Enough of revisionism. Fidel Castro asked the US for support and only turned to the Soviet Union after US rejection. Also, note that the boats that landed in the Bay of Pigs were named the Barbara J and the Houston, having sailed out of a Bush Sr. oil refinery in Southern Mexico. The problem was that propertied Cubans were diappropriated, and that Castro challenged the Monroe Doctrine. Please be a little more nuanced and balanced about coverage of a botched CIA operation on behalf of US corporate interests. Check history out a little further please, npr
