US to release documents taken by GIs in Grenada

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.
