“I’ve dealt with a fairly rich number of exiles in the past but none can compare with the Cuban group for genuine stupidity and militant childishness. At times I feel sorry for Fidel Castro—a sculptor in silly putty.” (Desmond Fitzgerald, CIA head of the Cuban Task Force 1962)
Desmond Fitzgerald, (Harvard Law LL.D., Kennedy family-intimate, appointed by JFK as chief of the “Cuban Task Force” in 1962), you see, was at wits end (!!!) with Cuban exiles. These insufferable hot-heads kept trying to convince this Kennedy family favorite that–for his anti-Castro project Operation Mongoose–he was hiring a shit-load of Castro double-agents! But these insufferable crackpots warning him obviously did not qualify as Cuba “experts,” you see.
In 1987 Cuban Intelligence Officer Florentino Aspillaga defected in Prague and revealed that every Cuban agent (4 dozen of them) the CIA had recruited to spy on the Castro regime since 1962 was in fact double-agent controlled personally by Fidel Castro.
Then yesterday, here at Babalu we reported:
how as late as 1975 the U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Harvard A.B., summa cum laude 1950, M.A. 1952, PhD 1954) was personally autographing expensive Rolex watches to thank some of these agents for their invaluable service to the U.S.!
