In December 2014 I was visiting Cuba with my family and spotted a large, framed photograph still hanging on the wall of the Hotel Nacional in Havana (please see attached).  It was taken in the mid/late 1950’s (pre-Castro!) and appears to show none-other than James Angleton of the CIA, hanging out at the Wilbur Clark Casino in Havana (then based at the Nacional) with an assortment of villainous-looking types, many of whom can only be Mafia-men since the Mafia and controlled that operation as well as many others in Havana at that time.

 
If this is indeed Angleton in the picture, it is evidence of a close relationship between the CIA and the Mafia, held and maintained at the highest levels and already well established some years before the assassination of JFK.  Otherwise, what would Angleton of the CIA doing in a  Mafia-owned casino in Cuba, apparently the ‘guest of honour’?
 
However - am I right in thinking this is Angleton in the picture?

I corrected your username from JimKeen to Jim Keen. I also moved this topic to a more proper location on the forum.

 

Is your first name Jim or Jem? Your email says "Jim" but you signed your post "Jem."

 

As for the photograph, there appears to be a strong resemblance. Perhaps we can put up some comparison photographs.

 

However, whether or not it is him does not change the fact that we already know that the Agency was in bed with the Mafia. That the Agency was in bed with the Mafia does not, however, prove either that the CIA or the Mafia plotted to murder JFK together or apart.

I see Joe E.Ross, Emperor Hirohito, Rosie O'Donnell, and Ears the Clown.

 

No Angleton, though.
