In 1975, “we” (President Gerald Ford, under Henry Kissinger’s influence) allowed foreign branches and subsidiaries of U.S. companies to trade freely with Cuba and persuaded the Organization of American States to lift its sanctions.

The Emiliano Zapata Unit, a Bay area radical group linked to the Weather Underground, would make the hits.
