April 21, 1967, 6:30 pm. President Johnson receives updated information about the military coup in Greece. In this new memo, National Security Advisor Walt Rostow explains that rather than being involved in the coup, King Constantine had the new leadership forced upon him. There are initial rumors of a possible counter-coup, but over the next several days and weeks, the new regime establishes power in Greece.
