332. Do you understand Nixon's role in the Bay of Pigs?

Gee, why should Nixon have even been involved in anything like that at that time?

Prescott Bush was instrumental in Nixon being in high office. George H W Bush was involved in CIA front Zapata Oil at the time of the Bay of Pigs operation. Nixon later appointed Bush to be US ambassador to the UN, then he later became head of the Republican Party. Gerald Ford, who pardoned Nixon and was a Warren Commissioner, appointed Bush as director of the CIA. Ford may not strike one as being of the same ilk as Nixon and Bush, but you can read an AP report of his handiwork here:

A lot of records have yet to be released, so I wouldn't give up hope on learning more about the Bay of Pigs connections.
