Bay of Pigs comparison
Don Bohning, the Miami Herald’s venerable former
Latin America editor and author of The Castro Obsession: Covert Operations Against U.S. 1959-1965, asked one of his sources to compare the current war in Cuba with the Iraq Bay of Pigs debacle. The source, Jack Hawkins, 91, was a military advisor assigned to the CIA during planning of the Bay of Pigs operation. The result was an article in yesterday’s Herald, a very interesting read.
