“Later in the day, [Jan 3, 1961] Fidel Castro announces that Cuba will go to the U.N. [United Nations] and ‘declare that if the United States believes it has the right to promote counterrevolution in Cuba, and believes it has the right to promote counterrevolution and reaction in Latin America, then Cuba has the right to encourage revolution in Latin America.’”
