CIA, Cuban Highlights – 09/19/1962

In this brief report on Cuba for the Special Group, the CIA reported that Germany was about to bar the three West German ships under charter to the Soviet bloc from being used for trade with Cuba. It also noted Richard Nixon’s calls for stronger action (ie. a naval blockade) on Cuba and George Smathers’ proposal for a NATO-like military alliance aimed at Cuba.

This was the last of the special reports on Cuba in this particular series. “Significant Cuban developments will continue to be treated fully in regular Agency publications,” it said.
