"Various sources when you engage in a large operation. Unless you have operational security. That's very tight people talk. This happened with the Albanian operations in late forties and early fifties. Various other operations that Chinese operations that we mounted in the early to mid nineteen fifties when you get people together, they will talk and Castro is no something is up even before this. He's trying to penetrate these operations with his own people you hire a bunch of Cuban exiles. How many of them are one hundred percent of them anti-castro or has Castro sent one or two penetration agents, and it's good counterintelligence. So a very good question. So multiple sources, and it gets worse. So I'll get to that. So another factor in the planning that turned out to be a mistake was a requirement that Castro's air force be destroyed. I. So that the Cuban exile pilots in their CIA provided b twenty six's pretending to be Cuban air force. Would have commanded the air. That was requisite. That was prerequisite for the success of this operation. See I recruited some help. They recruited pilots from the Alabama national guard to assist there was to be one air attack two days before d day for the Soviets landing allegedly by these Cuban air, force pilots who were disgruntled decided to shoot up their own planes. And that's why these the CIA's b twenty six's were painted to look like human air force plans the day before the invasion to be twenty six. Exile force would come back to Cuban airbases to destroy any place that remain. So to airstrikes command of the air was essential. And this was one of several things that had to go well for the success of this operation yet. Another problem came from president Kennedy's desire to maintain deniability that the US had nothing to do with this. We didn't like Castro, but these are independent patriotic Cubans acting on their own. A month before the invasion. He ordered another landing site be found away from the town of Trinidad populated center, you know, people will find out early. This is long before the internet, but they might take pictures. It'll be too noisy. See I had four days to shift all of its planning to another location, and they've found it at the fairly remote. Bay of pigs is on this map here. Obviously. Right away from populated centers. But closer to Havana closer to the Cuban military and air force. Also was surrounded by swamps. Let me go to that slide. Go. Oh. The Zapata Peninsula gave this relocated operation its name. So this became operation Zapata again, they Opik surrounded by potus swamps. It's far away from the mountains where you hope the exile force will be able to melt away into to become that beacon of freedom for large numbers of disaffected anti-castro Cubans. That's the theory. Unknown to the planners was the fact that the bay of pigs was actually Castro's favorite place to go fishing snorkeling. Vacationing he knew it very well which really helped when he arrived on scene to help lead the defenders. Also, unknown was that there were coral reefs, and rocks that complicated. Navigation. The operations planners had looked at the imagery. And concluded that those darker water were seaweed. Coral reefs. That's why Castro like to go snorkeling there. A good place to go. Let me read to you a couple newspaper reports from the day. This is dateline New York April tenth. So this is a week before the invasion, and it's Alistair Cooke is writing for the guardian of the United Kingdom mystery of coming invasion. Another three hour harangue from Castro last night has failed to clear up the mystery of the coming Cuban invasion who is training at where it is to be mounted from who's is the dominant power in exile. And what the United States administration is going to do about it. Also in the guardian that day was an editorial since president Kennedy came to power he has done much to restore American prestige in the uncommitted world. But if recent reports of a projected invasion of Cuba launched from American soil and carried out with the connivance of the American intelligence service. Come true then much of president Kennedy's. Labour will have been in vain. No, one will believe that a group of Cuban exiles, however, burning their grievances could assemble a force of sufficient size and with sufficient equipment, unless they had the backing of the American government. Dr Cardona the leader of the anti-castro Cubans has denied that the Central Intelligence Agency is implicated in his plans. This may be true. But reports from American sources suggest that it is not intelligence during the Kennedy administration on American history on C span radio. We're hearing from Catholic university. Professor nNcholas do mortgage. Richard Vissel, the head planner. For the operation said in nineteen sixty seven few years later, we didn't realize the extent to which it was believed by everyone everyone else that this was a US government operation. Kerley. See I wasn't reading the newspapers. I'm being. Critical of my former agency because it deserves to be criticised on this. On april. Fifteenth nineteen sixty one two days before the invasion. The first wave of air attacks by six b twenty-six is fewer than planned for damaged many Cuban planes on the ground, but failed to destroy them all the attacks alerted the Cubans. It's coming. Got the attention of the United Nations where the UN ambassador Stevenson found himself to be lying about US non-involvement in this operation. Kennedy president Kennedy had ordered the first airstrike to be smaller than plan Ford. And then he canceled the second planned air strike. See I was afraid to recommend at that point that the vision be cancelled even though everyone knew at least on CIA side that without command of the air. The invasion was doomed they're afraid to give that kind of bad news. Which is you think about it is is uncharacteristic. I mean intelligence is in the bad news business. But this is a case where they call it falling in love with your operation. They had all fallen in love with it. And we're not willing to end it at that point. Okay. When the invasion force arrived on April seventeenth it faced a fully mobilized Cuban military with command of the air as well. Castro on scene effectively directing the defenses his forces quickly disable the two supply ships landing craft that needed ashore put a small exile force onto the beach where they fought valiantly for three days. Kennedy refused requests to have US navy aircraft provide combat support combat air support. To CIA chartered airplanes from the Alabama Air National Guard dropped munitions and supplies on the beach for the rebels, but those were shot down the four pilots between the two aircraft died. They are stars on as memorial wall. Regatta to five oh, six surrendered about twelve hundred survivors were taken captive taken prisoner. So it's a debacle afterwards. This was humiliating for the United States government and personally for president Kennedy. It was a great victory for Fidel Castro. And there was a lot of bitter recriminations and finger pointing going on Kennedy's advisers and pro Kennedy historians ever since have placed all the blame on CIA. For its mistaken assumptions and planning for deceiving. The president about its chances for success and on the other hand CIA people at the time and his defenders ever since. But not me. Have admitted that