About this Item

x, 261, [1] pages. Glossary. Occasional footnotes. Chronology. Bibliography. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Fabian Escalante is the author of several books, including The Secret War: CIA Covert Operations Against Cuba, 1959-62 (1995) and CIA Targets Fidel: The Secret Assassination Report (1996). In 2006 Escalante published JFK: The Cuba Files. In the book Escalante describes the conspiracy uncovered by Cuba's investigation, which reviewed declassified US files and reports from Cuban intelligence units that had infiltrated anti-Castro groups in Miami. At the time of assassination of John F. Kennedy, Escalante was head of a counter-intelligence unit and was part of a team investigating a CIA operation called Sentinels of Liberty. In 1982 Escalante became a senior official in the Interior Ministry. Escalante was considered to be Cuba's leading authority on the history of CIA activities against his country. Escalante became head of the Cuban Security Studies Center in 1993. This allowed him to re-examine the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He studied all the available material and publications, consulted with former agents and operatives, and investigated all the accessible documentation." In a Cuban television documentary broadcast on November 26, 1993, Escalante named the gunmen who killed John F. Kennedy as three Chicago mobsters (Lenny Patrick, David Yaras, and Richard Cain), and two Cuban exiles (Herminio Diaz Garcia and Eladio del Valle), but said that many in the CIA and elsewhere knew what was going to happen. "The Cuban files add new pieces to the puzzle and give us a clearer picture of what really happened."--Oliver Stone, director of "JFK." This is the first publication of the declassified Cuban report into the Kennedy assassination, instigated at the request of the US government. Amid continuing speculation over Cuban involvement in the most famous political crime of the 20th century, this book reveals for the first time Cuba's own report into the Kennedy assassination. With compelling logic, Fabián Escalante, who directed Cuba's investigation, describes how Cuban intelligence uncovered a conspiracy against President Kennedy among those who felt betrayed by the Bay of Pigs debacle: the Cuban exiles, the Mafia, and the CIA.
