La Paz, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) President Evo Morales has denounced old U.S. plans against Cuba, such as Operation Mongoose, a pretext for a U.S. military intervention in the the Caribbean island.
‘The CIA’s Operation Mongoose included so-called pretexts for U.S. military intervention in Cuba. The empire is now doing the same,’ the president posted on his Twitter account @evoespueblo.
This U.S. subversive program against Cuba was approved by then President John F. Kennedy on November 30, 1962, on behalf of his country’s National Security, after his military defeat in Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs), in central Cuba.
The action plan included 32 tasks with options such as an economic and biological warfare, and ideological and political subversion, among others, in order to destroy the Cuban Revolution.
Morales posted on another tweet: ‘The United States is a champion in dirty wars and interventionism. It used to encourage dictatorships; it uses today its puppies as dictators for coup attempts’.
The denunciations made by the Bolivian head of State came after the declassification on Thursday, October 26, of files related to the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, in which several attempts to assassinate the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, were mentioned.
According to the documents, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in plans to assassinate Fidel Castro since 1959.
Cuban official information revealed that the State security services prevented a total of 638 assassination attempts against Fidel Castro.