there were planning errors but insists the invasion could have been successful. If it had been allowed to work as planned failure. They say is Kennedy's fault for cancelling that second airstrike for refusing US military support he's blamed for moving the landing site and even for liking covert action too much. The chief planner again, Richard missile. Here's a brilliant, man. Who also was the project manager for the YouTube aircraft. And also the follow on the twelfth. He and director Allen Dulles had to resign. In his memoirs Vissel says I sincerely believe that even with the plans faults as long as we were able to move ahead with airstrikes and destroy Castro's air force. The brigade would still win the day, at least to the extent of establishing a beachhead. And then what it is also possible. He said he wrote. Now, we in the agency were not as Frank with the president about further deficiencies as we could have been telling admission. There was an internal report by the inspector general CIA Lyman Kirkpatrick saying that. If I had been more careful in its planning. It would have realized that there was no effective organized resistance to the Castro regime that could have rallied to help the invaders Castro's forces were firmly in control of Cuban society, the vastly outnumbered any invasion force and the terrain offer. No help at all. He said why should have cancelled the invasion cancelled the operation, even though it would have been embarrassing to the agency. He said cancellation. Yes, would have been embarrassing, but it would have reverted failure. Which brought even more embarrassment. Carry death and misery to hundreds destroyed. Millions of dollars worth of US property and seriously, damaged US prestige is right about that. There was an internal rebuttal to the inspector general's report the director of operations said the air strikes were crucial to success without them. There could be no success the defeat was attributable to a long series of Washington policy decisions. So. There. You have a foot fairly common situation. Something goes wrong. Something big goes wrong. The intelligence folks blame the policymakers the policy makers blamed the intelligence, folks. Thus was fulfilled. The ancient saying in Washington, there are no policy failures. They're only policies successes and intelligence failures. Now, my view is that there's plenty of blame to go wrong. Go around I think the historical record shows that there were plenty of failures on both sides for intelligence people. I think there are some clear lessons from the pigs policy. People can come up with their own, but for intelligence people, you know, one of the lessons learned is do not plan for covert action or any kind of intelligence operation. Clandestine collection human intelligence technical intelligence that requires every part of it to go perfectly for any of it to succeed. Secondly, do not undertake over to operate that have already been described in the New York Times. Third. Make sure your agencies experts are involved in the planning the ones who know the most about the area you're going into if they are not cleared from the for the project. Well, you should damn well, clear them. Do not be afraid of communicating clearly to the policy people the risks and consequences of failure of every part of the plan. And this takes courage, but intelligence people should be prepared to stand. Toe to stand down and walk away from any operation that does not make sense operationally or even politically. Remember, the policymaker may want deniability more than the conditions. You've established for success on the policy side. There were huge implications. US prestige was damaged to be sure the Soviet Union tried to take advantage. The Soviet premier Khrushchev concluded that Kennedy was weak and indecisive. And so demanded that the western powers, abandoned, Berlin. As you know, at the end of World War Two Berlin was divided into east and west between the Soviet Union and the western allied powers. Khrushchev said that west Berlin was a threat. To east Germany Kennedy himself blame CIA for putting them into that position. He briefly considered breaking up into its various missions or business areas and distributing it throughout the government. That was justifiable anger on his part. But he got over that he also considered replacing Allen Dulles with his own brother, Robert Robert Kennedy, like working with the agency. But he was savvy enough politician to realize that that wouldn't work very, well, it's not really career enhancing for politicians to. Director. So he turned that down. Now, just a few months after the bay of pigs debacle. Kennedy is meeting with the Soviet premier in Vienna at their summit crash off berated Kennedy for American imperialism and said Soviets are going to get tough regarding Berlin. In august. This is four months after the bay of pigs. These germans. Acting on orders for Moscow erected the Berlin Wall, cutting off east Berlin from west Berlin, the communist called it the anti-fascist protective wall, but it was really meant to prevent east Germans from escaping to freedom in the west against what communist do the US consider this illegal act that did not risk war to stop it. Kennedy. However, renewed the US commitment to the freedom of west Berlin and Christoph having built a wall. He backed down on any further threats this became yet. Another Cold War standoff Christoph, however was looking for a way to advance the Soviet position in the Cold War. Some sort of fate accompli surprise move that would change the strategic balance in Moscow favor as we all know. And this is the accelerated history of that he did that by quitting Soviet missiles in Cuba, secretly believing that by the time the United States discovered them it would be too late for the Americans to do anything about it. But as you know, the US government did discover them. Discover them early Kennedy told Khrushchev to take them out or else after some tense days. Khrushchev back down nuclear war was averted and Kennedy was the hero only to be tragically cut down by an assassin's bullet a year later, and that's the history. People. Remember American history on C span radio this week a class on the intelligence during the John F Kennedy administration by and large. It's true. And it's highly dramatic this dramatic story is largely an intelligence story. It begins with a Soviet military intelligence officer who volunteered to work and provide intelligence for CIA British service. Am I six? Oleg Penkovsky intelligence began as the bay of pigs operation was ending. And he continued as an espionage asset well into that summer of nineteen sixty one as Cold War tensions are mounting. He was a well-placed Colonel in the Soviet military organization called the grew GRU. He reports on what he learns in meetings about Soviet strategy towards the US. He photographs secret Soviet military documents, including probably the most helpful one is our two missile manual translation here, the are two is a medium range ballistic missile, RBM. Of the Soviets. He passes these things to see ya. CIA and six case officers, he provides high level Soviet policy papers, he even tries the war in the US ahead of time about that. The Berlin Wall is going up, but he can't do. So in time above all he conveys impressions that the Soviet leadership is not as confident as they appear.
