18. Murder Inc.

Eisenhower was President and Nixon VP when CIA contracted with the Mafia to assassinate Castro in 1960. When JFK discovered the program after becoming President in 1961, he ordered it shut down. After the JFK assassination, the CIA never mentioned the program to the Warren Commission.

AUG 1960: Richard Bissell meets with Colonel Sheffield Edwards, director of the CIA's Office of Security, and discusses with him ways to eliminate or assassinate Fidel Castro. Edwards proposes that the job be done by assassins hand-picked by the American underworld, specifically syndicate interests who have been driven out of their Havana gambling casinos by the Castro regime. Bissell gives Edwards the go-ahead to proceed. Between August 1960, and April 1961, the CIA with the help of the Mafia pursues a series of plots to poison or shot Castro. The CIAs own internal report on these efforts states that these plots "were viewed by at least some of the participants as being merely one aspect of the over-all active effort to overthrow the regime that culminated in the Bay of Pigs." (CIA, Inspector General's Report on Efforts to Assassinate Fidel Castro, p. 3, 14)


If Epstein was going to kill himself, itd be more likely after conviction. The guy could afford all the lawyers he needed. Ask Alex Acosta.
