78. The powers-that-be used Dallas to build support for Cuba invasion...
During the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, almost the entire cabinet, and most of Congress that had been briefed wanted JFK to launch a nuclear strike against the Soviet Union, even if it meant global nuclear war.

Thanks to Adlai Stevenson and Bobby Kennedy, the President ordered the government agencies to work out an alternative. That was the embargo. For his trouble keeping the world from ending, JFK was branded "soft" on communism and worse.

One of the things that has most troubled me about the JFK assassination is that there is so much evidence indicating government duplicity in the killing. Chief among these is the concerted efforts to paint Oswald as being a communist sympathizer who wanted to shoot the President and then flee to Cuba.

(This is in addition to the trail created before the assassination: One man purchased trucks in Oswald's name. Another man claimed to be Oswald took a car salesman on a harrowing "test drive" and said he'd be "coming into money" soon.)

A man impersonating Oswald appeared at the Cuban embassy in Mexico City. There were even records of CIA-wiretapped phone calls of a man claiming to be Oswald to the Cuban embassy. To me, that demostrates SOMEONE went to a lot of trouble to point the finger at Castro -- and by extension his backers in Moscow.

To the Warren Commission and the public, the CIA stated the man was Oswald. Only decades later did the Agency recant and state they don't know who the man was. But at the time, someone in the Agency wanted Oswald to be a Cuban sympathizer so the American people would be UNITED in a war on Cuba and the Soviets.

This is the man the CIA top brass claimed was Lee Harvey Oswald. Notice the forearms, those of a very strong man. Here's another pic.

Striking there's no similarity to Lee Harvey Oswald. Yet, more and more it looks like Oswald was a loyal American used by his government to be the "Patsy."
