Fidel Castro — 13 August 1926 – 25 November 2016

 

The man in charge of protecting Castro claims that he dodged 638 CIA plots to assassinate him.

One of the more devious plots was when they hired his ex-mistress Marita Lorenz to feed him capsules of poison.

Castro found out that she was there to assassinate him, and responded by putting a gun in Lorenz’s hand, telling her to shoot him, but she could not bring herself to carry it out.

Then he took a puff on his cigar and closed his eyes. He made himself vulnerable because he knew I couldn’t do it. He still loved me and I still loved him.

A “Moral Jacket”

On a trip to New York (1979 UN), Castro was asked if he was wearing a bulletproof vest? He opened his shirt, showed his bare chest, and replied:

“No, I have a moral one.”
