This Day in History

On this day in 1961, U.S. trained Cuban exiles launched an ultimately unsuccessful military invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs. This event is a Rorschach test of history. Many, including me, see it as incipient Democrat treachery; Kennedy gave the CIA the green light, then refused to supply the necessary air support. Others will continue to see the failure at Bay of Pigs as the result of the stubborn power of Fidel Castro, and our deserved come-uppance.
