373. ACCENT ON ANGOLA (1989)
Cuba expert and member of the Venceremos Brigade, Kenneth Jones recently
returned from trips to Cuba and Angola. Jones provides detailed information
and insight into the history and current state of struggle by the government
of Angola as it faces the U.S.-backed rebel forces and the American-supplied
South African forces trying to overthrow the government. Interspersed with
Jones comments are sections recorded from Cuban TV of three one-hour
documentaries about the Cuban armed forces' participation in the defense of
the Angolan government. Relevant portions of previous programs with former
CIA case officer John R. Stockwell are also interwoven into the program.
John ran* the Angolan program** for the CIA in the early 1970s.
