The National Archives and Records Administration and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston have made public documents which reveal a sinister plan of the US in 1964 to eliminate Fidel Castro by hiring the Mafia for $150,000.

This has been reported in dailymail.co.uk of dated 13th of October 2012.

It seems the mob and 'patriotic Cuban exiles' had actually settled on a payment of $100,000 for assassinating Castro, $20,000 for his brother Raul and $20,000 for revolutionary Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, plus $2,500 for expenses.

These plans are outlined in 2700 pages of documents which had been compiled by Robert F Kennedy when he was the Attorney General from 1961 to 1964 and these offer an insight into the background activities of decision making in the Cold War.

The documents had been preserved in seven boxes and included telegrams, reports, meeting transcripts and handwritten notes by Kennedy.

It is strongly believed that the thinking of President John F Kennedy was very similar to that of his brother Robert and his advices to the then President during the Bay of Pigs invasion and the missile crisis were key moments during John’s presidency.
