285. Memorandum for the record, June 251

[Facsimile Page 1]

Special Group (Augmented)—Special Operation MONGOOSE—21 June 1962

General Lansdale’s report of 20 June was received and noted. It was his suggestion that the Group call for a new SNIE on Cuba in the immediate future. This was considered and it was decided that preparation of a SNIE at this particular time would not be productive and that we should order a SNIE prepared and issued on or immediately after July 31st.

ACTION: National Board of Estimates do the preliminary work on the SNIE assembling all information currently, so that the SNIE will be forthcoming on or after July 31st.
