Interesting interview...........

+++++++++++++++++++++

I did not know JFK met secretly with Eisenhower during the continuing (unbeknownst to us) crisis, they had to quickly fill Ike in on what was going on to get his input on how to handle it.  Said that Ike, while a Republican, made a decision when the crisis occurred that he would support the president and do what he could to help.
