The Cubans, like so many other people, were thrown into the mix by the Director as red herrings, people to be used to achieve an end. Cubans were used in New Orleans to pick a fight with Oswald as he handed out leaflets for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. Cubans were used in Dallas by letting it be known that they had been stashed in CIA safe houses. Cubans were used in the Odio affair. The Director knew well that very few Americans would care to discern the difference between pro-Castro Cubans and anti-Castro Cubans. All one would need to say is that Cubans were in Dallas; the public's imagination would take it the rest of the way. And if someone should ask too many questions, well, it wouldn't matter because it was a win either way. If the pro-Castro Cubans did it, it was payback against Kennedy for the Bay of Pigs invasion. If the anti-Castro Cubans did it, it was payback against Kennedy for failure to support the Bay of Pigs invasion.
