UNITED STATES: Eisenhower and the murder of Lumumba

Robert Gard does not endorse Miles Seeley's skepticism:

"Assassination, quite properly, is no longer acceptable US government policy. Eisenhower may well have employed it. It was still in fashion during the Kennedy administration. Attempts on Castro's life, approved by the President, are well-known. When John McCone took over the CIA after the Bay of Pigs, he refused to involve the agency in further attempts to kill Castro, incurring the anger of Bobby Kennedy, Attorney General and the President's closest adviser."
