327. 6/15/1972

“… [Former President Richard] Nixon also is a very good example of the boomerang effect, or the adage that what goes around, comes around. They were Cuban exiles trained by the CIA and who had worked for the CIA who were arrested burgling the Democratic National Committee in the Watergate complex in Washington in June, 1972. So Nixon bit the dust, I guess you could say, on this Cuban thing. You remember that Nixon was so paranoid that be bugged himself. Those tapes were eventually pried loose by the court. There was the conversation, Nixon with his Chief of Staff [Harry R.] Haldeman, right after the Watergate break-in and arrests, telling Haldeman, We’ve got to cover this up because ‘it all tracks back to the Bay of Pigs.’ Meaning to his associations with the Mafia and his involvement in the assassination plots against Fidel [Castro], which until that time had not been revealed. It wasn’t until the mid-1970s, when the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives conducted their investigations, and then the Senate committee under Frank Church, Democrat of Idaho, came up with eight different CIA assassination plots against Fidel. The Cuban government has provided the evidence to the U.S. government of more than thirty different CIA assassination plots against Fidel.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
