Dick Morris: Kerry's Aide Too Friendly to Castro
Dick Morris is spearheading a campaign to stop presumed Secretary of State John Kerry from tapping an “overt Castro sympathizer’’ to be in charge of U.S.-Cuban policy.
Morris says one of Kerry’s closest confidants is Fulton Armstrong, who has served for years as his assistant for Cuban and Latin American relations on the Senate staff of the Foreign Policy Committee.
“It is very likely that Kerry as Secretary of State will . . . put him in charge of Cuban affairs. We can’t let that happen,’’ Morris said.
“This guy is an overt Castro sympathizer who has repeatedly shown his opposition to the cause of freedom in Cuba.’’
Morris said when John Bolton was up for Ambassador to Cuba, he said there was evidence Castro was amassing biological weapons for use against the U.S. and moved to declassify a report about it.
“Fulton Armstrong opposed that and largely killed the effort to declassify it, and was heavily involved in rejecting Bolton’s nomination to be an ambassador,’’ Morris said.
Morris said the “most damning episode’’ surrounding Armstrong occurred in 1998, when he collaborated with Cuba analyst Anna Belen Montes on a report about the military implications of Castro’s Cuba.
The report stated that Cuba no longer posed a security threat to the U.S. and American policy toward Cuba should be changed
