321. Note From Robert Pastor of the National Security Council Staff to the President’s Assistant for National Security Affairs (Brzezinski)1

At your request, I called the CIA today and asked them to make sure that the information on the Cuban presence in Grenada was being placed. I was informed that it was being placed in newspapers in [less than 1 line not declassified] but they had no direct way to do it in [less than 1 line not declassified]—as they had originally told us. They said that they expected newspapers in [less than 1 line not declassified] to pick up the articles from the Latin countries. I really wonder whether it wouldn’t make sense for us to look much more deeply into the way they implement decisions like this.2 (S)
