C.I.A. Washington, D. C. My dear Allen:- HAYDEN, STONE & CO. ESTABLISHED 1E192 400 PARK AVENUE NEW YORK 22, N.Y. May 2, 1961 "A thistle, touched gently, is pricky Grasped firmly, is harmless." - from an old English classic. It is easy to say to an old friend "Well done thou good and faithful servant P when the public is heaping encomiums upon him for an outstanding achievement. But perhaps a friend appreciates more hearing a word of encouragement when his stock with the public is at nadir. Maybe this isn't your case but the press has not been good to you lately. I need not tell you that I am one of your warmest admirers and envy your long and brilliant record of unselfish public service. It is not surprising to me that there have been failures as well as successes in the record. The gist of this letter concerns Cuba. You may or may not know that I have spent half my adult life in Latin America and speak Spanish fluently. So perhaps I have a background that warrants my expressing myself on Cuba. Encouraged by hearing Matthews of the New York Times tell a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations in the spring of 1959 that Fidel Castro was an idealist and his over-throw of Batista was most constructive and should have the full backing of all Americans, I went to Cuba in March 1959 and spent a month there. Among others, I had a letter of introduction to the Garcia family. They are the decendents of General Garcia made famous by the story: Message to Garcia. I spent many hours in Havana with various members of this family and learned what was happening to the upper and middle classes in Cuba. I also tiked freely with the "man in the Street" and learned that Castro had about 99% popular support. I had some lengthy talks with Phil Bonsal and other members of his staff at the Embassy. I of course listened to several of Castro's long-winded television broad- casts. The net result was that I came away disillusioned, but not con- vinced at that time that Castro was in the communist camp. Later whenGuevara was steadil,y moved up to No. 2 man in the Government, I no longer had any doubts of the trend of things. A year later Mulholland of the State Department talked about Cuba ,before the Council. In the question and answer period, I had a bit of a debate with him. Mulhollandls talk was soporific: "We have our plans. We will take care of Castro in due time." Afterward I had a private talk with Mulholland. He asked: "What would you do, Luitweiler?" I Approved For Release 2002/08/23 : CIA-RDP80601676R003500150044-2 Approved For Release 2002/08/23 : CIA-RDP80601676R003500150044-2 -2- said: "I would stop completely America's buying of Cuban sugar". "But" said Mulholland, "the American people would not stand for having their supply of sugar cut off entirely." I answered rather facetiously: "Let Americans use sucyr01 for a while. It might be cheaper in the end than allowing Castro to continue along his present line." I think in fact that at that time it would have been very effective and might have stopped his build-up. Things kept getting worse in Cuba. At a meeting of the Council on the Congo, I had a little side talk with our mutual friend, Arthur Dean. "Why all this concern over the Congo and complete inaction on Cuba?" I asked him. "Luitweiler? whoever controls Africa will control the future of the world. The Cubans themselves will take care of Castro; was the substance of Dean's answer. Recently I listened to Beltran, of Peru, before the Council. He was eloquent and emphatic as to the Cubans taking care of Castro on their own: "There are huge stores now of all sorts of modern Russian weapons in Cuba' Beltran said, "and 10,000 trained Russians and other satellite technicians in civilian clothes but ready at a moment's notice to take charge. The Russians do not trust Castro enough to let him have complete control of the armaments they have sent him. If there is a Cuban uprising it will be another Hungary unless the United States gives 11 support." It was only a month ago he made this prophecy. Last night I listened to the news commentator, Howard K. Smith, who also brushed aside the seriousness of the Cuban situation, saying in effect: "Cuba, 90 miles off our shore, is in. Uncle Sam's maw. Any time we choose, we can simply bite him off." That is what the American people are being daily fed while the carbuncle of Castroism grows and the virus spreads throughout Latin America, just as the Hitler virusdidtuatil it required a major operation to get rid of them and the world was laid waste in the process. Now I imagine you have glanced through this much of my letter rather hurriedly and no dou t it is not news to you. If so it is indeed difficult for a layman to understand just what has happened in Cuba. I mention all these things, however, as background for what I have to sug- gest at this juncture. Something should be done and quickly: Not after six months when enough time has elapsed to mount another try at invasion by a fresh flame of Cubans. "Losing face" in Latin America is as serious as it is in the Far East. I am not advocating ignoring all our obligations to the United Nations and the Organization of American States. But the United States has certain obligations to its own citizens which I think are paramount:, It has been rather well established that Americans have been arrested, jailed and shot by Castro without a trial - in a spirit of sheer bravado. Nothing makes us .lose: Pace in Latin America more than such incidents. Castro has proven he can pull feathers out of the eagle's tail and get a squawk, and nothing more. That should stop. The suggestion: The very next incident that occurs - and it wont be long before it does - that an American is arrested in Cuba and held in- comunicado without a hearing and benefit of consultation with diplomatic reiliNIEW0AffeigtastAfea002108/21e?GIAARD182013011111SR001350013T*64422 while Approved For Release 2002/08/23 : CIA-RDP80601676R003500150044-2 -2- standing off Havana serve notice on Castro that we will blow him and his National Palace to bits miless the American is released and delivered over to us within the hour. If it does not happen, then carry out the threat and withdraw. That isn'tvLs-t-_,bion?inter that is just plain protection of American citizens abroad and it is high time such protection is given them. You have no idea of the salutory effect this would have not only upon the Cuban people themselves, but upon Latin Americans as a whole where similar incidents are likely to happen with increasing frequency. JCL/2113 Very cordially yours, J Ct Luitweiler P.S. While I was writing this I heard a radio report that the Swiss Embassy in Havana, on our behalf, has invited all the 1200 American citizens in Cuba to leave, stating that Castro will allow it! Just another bit of weakness on our part and not calculated to help our prestige throughout Latin America. Americans in Cuba should be allowed to remain in Cuba if they wish and thty should be assured of oll.r_protection!

