Description

Newly released documents show that in the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs invasion 35 years ago President Kennedy brushed off an invitation from the revolutionary leader Che Guevara to reach terms for peaceful coexistence between the United States and Cuba. The Miami Herald reports how Kennedy halted talks with Cuban President Fidel Castro to pay ransom to free nearly 1,200 exile-invaders in Cuban Jails and cleared the CIA for a new program of subversion dubbed Operation Mongoose. A recently released CIA memo insists discussion of the assassination of Cuban leaders should not by released in writing. (April 29,1996)
