CIA cover up

At the begging of Kennedy's presidency, he was faced with many hard challenges that faced the whole nation. The Cold War raised tensions between superpower nations of the United States and the USSR. There was also Fidel Castro in Cuba, who posed a major security threat to the United States. In private Kennedy placed blame on the CIA, and their actions under he Eisenhower administration. Many anti-Castro advocates and CIA members viewed Kennedy as being too soft with the embargo on Cuba. This creates a theory that the CIA had a role in the assassination.
