Edgar Hoover, Director
Subject: ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
NOVEMBER 22, 1963
Our Miami, Florida, Office on November 23, 1963,
advised that the Office of Coordinator of Cuban Affairs in Miami advised that the Department of State feels some misguided
anti-Castro group might capitalize on the present situation and undertake an unauthorized raid against Cuba, believing that
the assassination of President John F. Kennedy might herald a change in U. S. policy, which is not true.
Our sources and informants familiar with Cuban matters in
the Miami area advise that the general feeling in the anti-Castro Cuban community is one of stunned disbelief and, even among
those who did not entirely agree with the President's policy concerning Cuba, the feeling is that the President's death represents
a great loss not only to the U. S. but to all of Latin America. These sources know of no plans for unauthorized action
An informant who has
furnished reliable information in the past and who is close to a small pro-Castro group in Miami has advised that these individuals
are afraid that the assassination of the President may result in strong repressive measures being taken against them and,
although pro-Castro in their feelings, regret the assassination.
The substance of the foregoing information was orally furnished to Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency and
Captain William Edwards of the Defense Intelligence Agency on November 23, 1963, by Mr. W. T. Forsyth of this Bureau.
