What Kennedy Didn't Know [electronic resource]: Cuban Missile Crisis Revisited

ABC News Productions
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
In 1962, President Kennedy knew that nuclear missiles had been deployed in Cuba. What he did not know was how many, or that 36 of them were capable of reaching as far as Washington, D.C. In this ABC News program, George Stephanopoulos reports on another danger that also went unrecognized at that time: Soviet submarines armed with nuclear torpedoes-and the authorization to fire them. In addition, Barbara Walters elicits Fidel Castro's views on the crisis in an exclusive interview, and Ted Koppel talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Haynes Johnson about what it was like to be on the scene during the most dangerous confrontation in history.
