In this 1979 Video Averell Hariman talks about Kennedy and the Bay of Bigs. At 4min 50 of the video, he says, quote: It would have been almost impossible, I think, for him (Kennedy) to have called it off, at least some people think so, because there were so many of the...of the...Cubans that knew about it and there would have been a major uproar about it. But it should never have been undertaken...for it would have been difficult to do...And then...he (Kennedy) realized that was a mistake and a BLOT against him. Close Quote Is there a typo in the transcript of his interview(which you can read at the right of the video)?? Shouldn't it be transcribed that way?: ... he realized that was a mistake and a PLOT against him? (Kennedy) The term blot against him makes no sense to me ... Therefore, what Harriman says in this video, is, that he (Harriman) knew, that Kennedy realized in the wake of the Bay of Bigs, that it was a PLOT against him, (by Dulles and others), to draw him into a major Cuban war, with the navy involved etc. ... that the failure of the brigade was intentional, to create a situation to force Kennedy to use US military ... which could have been the prelude to a major war ... Again, the term blot against him makes no sense ... or am I mistaken? KK
