Peter Kornbluh discusses Kennedy assassination

Peter Kornbluh
Fidel Castro was having lunch with a French journalist in Varadero when the phone rang. The message: John F. Kennedy had been shot and was dead.
"They're going to say we did it," Castro reportedly said.
And that is what happened, according to Peter Kornbluh, director of the Cuba Documentation Project at the National Security Archive in Washington, D.C.
Kornbluh has dedicated much of his career to digging up once-classified documents and other information to try to get to the bottom of historic events involved the United States and Cuba. He and William LeoGrande are authors of a forthcoming book called, "Talking With Cuba: The Hidden History of Diplomacy between the United States and Cuba."
I interviewed Kornbluh in Washington about a range of issues related to Cuba. See a 4-minute excerpt of the interview in which he discusses Cuba and the Kennedy assassination 50 years after it occurred.
