John F. Kennedy continued:
"But in the two years since that revolution swept Fidel Castro into power, those promises have all been broken ...
... All political dissenters have been executed, imprisoned, or exiled.
All academic freedom has been eliminated ...
All major newspapers and radio stations have been seized.
... And all of Cuba is in the iron grip of a communist-oriented police state.
Castro and his gang have betrayed ... the Cuban people."
