The library declassified and made available for research recordings of four meetings between President Kennedy and his highest level Vietnam advisers in late August of 1963. This release consisted of Presidential Recordings tape numbers 104, 106, 107, 108 and totaled 13 hours, 11 minutes, of which 37 minutes remain classified. The tapes reveal President Kennedy's reservations about U.S. support for a military coup in South Vietnam. These meetings were the first ones to take place after Cable 243, which has been described by historians as the "single most controversial cable of the Vietnam War". The telegram was drafted on Saturday August 24, 1963, when President Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, and CIA Director John McCone were all out of town. The telegram set a course for the eventual coup in Vietnam on November 1, 1963 leading to the fall of President Diem and his death on November 2, 1963.
