Which of the following was not a consequence of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis?
The event listed which was not a consequence of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis was the Bay of Pigs Invasion. It was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency-sponsored rebel group Brigade 2506 on April 17, 1961.
Shortly before midnight on April 16, 1961, a group of some 1,500 Cuban exiles trained and financed by the CIA launched an ill-fated invasion of Cuba from the sea in the Bay of Pigs. The plan at the time was to overthrow Fidel Castro and his revolution.
As noted in Wikipedia and other reference sources, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, leaders of the U.S. and the Soviet Union engaged in a tense, 13-day political and military standoff in October 1962. The crisis started over the installation of nuclear-armed Soviet missiles on Cuba, just 90 miles from U.S. shores. To help end the situation, President Kennedy secretly agreed to remove U.S. missiles from Turkey. The Soviet Union agreed to remove its nuclear missiles from Cuba. A Moscow - Washington hotline was then created and the heads of the two nations came up with a solution, ending the immediate threat of nuclear war. The entire world breathed a collective sigh of relief.
