Carol Burnett Show? (Or Castro Julio 26 officials–after meetings with the CIA’s Cuba “experts”?)

carolcarol2
Fans of the old Carol Burnett shows--and especially of the Tim Conway/Harvey Korman skits--will probably mistake these pics as coming from that show--where Carol, Tim and Harvey were famous for cracking up during the course of their skits.

In fact, declassified CIA documents reveal that they show officials of Castro's Julio 26 Movement right after volunteering "valuable scoops!" to the CIA station chiefs in Cuba during the late 1950's.

“We’ve infiltrated Castro’s guerrilla group in the Sierra Mountains. The Castro brothers and Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara have no affiliations with any Communists whatsoever.” (Havana CIA station chief Jim Noel Nov. 1958.)

“Fidel Castro is not only not a communist –he’s a strong anti-Communist fighter. He’s ready to help us in the hemisphere’s anti-communist fight and we should share our intelligence with him.” (CIA Cuba “expert” Frank Bender, after conferring with Fidel Castro upon the latter’s visit to the U.S. in April, 1959.)

Our friends at Frontpage magazine help disseminate some items highly shocking outside the miniscule Cuban-American informational ghetto.

P.S. for some reason the CIA Cuba "experts" of that era do not like my books.
