This high-quality version of President Kennedy’s 10/22/62 Cuban Missile Crisis speech is somewhat rare, because it is complete and unedited. Usually only small bits and pieces of the speech are presented on television and in documentaries. But this is the entire 18-minute address from start to finish.
VIDEO SOURCE (NARA):
‘For more than half a century the sight of a U.S. president here in Havana would have been unimaginable. But this is a new day between our 2 countries’

Ernesto “Che” Guevara (June 14, 1928 October 9, 1967), commonly known as Che Guevara, El Che, or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, politician, author, physician, military theorist, and guerrilla leader. After death, his stylized image became a ubiquitous countercultural symbol worldwide.
As a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout Latin America and was transformed by the endemic poverty he witnessed. His experiences and observations during these trips led him to conclude that the region’s ingrained economic inequalities were an intrinsic result of monopoly capitalism, neocolonialism, and imperialism, with the only remedy being world revolution. This belief prompted his involvement in Guatemala’s social reforms under President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán, whose eventual CIA-assisted overthrow solidified Guevara’s radical ideology.
Later, in Mexico, he met Fidel Castro and joined his 26th of July Movement. In December 1956, he was among the revolutionaries who invaded Cuba under Castro’s leadership with the intention of overthrowing U.S.-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Guevara soon rose to prominence among the insurgents, was promoted to Comandante, and played a pivotal role in the successful two year guerrilla campaign that deposed Batista. Following the Cuban revolution, Guevara reviewed the appeals of those convicted as war criminals during the revolutionary tribunals, ratifying sentences which in some cases utilized firing squads. Later he served as minister of industry and president of the national bank, before traversing the globe as a diplomat to meet an array of world leaders on behalf of Cuban socialism. He was a prolific writer and diarist, composing a seminal manual on the theory and practice of guerrilla warfare, along with an acclaimed memoir about his motorcycle journey across South America. Guevara left Cuba in 1965 to incite revolutions first in an unsuccessful attempt in Congo-Kinshasa and later in Bolivia, where he was captured with the help of the CIA and executed.
Both notorious as a ruthless disciplinarian who unhesitatingly shot defectors and revered by supporters for his rigid dedication to professed doctrines, Guevara remains a controversial and significant historical figure. As a result of his perceived martyrdom, poetic invocations for class struggle, and desire to create the consciousness of a “new man” driven by “moral” rather than “material” incentives, Guevara evolved into a quintessential icon of leftist-inspired movements. Paradoxically and in contradiction with his ideology, Che’s visage was also reconstituted as a global marketing emblem and insignia within popular culture. He has been mostly venerated and occasionally reviled in a multitude of biographies, memoirs, books, essays, documentaries, songs, and films. Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century, while an Alberto Korda photograph of him entitled Guerrillero Heroico (shown), was declared “the most famous photograph in the world.”
“The first thing to note is that in my son’s veins flowed the blood of the Irish rebels, the Spanish conquistadores and the Argentinean patriots. Evidently Che inherited some of the features of our restless ancestors. There was something in his nature which drew him to distant wanderings, dangerous adventures and new ideas.”
— Ernesto Guevara Lynch, Che’s Father

In Taipei, Mayor Ko Wen-je has used preparations for the 2017 Universiade as an example of the problems that result when business and politics become too close. Ko is attempting to get to the bottom of a number of contracts and plans that he believes are too expensive and opaque. He suggests that the problem comes in part from the high cost of elections and the favors politicians need to hand out to fund their campaigns. Ko Wen-jeTaipei MayorWe estimate that artificial or grass surfaces for the soccer fields will cost NT.4 billion. This number shows the high costs associated with holding a major sporting event.Since taking office Ko has repeatedly stated his belief that the Universiade is too expensive. His decision to directly intervene in oversight of the games has exposed, or resulted in, a series of problems. In a way, Ko feels that he’s blocking progress.The money being spent on the Universiade led Ko to reflect on his campaign costs exceeding original estimates. He says that without a change in election culture, the close relationship between politicians and business will never change.Ko Wen-jeTaipei MayorThere’s no way to reduce the high cost of elections. If your election costs are high, you need to find funding. Everyone knows donations come from enterprises. Everybody also knows that if you’re given a large amount of money, in the future you won’t be overly critical of the person who made the donation.Ko’s idea is reminiscent of how there is no such thing as a free lunch. Businesses that offer donations during election season will expect a return. Ko says he will need more time to understand the complex web of relations that is behind preparations for the Universiade.
