I see this is an old thread, but since there are some recent posts here, I definitely have a story to tell regarding this topic.
In the late 90s and early 2000s I was known in a local religious group as someone with a talent for rooting out people's personalities and probable
outcome of their choices. Well, it came to be a sort of mythologized legend within this group that i could predict the future of individuals by
meeting and talking with them. Authorities would come to me and ask me to offer my "impressions" of this or that person. Eventually, anyone who felt
uncomfortable with themselves (for whatever reason) would make snide remarks or simply avoid making eye contact with me at religious meetings.
One day after such a meeting an authority figure (refer to him as Alejandro) came to within breathing distance of me and without hesitation, softly
asked if the CIA would kill him if he published a book about the Kennedy assassination. I was caught of guard and asked him to repeat the question. He
did, and then just stared at me waiting for an instant response.
I knew this man for years. He had an impeccable reputation as a very honest, humble and generous individual, who had made personal sacrifices to help
others. Alejandro was an aging, white haired man of Cuban origin, whose history I knew nothing of. I started the conversation by asking him to
elaborate a bit.
He stated that his father was a Lt Colonel in the national Army of the Fulgencio Batista government (the right wing government overthrown by Fidel
Castro, January 1959) and that Alejandro and his brother were flown to an uncle in Miami several weeks before Castro entered the capitol. Alejandro's
father was arrested and killed after the takeover.
Two years later, the Bay of Pigs operation was launched and had failed. His brother was one of the fortunate ones to return quickly after the
invasion. Skipping ahead, November 22, 1963, Dallas, Texas. Kennedy is shot multiple times while riding in an open vehicle with his wife.
Alejandro and his brother were watching the news in the hours following the assassination. At one point, a camera is pointed into Oswald's cell.
Alejandro told me that his brother recognized Oswald from the CIA training camp, where he was being prepared for the Cuban operation. Apparently,
Oswald sat in the same mess hall with Alejandro's brother on several occasions, and there was no doubt about who he was.
Being the case, there must be dozens of witnesses out there, still alive to day who could definitely identify Oswald as being a CIA asset in the JFK
