US to release documents taken by GIs in Grenada

Skip to next paragraph

The Reagan administration says it will soon release selected documents captured on Grenada last fall, including a secret speech by the late Prime Minister Maurice Bishop in which he outlined his plan for deceiving the United States into thinking his revolution was non-Marxist. He delivered the speech, stamped ''Confidential'' by Grenadan authorities, to a closed meeting of his New Jewel Movement on Sept. 13, 1982.

Mr. Bishop led the Grenadian revolution from 1979 until he was executed by leftist opponents on Oct. 19, 1983.
