The Quiz: Operation Mongoose was a CIA mission to remove what leader from power?
Explanation : After the failure of the Bay of Pigs, President John F. Kennedy’s adviser and brother, Robert Kennedy, began work on a plan to remove Fidel Castro from power in Cuba. The plan, called “Operation Mongoose,” included the controversial option of assassinating Castro. According to “The New York Times,” FBI director J. Edgar Hoover learned that the CIA was in contact with the mafia, however there was no indication the Kennedy administration knew about the reported assassination plan. Like the Bay of Pigs, Operation Mongoose ended ineffectively, and Castro remained in power.
Correct Answer: Fidel Castro
