Terrorism fears in New York are nothing news. Back in 1962, the Castro Brothers, a couple of Obama’s new BFF’s, along with Iran’s Supreme Leader, had BIG plans for New York on the day after Thanksgiving.

In the wake of the November 13 terrorist attacks on Paris, which, in an epic example of karmic timing, happened just one day after our delusional occupant of the Oval Office, B.Hussein Obama (or do you prefer Barry Soetoro?) pronounced the perpetrators, ISIS, “contained.” Now, he tells us there are “no credible threats” against our homeland, yet inexplicably many Americans are still on edge. C’mon, Bitter Clingers, would your Dear Reader lie to you?
Interestingly, this is not the first Thanksgiving holiday when New York was in the sites of murderous terrorists. Back in 2005, my friend, and frequent Teri O’Brien Show guest, Humberto Fontova reminded us of when Fidel Castro wanted to murder thousands of Americans in New York City.
On Nov. 17, 1962, J. Edgar Hoovers’ FBI cracked a terrorist plot (though the term “terrorist” was not used at the time) by Castro-Cuban agents that targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomindales and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set to go off the following week, the day after Thanksgiving.
A little perspective: for their March 2004 Madrid subway blasts — all 10 of them — that killed and maimed almost 2,000 people, al Qaeda used a grand total of 100 kilos of TNT. Fidel Castro’s agents planned to set off five times that explosive power in the three biggest department stores on earth, all packed to suffocation and pulsing with holiday cheer on the year’s biggest shopping day. Thousands of New Yorkers, including women and children — actually, given the date and targets, probably mostly women and children — were to be incinerated and entombed. (I document this episode in my book, Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.)…
Castro’s agents for his Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later when member Lee Harvey Oswald really racked up some headlines….
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are reminded again that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
