Dulles Relays the Lumumba Assassination Order to Congo CIA Station Chief Lawrence Devlin

Given the language in this historic cable--signed by Dulles--from CIA HQS to the Congo, there can be no mistaking that assassination was 1) exactly what the president had in mind at the NSC meeting, 2) what Gordon Gray had in mind at the Special Group meeting, and 3) what Dulles had in mind in his instructions to Station Chief Lawrence Devlin.
