  1. This 4 part interview is approximately 2 hours in length. The normal constraints imposed by time limitations, typical of conferences, were suspended. Len allowed me sufficient time to describe these events in more detail than I've ever been afforded in the past (121 minutes versus 20 minutes). AssassinationOfJFK.net -- The Bay of Pigs: Details
  2. 53 years ago today an attempted coup was launched against Fidel Castro in Cuba. Due to sabotage it failed miserably. The history of the fiasco was later contrived, pivotal events were fabricated, blame for the failure was misdirected, and false co-conspirator patsies (anti-Castro Cubans) were created for use as suspects for the Crime of the Century 2.5 years later in Dallas. Today we know that JFK did not promise direct US military support of any kind including US jet air cover (see documents). Indeed, he specifically made it clear that none would be forthcoming. I did a presentation on the Sabotage at the Bay of Pigs for John Judge and COPA last year for the 50th Anniversary. The PowerPoint of that presentation can be downloaded at this link. The entire "Sabotage at the Bay of Pigs" presentation is on my YouTube Channel, including "A Revolution of Mind" and can be viewed below:
  3. I hope that students seeking the history of the Bay of Pigs find this interview enlightening. Semper Fi, Gerry-- Burnham & Hemming Audio Interview
  4. Jake Esterline Interview here: “I am one of those who feel it is very wrong to pick too much on Jack Kennedy because it was Nixon who, if we had kicked off as we had hoped for, between November and January of 60-61, it might not have worked, but it would not have been a major disaster.” — Jake Esterline. Serious students of the Bay of Pigs need to read this interview in its entirety.

    New Website!

    Please visit my new website: www.AssassinationofJFK.net I have posted numerous articles and items of interest. I will be adding a large number of never before heard audio interviews over the next weeks, months, and years (yes, I have that many!) with Colonel Fletcher Prouty, Gerry Patrick Hemming, and others. You will note a large collection of Cuba documents in raw form, as well. This will also grow as time permits. Thanks to Stan Wilbourne for assisting me in the setup. His attention to detail is stellar. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
  6. I just uploaded The Official History of the Bay of Pigs Volume 1 Part 3 here. This Volume focuses on Air Operations. The author is obviously a CIA historian, who was in their employ. Pfeiffer gets a lot of this right as far as reportage goes. However, he continues to obfuscate the record by drawing erroneous conclusions based on faulty, unsupported assertions in key areas. He "almost" gets it right. Unfortunately, he would apparently prefer to miss the mark rather than allow the real blame to fall where it should: CIA screwed the pooch. When the opportunity to speak to the president was offered to Cabell and Bissell in order to prevent an imminent disaster that a misconceived instruction from the Secretary of State was about to cause--they declined.
