CIA, Cuban Highlights – 09/18/1962

This one-page report on Cuba prepared for the Special Group contained only three brief items. Significantly, American signals intelligence had picked up the first radar signals believed to come from the SAM site at Mariel. “We take this to mean that if the site is not already operational, it soon will be,” the report said. The other items notes were related to Japanese assessment and Walter Lippmann’s article in that morning’s Washington Post calling for a policy of patient and diligent watchfulness until such a time that Cuba oversteps.
