Jay Sourwine, Chief Counsel, Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, called and said a Senator had inquired as to the accuracy of certain radio reports that there had been an attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro. After checking with DDI, I passed word to Sourwine that the reports were inaccurate. Sourwine called and asked if there was anything to a 6 October item in the Chicago Tribune reporting that CIA had determined that some 43 camps with some ten thousand occupants had been set up in Cuba for terrorist training of nationals from all continents. Sourwine said that it would be hard to believe the figures involved, but that he would be interested in anything we might have along this line which can be shared with the Subcommittee. I told Sourwine I would check and be back in touch.
