Removing our Jupiter missiles in Turkey


Those missiles were obsolete and we were planning on removing them within six months. That was part of the deal in getting the Russians to remove their missiles from Cuba but only on the condition that it was not to be made public in any way shape or form or it would negate the entire deal. That factor was addressed in "Thirteen Days" but I'm surprised it wasn't in this movie.

Because Thirteen Days contains released info not available in 1974, just over a decade past when the events occurred.Thirteen Days also doesn't have the important meeting RFK headed to brain storm solutions.
