Another interesting forum at JFK Library

CIA Overview of the Missile Gap  
Monday, September 26, 1:00 to 4:45 p.m.    
Preceding the Kennedy Library Forum on the 50th Anniversary of the Missile Gap Controversy, there will be a special CIA-sponsored conference. 
JFK meets with Khrushchev
In September 1961, President Kennedy was officially notified by the CIA that the United States had surpassed the Soviet Union in missiles, dispelling the notion of Soviet superiority in the arms race.

The CIA has commissioned a special report to analyze this history and is sponsoring two panels on the challenges of intelligence analysis and the implications for US policy with a former CIA Director of Intelligence, a former head of CIA's Guided Missile Task Force, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Threat Reduction, and others. Free copies of this report, containing newly declassified documents, will be available to the public. 

All forums are free and open to the public. Reservations are strongly recommended. To make a reservation, you may either call 617-514-1643 or click here.
