“OCT 14, 1960: The United States issues a false fact sheet at the United Nations in response to Castro’s accusations before the General Assembly. The paper addresses the issue of Radio Swan: ‘There is a private commercial broadcasting station on the [Swan] islands, operated by the Gibraltar Steamship Company. The United States Government understands that this station carries programs in Spanish that are heard in Cuba, and Cuban political refugees have purchased that some of its broadcast time.’”
