289. 11/22/1963

“By the summer and fall of 1963, he [President John F. Kennedy] seems to have been convinced that something had to be done, some kind of détente reached with Cuba, some relaxation or improvement in relations. So he sent a friend of his, Jean Daniel, the editor of Nouvel Observateur, a news magazine like Newsweek, published in Paris, to Havana to discuss with Fidel [Castro], as his secret emissary, ways in which some kind of improvement in relations with Cuba could be achieved. Jean Daniel was sitting with Fidel in his office talking about this in Havana when the aide came in with the first word, for Fidel, that Kennedy had been assassinated.” [Editor’s Note: According to historical records, this date is November 22, 1963.] [Con Embargo]
