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:
