Bay of Pigs Fiasco

It took over 35 years, but the facts behind the Bay of Pigs finally came to light.

The CIA's own internal investigation was burned with only a few copies put away for safekeeping.

Bottom line: The invasion was doomed before it started and the CIA knew it, but they dreamed that the Cuban people would greet the invaders with open arms. (Sound familiar.)

Kennedy made the right call by refusing to provide air support or involve US ground troops.

A window into the incompetence, dishonesty, and recklessness of the CIA.
This is one of the reasons why Kennedy wanted to dismantle this group and this probably led to his assasination.
