I want to take this opportunity to report on the conclusions
which this government has reached on the basis of
yesterday’s aerial photographs which will be made
available tomorrow, as well as other indications, namely,

their missiles and related equipment are being crated, and
the fixed installations at these sites are being destroyed.

of this work through a variety of means, including aerial
surveillance, until such time as an equally satisfactory
international means of verification is effected.
-John F. Kennedy, 1962
