“On approving a document titled ‘A Program of Covert Action Against the Castro Regime’, March 17, 1960, US President Dwight David Eisenhower established a strategy aimed at overthrowing the young Cuban Revolution as his administration’s official policy. The anti-Cuba program included actions such as the setting up of an exiled Cuban organization to provide a cover for CIA operations; the deployment of international propaganda on behalf of the opposition and the creation inside Cuba of an underground intelligence and action group under the direction of the exiled organization; to set up a small paramilitary force out of Cuba in order to take it into the island to organize, train and lead resistance groups.”
