“Over the course of time we were able to get a Kennedy administration file declassified. It was called, ‘Special Contacts with Cuban Leaders,’ and it revealed a whole set of efforts to reach out and communicate with Castro about changing the contours of US/Cuban relations in the wake of the very dangerous Cuban Missile Crisis.” Dr. Peter Kornbluh
Senior analyst at the National Security Archive in Washington in its Chile Documentation Project, Dr. Peter Kornbluh is co-author (with William M. LeoGrande) of “Back Channel To Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations between Washington and Havana,” which challenges the conventional wisdom of perpetual hostility between the United States and Cuba and chronicles the largely untold history of bilateral efforts toward rapprochement and reconciliation between JFK and Fidel Castro.
