Sixty years ago, on April 17, 1961, a force of more than 1,400 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched an invasion at the Bay of Pigs on the southern coast of Cuba. Called Brigade 2506, their goal was the overthrow of communist leader Fidel Castro, who had taken power only two years earlier in the Cuban Revolution. The invasion disintegrated in a matter of days, with 118 killed and more than 1,100 captured. The fiasco cast a pall over President John F. Kennedy’s three-month-old administration and set the stage a year later for the nuclear showdown with the Soviet Union known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. American History TV and Washington Journal were live on April 17 to look back at the failed invasion and its consequences. Former CIA historian Nicholas Dujmovic, who now heads Catholic University’s Intelligence Studies Program, joined C-SPAN to discuss the event. close
