May 19, 1965. National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy is in the Dominican Republic, and he calls in to the White House Situation Room and updates LBJ friend and advisor Abe Fortas on developments.

In the Archives we now have both the telephone recording dictabelts and the National Security File documents, so we have reassembled them for you. Listen to the call here—and follow along!
