Bay of Pigs Invasion
|Date||May 20 1961|
|Exposed by||Tad Szulc|
|Description||A probably deliberately failed attempt to invade Cuba by the CIA. This was very possibly an attempt to entrap JFK into full scale military action against Cuba.|
Fletcher Prouty reports that an investigation into the failure of the Bay of Pigs Invasion by John F. Kennedy determined that the key operational error was a failure to destroy all of the Cuban planes, which allowed them to destroy the supply boats for the invaders. This was traced to a miscommunication by McGeorge Bundy.
