  • Description

    DR. JOSE MIRO CARDONA HAS RESIGNED AS CHIEF OF THE ANTI-CASTRO CUBAN REVOLUTIONARY COUNCIL, BIGGEST AND MOST ACTIVE OF THE REVOLUTIONARY GROUPS IN THE UNITED STATES AIMED AT OVERTHROWING CUBA'S PREMIER FIDEL CASTRO.

    DR. CARDONA RESIGNED IN MIAMI ON THURSDAY, CLAIMING THAT PRESIDENT KENNEDY HAD BROKEN PROMISES TO BACK A SECOND INVASION OF CUBA IN THE WAKE OF THE 1961 ABORTIVE INVASION.

    HE MADE THIS CHARGE IN A 10,000-WORD STATEMENT ACCOMPANYING HIS RESIGNATION, WHICH THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT REPORTEDLY URGED HIM NOT TO RELEASE TO THE PRESS. HE CLAIMED THAT IN MAY 1961, THE MONTH AFTER THE ABORTIVE INVASION, PRESIDENT KENNEDY HAD "PLANNED THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF CUBA WITH ME."
    (THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAID EARLIER THIS WEEK THAT DR. CARDONA'S STATEMENT CONTAINED INACCURACIES, AND THAT AMERICAN POLICY TOWARD CUBA WAS A MATTER FOR THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO DECIDE. THE LEADERS OF TWO OTHER ANTI-CASTRO GROUPS REPORTED RESIGNED WITH DR. CARDONA.)
