In
.
early
February of
this
year,
Fidel
Castro
told
newsmen
in
Havana that
CIA
agents had
been
sent
t
kill
him
and
his
brother,
Raul, He

ealize that
he
was
not
the
only
politician
able
to
engineer
the

The
plan
provided that
.
Castro
an
d
hi
s fellow
experts
in
murder
and
gen
ocide
were
to
be
given
safe
conduct
out
of
Cuba.
From
the Soviet s
tand
point,
all
that
w
as
involved was
a
slight
tactical
retr
ea
t
in
Cu

to
be
offset
by ad
van
ces on
other
Latin
Am
erican fronts,
such as Braz
il
and
Chile.
From
Castro's
s
tandp
oint, however,
it
meant
the
end
of
his
career as
·a
world
figure
and he
refused to
go

along
with
it...
·
Assass
in
atio
n
of Pr

ident Kennedy was
a
bold way
of
checkmating
this
plan.
At a recep

in

This is typical
of

s,
whose
pro-Com

and

are
,myriad.
For
example,
when Tito
-visited
Mexico
a few
months ago,
news-··
pap
er
publishers
were
ordered
to
print
only
laudatory
articles
on
the
Yu

To
prove
to
the
world that
Mexioo
has
a free
press, howev
er, two
or
three
cr

articles were
approved
and

Immediately before
t
he
Tito visit, a few
anti-Communist
students
attempted
to
destroy posters
praising
the
Balkan
butcher.
They
were
caught
by
the
poli
ce,
held
incomm
uni
cado
for
a few
da
ys
and
subjected
to
 ·
tortures which
l

no

For
example,

by

and
repeatedly dropped
