Cuban President Fidel Castro (3rd row, R) enters a public trial for captured members (seated) of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in Havana. Forty-five years after it defeated a CIA-trained invasion force at the Bay of Pigs, Cuba still sees the U.S. as the biggest threat to its socialist society. 1,500 Cuban exiles, organized and armed by the CIA, came ashore April 1961 in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro's government. The invaders never got beyond the mosquito-infested swamps surrounding the Bay of Pigs, as Castro's fledgling revolutionary government scrambled to defend itself.
