Publisher's Summary

Remembering the Bay of Pigs invasion on this edition of Fresh Air. April 17th marks the 40th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, in which Cuban exiles trained by the CIA unsuccessfully tried to invade Cuba and overthrow Castro. Peter Kornbluh of the National Security Archives edited the new book Bay of Pigs Declassified. Among the documents released is the agency's post-mortem on the disastrous invasion, written after a six-month investigation. It was one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Cold War. Recently Kornbluth organized an international conference in Havana on the Bay of Pigs. Also we hear from the chief of the Cuban interests section here in the US, Fernando Ramirez. A talk with two individuals involved in the invasion: Alfredo Duran, who was 24 years old when he was part of the Brigade 2506, the group that invaded Cuba; and Robert Reynolds, who was chief of the CIA's Miami station during the Bay of Pigs. (Broadcast Date: April 16, 2001)
