In the original broadcast of this story, the following quote was included, but not identified: "We had warned Fidel — I personally met with him — that any further military intervention on Cuba's part in Africa ... would ... make it impossible for us to move forward on normalization of relations. And that's, of course, exactly what happened." That was a sound cut of Robert Pastor, an adviser to President Jimmy Carter, that was mistakenly included in the story. We have removed it.
