POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN THE TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL
There will be nothing except for trivia of this nature in these files.
Their release is a public relations effort.
We knew everything, except the trivia, around efforts to kill Castro.
The release of this fluff at this time gives us the image of boy scouts rather than the torturers and murderers they very much are today.
And were then too, but the really key revelations won't be here.
The CIA's involvement in many coups and successful assassinations
of the time just won't be here.
Just one important example: the CIA's role in covering up details of the Kennedy assassination. This remains a mystery.
As Bertrand Russell asked at the time, if the assassination reduced to nothing but a murder by one man, where was the issue of national security?
