25. Then why did Ike authorize the CIA

to form a paramilitary group to overthrow Castro? The main idea was to recruit Cubans to fight, but when an action like that is undertaken, it requires some military backup, as JFK found out and refused to give. Nobody would understand that the military would get drawn in better than a general who commanded the allied troops in the WWII European theater. Regardless of what Ike SAID, he had to know that his authorization of the CIA to overthrow Castro would result in troop involvement.
