Contesting Castro

Thomas G. Paterson

Oxford University Press

As U.S. officials protested rebel wickedness against the Cuban economy, they increasingly wondered about the Communist ties with the 26th of July Movement. They also have tough time with persistent question of the U.S. military connection with the Cuban regime. The three issues—attacks on the American business interests, possible Communist influence in the insurrection, as well as the continued U.S. military linkage with a crumbling government—became conflicted in the American mindset. Ambassador Smith hammering of the spread of Cuban anti-American sentiments, the Communism threat, and Batista's need for U.S. aid to dismantle the Castro rebellion did not influence U.S. government to the suspension of arms.

Keywords:   Cuba, communism, 26th of July Movement, Smith, suspension of arms
