Sixty years ago, on 17 April 1961, a brigade of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) trained Cuban exiles landed at the Bay of Pigs. These exiles were part of a covert US plan, developed in the final year of the Eisenhower administration, to invade Cuba and overthrow Fidel Castro. Eisenhower had previously used the CIA to overthrow problematic regimes in Iran in 1953 and Guatemala in 1954.
