Agreed. Makes you wonder what other types of non-public historic covert actions exist out there.

The attribution in this article is pretty shaky, basically saying that this guy wrote a book about it and using that as sufficient evidence. The author of the book makes passing reference to "documents" but is not very specific. I'm supposed to believe that these documents have been publicly available long enough for him to write a book, but that the initial release of the documents didn't cause an uproar? Sounds fishy.
This is the same media that uncritically passes on "scientific studies" from advocacy groups that always seem to support the groups' causes.

1. It didn't happen.
2. Given the presumption of self-serving illicit intent, the fact that those same people couldn't cook up a plan to show that Castro and the Cubans were responsible for the JFK assassination is remarkable. If they were responsible for the JFK assassination, blaming Cuba would have been the central part of their plan. If they were not responsible, but were looking for ways to blame Cuba for something, why didn't they make something up?
In short, if you believe this article, then this provides the most conclusive evidence that the JFK assassination was not part of a conspiracy.
Oh yeah, and:
3. It didn't happen.

It did happen (that is the memo existed). Check out Harpers Magazine (September or August I think). It was recently de-classified.

Assuming it's true, so what? Leaders make plans for all sorts of scenarios that they never intend to initiate. It's called being thorough.

I hate to say it, but a similar thought had crossed my mind so here it goes. For a breif moment, I had wondered if the intelligence community actually had some information on the WTC and had let it happen in order to gain an excuse to go out and battle terrorism. It was a brief and fleeting thought of a mind that was racing after the attcks, but the thought did come up for me.
