3 Things I Learned about Fidel Castro

  1. His parents were uneducated, but became wealthy.  They were immigrant farmers from Spain.
  2. After the revolution in Cuba, Fidel came to the USA for a tour, and was widely welcomed, although Eisenhower sent VP Nixon to meet with him at the White House.
  3. The US organized terrorist attacks in Cuba before the Bay of Pigs in 1961, including one of the first known use of secondary bombings.  They blew up a supply ship in the harbor, and then rigged additional bombs to go off when First Responders, Medical and Fire were responding, killing dozens of other persons.
