Introduction by Marie Fonzi.
“Like many of my exile contemporaries, at the time, in the early 1960’s, I believed John F. Kennedy was a traitor to the Cuban exiles and to this country. Yet, over time, I came to recognize that President Kennedy was not a traitor, but someone who acted in the interests always of the United States of America. In my research of President Kennedy’s life, I came upon the American University speech, which, to me, was one of the greatest speeches ever given by an American president. After studying that speech, I decided I couldn’t go from this world without saying that John F. Kennedy was a great man and a great president who had great vision for this country and the world.” Antonio Veciana
We owe a major debt to the late Senate and House investigator Gaeton Fonzi for what we now know about Antonio Veciana and his CIA contact Maurice Bishop, and the meeting he attended when Bishop appeared in the company of Lee Harvey Oswald. Veciana was the founder of the anti-Castro organization known as Alpha 66, and was himself involved in two CIA assassination attempts on Cuban President Fidel Castro. He calls Fonzi’s book, “The Last Investigation” the “best book that has been written” about the Kennedy Assassination, and on the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination on November 22nd, 1963 he confirmed to Gaeton’s widow, Marie, the major premise of Gaeton’s book: That Maurice Bishop was in fact the person he also knew as David Atlee Phillips, the high-ranking CIA official in charge of all CIA operations in the Western hemisphere.
