José A. Pérez San Román, after being captured at the Bay of Pigs by the Cuban defenders who battled the Miami CIA directed and financed mercenaries.
José A. Pérez San Román, like Alan P. Gross today, was used by the United States government while trying to interfere in the internal affairs of the Cuban people.
Pepe San Román, was a captain in the army of of U.S. supported puppet General Fulgencio Batista.
He was designated by the CIA as the military “leader” of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion.
In an article published today by Cuban daily Juventud Rebelde it is revealed that “the real boss was U.S. Colonel Jack Hawkins, who led the fighting from his bunker called Quarter Eyes, in a shack in the Pentagon, the United States.”
It also states that “the Operations Chief was a U.S. citizen by the name of Jacob Esterline, and the Intelligence Chief was a mysterious American called Bill.”
This last American official, who didn't know shit about the Cuba of 1961, told Pepe San Román: "You have an absolute military superiority. The enemy will not have an Air Force. In the Escambray there are 700 fighters waiting for the landing to join you. In the boats there are weapons and ammunition for 6,000 men. In the first three days the Brigade will join more than 5,000 men in the village. Yourself, San Román, take a jeep, continue along the road, make a left turn hand signal, and go directly up to Havana."
The rest is history!