Senator Morse declared after the meeting that he was satis- fied that the project had been a "joint participation" by the White House, the State Depart- ment, the Defense Department and the Central Intelligence Agency. Tomorrow afternoon the full Senate Committee On Foreign Relations will question Allen W. Dulles, director of the C. I. A., on his agency's participation in the Cuban attack and on other aspects of his agency's world- wide activities. Senate sources indicated tonight that there were no plans for a full-fledged in.vestigation of the attack on Cuba. . Watchdog Unit Sought The questioning of Mr. Dulles on the C. I.

A ,resolution that would ,set up such a committee was in- trodOced recently by Senator Eugene J. McCarthy, Democrat of Minnesota, and hearings on It are expected to begin soon. In testifying today, Secretary Rusk was reported to have told the Senator's there was need to reaSSess the mechanism ot rela- tions between the State Depart- ment and the C. I. A: There have been private com- Eints in the past by State De- rtrnent officials that intel- ence agents working through united States Embassies abroad Maintained little or no liaison With the Ambassadors. In the case of the attack on Cuba, charges were made -that C. I. A. agents in charge of the rebel force ignored ' State De- partment urgings for a purge of elements associated with Fulgencio Batista, the ousted Cuban dictator, and that ,they ;lad played politics by favoring dne exile group to the detri- ment of others. Senator Morse said after the meeting that, according to Mr. Rusk, the Administration had tro plans to assist further rebel attacks. "That," the Senator remarked, "was quite a relief." Senator Morse declared that "Mr. Rusk made it clear that rumors and statements that the Cnited States , is planning, be- rause df the bloody nose we "offered, further military inter- rention in Cuba has no basis in act whatsoever."

Francisco Molina, a supporter of Premier Fidel Castro of Cuba, was found guilty of sec- ond-degree murder April 7 in the slaying of a 9-year-old girl. He is to be sentenced May 26. A group calling itself. the Committee to Defend Francisco Molina, said Senor Triana "has disclosed to Cuban authorities" that he and four other anti- Castro men went to El Prado Restaurant here last September with chains, knives and pistols, intending to provoke a fight. The committee also said he had told Cuban authorities that accusation yesterday, saying Senor Triana had told his story to investigators before his entry into the case. Mr. Herman said he did not know where Senor Triana was now. Two other witnesses, as well as four anti-Castro men, testified to having seen Molina with a pistol, he said. Anti-Castro quarters here said Senor Triana was believed to have been in an April 17 land- ing force in Cuba and to be missing. The Molina defense group, through its secretary, Mrs. Deirdre Griswold said it had his testimony that he saw Mo- got its information from a lina with a pistol "was a lieCuban reporter.
