This is one of the most corrupt plans for covert action ever submitted for Presidential approval. [Many covert operations are outside of Presidential review in order to provide plausible deniability, or the protection provided by the ability to publicly deny knowledge of something. People with plausible deniability may know what they are technically able to deny. In this case, Kennedy would see a list of potential operations, but may never know which would be chosen.]
The heads of every branch of the military gave the president a list of potential operations meant to promote the invasion of Cuba. Most of the options involved civilian casualties, or the death of fictitious civilians. They considered it possible to simulate the death of civilian airline passengers, by creating the identities of false victims. All of the operations involved large-scale public deception only possible with foreknowledge of wide media complicity.
