9781616147570: The Cuban Connection: Nixon, Castro, and the Mob

In April 1959, Fidel Castro toured the United States at the invitation of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Though he was wary, Castro entertained some hope of establishing a rapprochement with Washington. But after being snubbed by President Eisenhower and receiving a less-than-cordial reception from Vice President Richard Nixon, Castro got the strong impression that US intentions toward his new Cuban government were hostile.

In The Cuban Connection, former FBI agent and investigative journalist William Turner examines the fateful meeting between Castro and Nixon and the murky connections that existed between official Washington, the CIA, and organized crime in Cuba. Based on firsthand interviews with many of the key players involved in Cuban-American relations of that era, plus thorough background research, Turner raises a host of disturbing questions:

Before the ouster of the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista by Castro, why did Vice President Nixon often socialize at Havana casinos with his Cuban friend Bebe Rebozo? How was the rabid anticommunism of the Eisenhower administration, especially its instant dislike of Castro, connected to its cozy relationship with the former mob-controlled dictatorship? How did all of this set the stage for the Bay of Pigs fiasco and ultimately the Cuban Missile Crisis and the JFK assassination?

In a vivid narrative The Cuban Connection provides insider information that rarely reaches the public and that many in power never wanted the public to know.

About the Author:

William Weyand Turner (San Rafael, CA) is the author of many books, including Deadly Secrets: The CIA-Mafia War against Castro and the Assassination of JFK (with Warren Hinckle). Turner served for more than ten years as an FBI agent. He was also a senior editor of Ramparts magazine and assisted the district attorney in Orleans Parish, Louisiana, with the investigation of the JFK assassination.

From Booklist:

Turner, a former FBI agent, assisted Jim Garrison in his dramatic prosecution of Clay Shaw for the murder of JFK and claimed RFK was murdered as part of a conspiracy. So his credibility as an objective journalist is questionable. Here Turner examines the meeting of Fidel Castro with Vice President Nixon in April 1959. According to Turner, Castro came to the meeting wary but hoping to establish good relations with the U.S. But Castro felt snubbed by President Eisenhower and found Nixon hostile. Of course, that directly contradicts other accounts of the meeting, and it also suggests Castro developed his anti-American crusade because his feelings were hurt. Turner also takes some Olympian leaps in connecting Nixon directly with Mob figures. This book will be red meat for conspiracy-mongers and blame-America enthusiasts, but it isn’t serious history. --Jay Freeman
