Fidel Castro had advance knowledge that President John F Kennedy was about to be killed, according to an explosive new book about the 1963 assassination soon to be published by a retired CIA agent.

Rumours about the Cuban dictator’s involvement in a plot to murder his fierce adversary have swirled for almost half a century since communist sympathiser Lee Harvey Oswald shot the US president during a trip to Dallas in November that year.

Now author Brian Latell, who studied Cuban affairs as a CIA analyst in the 1960s and later became the agency’s chief intelligence officer for Latin America, says he is certain that Castro at least knew the attack was going to happen.

On the morning of November 22, 1963, the day Kennedy was killed, Castro ordered a senior intelligence officer in Havana to stop listening for non-specific CIA radio communications and concentrate instead on ‘any little detail, any small detail from Texas,’ Mr Latell claims in his new book Castro’s Secrets – the CIA and Cuba’s Intelligence Machine, set for release next month.

Four hours later, the airwaves came alive with news that Kennedy was dead.

Mr Latell also claims that Castro was aware that Oswald, who had been denied a visa to visit Cuba at the country’s embassy in Mexico City, told staff there that he was going to murder Kennedy to prove his allegiance to the communist cause.

‘Fidel knew of Oswald’s intentions and did nothing to deter the act,’ Mr Latell writes in the book.

In an interview published today in The Miami Herald, Mr Latell, now a respected senior lecturer on Cuba at the University of Miami, says he discovered the information in interviews with former Cuban intelligence officers, backed up by declassified US government documents.

‘I don’t say Fidel Castro ordered the assassination, I don’t say Oswald was under his control. He might have been, but I don’t argue that, because I was unable to find any evidence for that,’ he said.

‘[But] everything I write is backed up by documents and on-the-record sources.

‘Did Fidel want Kennedy dead? Yes. He feared Kennedy. And he knew Kennedy was gunning for him. In Fidel’s mind, he was probably acting in self-defence.’

Mr Latell’s book, billed as the first in-depth study of Castro’s intelligence operations in the years after the Marxist revolutionary seized power in a 1959 coup, says there is other strong supporting evidence.

It claims, for instance, that CIA wiretaps of Cuban intelligence agents in the immediate aftermath of the assassination revealed that they already had surprising level of knowledge of Oswald’s background when only scant details had been reported by the media.

But it is Mr Latell’s interview with former Cuban intelligence officer Fiorentino Aspillaga Lombard, who was in charge of Castro’s listeners at his Havana compound, which will raise eyebrows.

Aspillaga, who defected to the US in 1987, told the author that he informed the CIA at his debriefing that Castro personally issued the order to listen specifically for anything about Texas.

But that information was never revealed publicly, and he never repeated it until he was interviewed for the book.

After his defection, Aspillaga lifted the lid on Castro’s lavish lifestyle, giving details of his fleet of luxury yachts, numerous lavish properties in each of Cuba’s provinces and a secret Swiss bank account containing millions of dollars.

But he said that while the population realised that ‘Fidel has ruined Cuba’, a fear of their leader meant few would ever speak up. ‘Who can sanction Castro? What parliament or national assembly can ask for an explanation of what is done with that money?’ he said.

The claim that Castro was aware of Oswald’s promise to Cuban embassy officials that he was going to murder Kennedy comes from several sources, including a former FBI informant and ‘superspy’ Jack Childs, who penetrated the dictator’s inner circle.

Childs said that Castro told him that Oswald ‘stormed into the embassy, demanded the visa, and when it was refused to him headed out saying, ‘I’m going to kill Kennedy for this’.’

Meanwhile, Castro was claiming publicly that Oswald’s visit to the embassy was ‘a minor matter’ that had not been noticed by senior officials in Havana.

Subsequent investigations by the US security agencies, and the official Warren Commission inquiry into Kennedy’s assassination, looked at Castro’s possible involvement but concluded that Oswald was a lone gunman acting independently.

