Did Castro have JFK assassinated?

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media has an interesting review of Brian Latell’s new book Castro’s Secrets.

Castro’s role in the JFK murder has been the subject of controversy for decades. In 2009, on one of the Sunday interview programs, ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson said that he wanted to ask Fidel Castro before he died, “Did you do it? Meaning November 22, 1963.” This was the date of Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination of JFK.

The answer, as Latell’s book makes clear, is that Kennedy was considered early on to be an enemy of the Cuban communist revolution, and that the Kennedy brothers had tried to kill Castro. For his part, Oswald was a pro-Castro Marxist activist who had traveled to the Soviet Union and had gone to the Cuban consulate in Mexico City on three occasions between September 27 and October 2, 1963, seeking a visa to travel to Cuba. During one of these visits, he proclaimed, “I’m going to kill Kennedy.”

Of course this is not new news and no doubt the skeptics will cry conspiracy but, nonetheless, it makes for interesting reading. Whatever the result, JFK’s murder violates God’s will and the perpetrators and accomplices will stand accountable before God (Romans 2:6; Hebrews 9:27). Further, He will carry through with His vengeance, for “vengeance is mine, I will repay” (Romans 12:19).
