Operation Mangosta
 
 

..

After the Bay of Pigs fiasco, the CIA prepared Operation Mangosta (Mongoose) as of 30 November 1961. The aim was to destabilize the Castro regime. Under General Edward G. Lansdale, this subversive operation, relying on Task Force W, had a $50 million budget, and involved 400 CIA agents and 2,000 Cuban exiles. It was to have been operational in October 1962, had it not been for the Missile Crisis which put paid to the whole scheme on 30 October.