Among other issues discussed in Mr Latell’s book are the CIA’s own attempts to assassinate Castro using a variety of methods, including exploding cigars and poison pens. He says the efforts were called off after Kennedy died.


    Temporal Coadjutor Fidel Castro had nothing to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The same President which stopped the operation against Cuba that 03:15 hours of that infamous day. The very reason Frank Fiorini hated President John F. Kennedy’s guts for putting him and his team of cretins out in the cold with no backup in Cuba. For this Fiorini one of the World’s greatest jackal assassins would make sure he was involved in any assassination attempt on President John F. Kennedy. Fiorini and one of his aides were present at the infamous Grassy Knoll diversion.

    The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was ordered by Privy Councilors John Hobson and Reginald Bevins amongst others in secret. The main hits were done by the Permanent Industrial Exposition hit team paid through the Bank of Montreal by Reginald Bevins. The hit was nothing to do with Castro and all to do with The Worshipful Company of Mercers and their Jesuit commanders. They could not afford President John F. Kennedy reviving the Nation of Land called the united States of America. This once great Nation of Land was temporary destroyed in 1861 by President Abraham Lincoln. Why? A very well thought out maneuver by Lincoln and his advisors in order to attempt to stop The Worshipful Company of Mercers via the Virginia Company of London taking American soil for payment of their origin setting up of the region. Lincoln also created the Greenback to aid in this process. Once the Nation of Land was stopped and the area had now become a corporation this meant that the united States of America Constitution was no longer standing. This was seen by the Jesuit Order and Knights of Malta as their perfect opportunity to use their strong-arm proxy New Jerusalem aka City of London to take full control and permanently keep the corporate status. This was just the right time for Privy Councilor Roundell Palmer to sign off on the death warrant against Abraham Lincoln. Once again the Bank of Montreal funded the assassin via Privy Councilor, Edward Stanley. The assassin was paid £60 and his name was John Wilkes Booth the ancestor of Roman Catholic Cherie Blair the current wife of Knight of Malta, Tony Blair.

    President John F. Kennedy was about to radically change the dire situation in the corporation of the United States. He’d already smashed up the Knight of Malta operation of World Commerce Corporation and was threatening to destroy the Federal Reserve, Central Intelligence Agency, Vietnamese War and stop the 51st U.S State of Israel having nuclear weaponry. Israel is funded by the Federal Reserve and is controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations. Cardinal Francis Spellman and The Worshipful Company of Mercers could not lose their Federal Reserve with which they were militarily planning on using to take over the Earth. You see the British Empire never died, it simple went underground and decided to use a proxy command in Washington D.C. creating a 14th Amendment U.S Empire. This Empire in the region is controlled covertly by Jesuit Georgetown University.

    Most of what you witness today could never occur without the Federal Reserve of New York system being the private bank issuing the Federal Reserve note private currency of the United States corporation. Most intelligence networks knew the hit was coming on President John F. Kennedy because many of them were all there to witness the event. No different to all the witnesses to the 9/11 event there to document the event live such as the Israeli and French Intelligence, the latter using the Amec Plc created studio nearby in New York City. This should highlight to you how the Knights of Malta command all these agencies and when it really comes down to it they will all buckle up and do as they are told. You may find of interest the presence of Nazi Otto Skorenzy at the JFK assassination and the connections with the Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst which has now been run by Knight of Malta, George H.W Bush for the last thirty-four years whilst not forgetting his presence at Scottish Rite controlled Dealey Plazza that day too.

    First of all there was no Lee Harvey Oswald as that being did not exist, there was a Lee Oswald and he was the one used as the patsy man-in-the-middle. They forget to tell you that the same Lee Oswald saved John F. Kennedy’s life from another planned assassination attempt not long prior to the final event. Why do you think they threw Lee Oswald to the wolves in the first place? He had stopped their evil deeds in the past and this time he had to pay by taking the fall but he then had to be removed completely because he would have definitely have talked as proven once before already.
