...Bay of Pigs Invasion The failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion is attributed to several factors ranging from planning to operational inefficiencies. In any case, it appeared that such a failure was almost inevitable considering the manner in which the whole operation had been planned and executed. One core aspect in this regard was the government’s insistence on noninvolvement. In this regard, the training locations of Guatemala and Nicaragua were very unsuitable. The CIA was much worried about the training being conducted in Florida or Puerto Rico which were nevertheless appropriate. The location of the invasion was also very inappropriate considering the lack of an escape route at Bay... Failure of Bay...
