State Dept. tried covering-up sonic attacks on U.S. diplomats in Cuba ( “SAME AS IT EVER WAS!” for State Dept. services to Castro!)


“The State Department is coming under fire after an internal document revealed officials knew about the extent of the injuries to its diplomats in Cuba long before it acknowledged them.  The document was from the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs and it was obtained by CBS News. ”

“Same as it ever was!”

Gosh! So the U.S. State Dept. has Castro’s back?!..Gee! So what else is new?!…Regarding State Dept. services for Castro here’s a (fully-documented) stroll down memory lane:

“The U.S. State Dept. is in our pocket,” (The Castro movement’s–“July 26th”–New York operative Mario Llerena, 1958.)

“Everyone in the CIA and everyone at State were pro-Castro, except ambassador Earl Smith.”  (CIA operative in Santiago Cuba, Robert Weicha.)

“Same as it ever was!”

“You have been quoted, Amb.  Gardner, as referring to, ‘Castro worship’ in the State Department in 1957. Mr. Gardner, do you have any idea why the United States allowed Castro to get arms from the United States, and would not allow Batista to have arms to preserve his government…. You have been quoted as saying that Washington, ‘pulled the rug out” from under Batista?’ ” (Sen. Thomas Dodd,  Congressional hearings Aug. 27, 1960.)



“Yes support for Castro became a sort of fetish for them (the U.S. State Dept.) (Amb. Arthur Gardner, Congressional hearings, Aug. 27, 1960.)

“Would you say that the American Government then, including all of its agencies, was largely responsible for bringing Castro to power?” (Senator James Eastland, Congressional hearings Aug. 27, 1960.)

“I would say that representatives of the majority of the U.S. Government agencies which have anything to do with the U.S. Embassy had a hand in bringing pressure to overthrow the Batista government..Senator, we [the U.S.] are responsible for bringing Castro in power. I do not care how you want to word it.” ( Amb. Earl T. Smith, Congressional hearings Aug. 27, 1960.)

“Humberto Fontova’s book teaches us truths about Castro’s island that are very discomfiting for many intellectuals.” (Ana Botella, Spain’s former First Lady while giving a book reading in Madrid, upon “Fidel; HFT” release in Spain)

“Humberto Fontova is a gifted polemicist who pulls no punches. A great service for liberty, justice and truth.” (The Weekly Standard  on Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.)
