The Huffington Post reports that the United States is moving to establish full diplomatic relations with Cuba. This is clearly a direct consequence of the Cuba Protest Rally that Nadav Safran and I co-chaired at Harvard on April 26, 1961, nine days after the ill-begotten Bay of Pigs invasion authorized by John F. Kennedy and stage-managed by the C. I. A. It is not often that private citizens like me are able to alter the course of world events, and I must say it feels good.
