The CIA hit in 1950s mirrors the JFK assassination. Neither accused killer lived to tell his story.
There is something extremely important that has been overlooked by many investigators. The supposed killer of Castillo Armas in Guatemala had a note in his possession indicating that he had contact with communists in Russia (just like the killer of Robert Kennedy and JFK).

Nothing could be further from truth. An Indian soldier in Guatemala who could barely read or write back in those days writing to Russia? I just laugh at the CIA using that assessment in the their killings. Again, it just makes me laugh and angry at the same time just to see how the CIA tried this trick and got away with it.
I was raised in Guatemala and very well remember those days. I lived very close to where Castillo Armas was killed.
