Bay of Pigs: Declassified
by The History Channel
Saturday Apr 9th, 2005 7:05 AM
JFK later called it "the worst experience of my life." BAY OF PIGS DECLASSIFIED explores how much of this legendary disaster was his own doing.

It was the first foreign policy defeat of the Kennedy Administration and the first time a covert CIA operation was exposed to public scrutiny. Drawing extensively on documents that were kept under wraps for nearly 40 years, HISTORY UNDERCOVER® tells the complete story of the ill-fated invasion. Scholars and historians examine its place in the drama of the Cold War, and reveal how it still colors U.S.-Cuban relations. Examine an extremely rare report (all but three copies were destroyed) from the CIA Inspector General, which is sharply critical of the methods and procedures employed during the invasion. And see a Cuban propaganda film, captured during the invasion of Grenada, which features a full-scale re-enactment of the Bay of Pigs invasion with Castro playing himself!

Only now, decades after the disaster, is the complete truth coming out about one of the most infamous events of the Cold War.
