Response to Mika (Original post)

3. I talked to an individual that was part of the invasion.

Castro had infiltrated their units. The Cubans under Castro, knew when, where, how many. They were contained in the area they landed. They were supposed to have made into the mountains and were going to try and duplicate what the Castro brothers had done. The invaders never stood a chance.
How did the CIA learn the number of Russians on the island? They were studying aerial photos of Cuba. Then some one noticed the number of soccer fields in those photos. The Cubans do not play soccer, the Russians do. So by counting the soccer fields they could come up with an educated guess as to the number of Russians there.
