JFK: Lessons in Leadership

JFK: Lessons in Leadership
BY STEVE ADUBATO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
COMMENTARY

It was clearly Kennedy’s most significant and embarrassing public failure in his three years as president. Many leaders would have found it impossible to recover from such a devastating defeat. It was a three-day battle that began on April 17, 1961. As our commander-in-chief, Kennedy made the fateful decision to take the advice of top military leaders and allow for approximately 1,500 "Cuban exiles," who were supported by American military training and equipment, to invade what was known as the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. American military personnel were also involved.
