“NOV 13, 1960: Young officers revolt in Guatemala. A major grievance is the presence of the CIA-directed Cuban Expeditionary Force in Guatemala. President [Miguel] Ydígoras [Fuentes] calls for U.S. aid in putting down the rebellion, and Brigade planes strafe the rebels, helping to put down the rebellion.”
