It is by Larry Getlen.

It is about a CIA trained assassin who had high power moles in positions of power in Castro's government. He was able to get a friend in the Finance Ministry to write a law that deliberately created "predictable chaos, as millions of Cuban's [after being tricked, ] withdrew their money from banks" in an act of "economic sabotage ".

This trained assassin used inside job tactics to get fake laws written to cause 14,000 children to flee Cuba in Operation Pedro Pan.

The highly credible assassin is Antonio Veciana , a man that was known by the CIA to be an anti-Castro Cuban before he was even approached by the American spy agency. But agent "Maurice Bishop " made the rendezvous.


Pages 22-23

Antonio Veciana was a "skinny, asthmatic " CPA in Cuba when he was approached in September 1959 by a man calling himself Maurice Bishop.
Thus begins a tale... As he details in his new book... Veciana became a counterrevolutionary, spending the next few decades attempting... to sabotage the Cuban government and kill its leader.
In February 1976, he was called to testify in front of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. He told them everything about his time with Bishop, including what he suspected was a possible tie between US intelligence and JFKs assassination.

In 1963, 11 weeks before President Kennedy was murdered, Bishop asked Veciana to meet him in Dallas. Veciana claims that when he arrived, Bishop was meeting with a shy, quite man who didn't speak in his presence and left after five minutes. When Kennedy was killed and Lee Harvey Oswald''s picture was shown on the news, Veciana says, he remembered him as the man Bishop met with in Dallas.

After sharing this information with the committee, Veciana spoke with investigator Gaeton Fonzi numerous times over the next three years. Fonzi had him meet with a police sketch artist in an attempt to identify Bishop, and later, Sen. Richard Schweiker told Fonzi that the sketch "reminded him of David Atlee Phillips, " an officer in the CIA.

Fonzi arranged for them to meet, but Phillips and Veciana claimed they didn't know each other. Fonzi wrote that Phillips was Bishop in his 1993 book about the inquiry, "The Last Investigation, " but Veciana didn't publicly confirm this until 2014, when he did so at a conference held by the Assassination Archives and Research Center for the 50th anniversary of the release of the Warren Commission Report. This book marks the first time Veciana, who lives in Miami, has shared the story in its entirety.

Antonio Veciana was a man of interest for 4 decades , before his 2014 testimony, and he is very much a man who forces us to ddeal with and consider. His truth or dishonesty in this matter is literally the difference between smoking gun evidence against the CIA or a false testimony. If his story is truthful, then I assume he correctly remembered seeing Oswald 11 weeks earlier than his seeing his picture on the television in November 63. I suppose the current testimony of Veciana could be honest but the identification he made in November 1963 was an incorrect , but honest , mistake, based on faulty memories of a brief September 63 meeting.

Investigative reporting is in short supply, due to severe shortage of interest, among the American people, in purchasing and reading serious nonfiction news. Much of the story here has been investigated, by credible and able investigative agents, over the decades, so this revealing book, from the hand of the historic individual who is himself the very subject of the government investigators interest , is valuable enough that the NY Post was able to do a good story simply by reading the book straight from the horse's mouth.

This bargain story about a monumentally important set of historical events raises alot of thought.

The Post aside, I suspect that the media will never give this historic individual the attention he and his story deserves.

It is a sad commentary on our culture.

We will spend alot of time bashing immigrants who are forced to migrate here and we will spend alot of time and money attacking the country that they came from, but won't look at our harmful involvement in the world events .

We deliberately created refugees from Cuba to the ends of the Earth and that gets left out of the discussion when we bash immigrants. That should be (only ) the beginning of the media story, but we never get the all important details at all, much less the even deeper depths our government has sunk to.

New York Post?
JFK conspiracy theory from the New York Post.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Seems to me if its clear that certain things that require ancient dates couldn't possibly be true, we are on our way to throwing out all those ancient dates on the basis of the actual evidence. -- Faith

Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000

Re: New York Post?
The NY Post article can be found online.

I don't know how much longer it will be there.


The story is very telling about how we operate.

The JFK issue is very much a side issue aside from the extreme importance.

I'm so happy that this individual lived long enough to tell his story.

We need to become informed about our dangerous international schemes that nearly got the whole world destroyed.

Air Force leader General Curtis LeMay attacked Kennedy for being weak as the Cuban Missile Crisis was simmering. There was a coup like atmosphere and the General advocated all out nuclear war. He said we were superior and would loose 100 million less people in the exchange.

We have to know the goings on during this critical period.

The Post is to be commended for the coverage of the most important historical events we all are unaware of.

Here is a link to story. (hope it works)

Here is the Wikipedia link to Gaeon Fonzi.


David Atlee Phillips


Then Veciana.


The Atlee Phillips issue is the most interesting because the evidence is quite strong that he went by the name Maurice Bishop (see Wikipedia link). Regardless of the separate issue of Veciana telling the truth. Or when exactly he was telling the truth (in 1976 or 2014).


This is the year that the George Joannides files will be declassified. I suppose.


This has always been an individual whose files could offer evidence that the CIA was much closer to Oswald than we have been led to believe.

If one reads the New York Post article, then we can see just how ruthless these CIA individuals were. To the Cubans anyway. In Cuba anyway.

It is overseas that this murderous brutality was performed, admitted.


These CIA characters clearly had a presence in this country too.

Why have we always assumed that they behave differently when they cross back over the border?

Is there something magical in the air, over here, which causes us to think that they become a bunch of nice little boys that play fair so nobody gets hurt on the (50 state American playground?

They murder, murder, murder overseas.

But not here?

1963 Dallas wasn't some enlightened place, for starters. Who says the CIA couldn't have quickly - and quietly - hired some hands to pull a trigger or two?
