“OCT 17-18, 1960: Cuban-based members of the FRD [Frente Revolutionario Democratico– Cuban Revolutionary Democratic Front] meet with Manuel de Verona to complain about the lack of support from the United States. Verona offers $200,000 to support the political and other resistance operations on the island. He also tells them that two shipments of arms, presumably from the CIA, have entered CUBA.”
