Foreign Relations of the United States, 1964-1968, Volume XXXII: Dominican Republic; Cuba; Haiti; Guyana Current Section: 249. 3/6/64 - Letter From the Chief of the Western Hemisphere Division of the CIA (FitzGerald) to the President's Special Assistant for National Secur

3/6/64: Desmond FitzGerald told McGeorge Bundy: "In my estimation, a covert program at this time designed to overthrow Castro is not realistic...The sabotage raids are conducted by Cuban exile groups trained in Florida and entirely subject to our planning and control." (A reference to Comandos Mambises)

Don Bohning, The Castro Obsession (Potomoc Books, 2005), pp. 248-252

Bohning writes: "FitzGerald's (3/6/64 letter, above) summed up the disappointing status of covert activities in the context of the program approved the preceding June..." In the wake of meetings on and around 4/7/64, there was "(no) evidence of any further CIA-controlled sabotage raids. Such raids were 'stood down' the previous January and apparently never resumed...Desmond FitzGerald's Special Affairs Staff, an independent unit handling Cuba at CIA headquarters, reverted back to being part of the Western Hemisphere Division in 1965. Shackley left Miami in mid-June 1965, after beginning the scale-down of what had been the frontline command post for the secret war."
