Aerial Photograph of Missiles in Cuba (1962)

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?doc=94

Rating: 2, High!

Description: Throughout 1962, in the midst of the Cold War, the movement of Soviet personnel and equipment to Cuba had aroused suspicions in the American intelligence community. In response, U.S. ships and planes began photographing every Cuba-bound Soviet vessel, and U-2 spy planes began regular reconnaissance flights over Cuba. On September 13, Kennedy warned Soviet Premier Khrushchev: "If at any time the Communist build-up in Cuba were to endanger or interfere with our security in any way . . . or if Cuba should ever . . . become an offensive military base of significant capacity for the Soviet Union, then this country will do whatever must be done to protect its own security and that of its allies." These photographs showed that the Soviet Union was amassing offensive ballistic missiles in Cuba and precipitated the Cuban Missile Crisis. Standards 10.9.3 and 11.9.3
