In 1963, the focus of USAF Chief Curtis LeMay was cancelling the President's order to withdraw 1,000 military personnel from Cuba by the end of 1963. 'Bombs Away' had every intention of making US President John F Kennedy's National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) #263 a dead letter. His forces had saved the Cuban Brigade from defeat at the Bay of Pigs. OK so there had been some major counter-insurgency ever since. Fidel Castro was creating more trouble 'in country' than he could have ever caused in the Presidential compound in Havana. Still, this was no longer just the CIA's war, it was now his also. No way was he going to pull out now. The first American military defeat could be on some other loser's record.
