You forgot to include the fact that JFK changed the landing site from the City of Trinidad to the Bay of Pigs, dooming the plan even before the air cover was pulled:

I recently learned that while my father was in the Army at this time, they were all told to grab their gear and live ammo and get on a plane. The flew around for several hours before they landed back at the same base. He didn’t know what was going on until later. The CO was instructed not to tell them anything while they were on the plane.

You’re right and I did. I also should have made it clear I was talking about air cover ON the beach which was promised to the insurgents up until they were actually on the beach. Kennedy sentenced those men to death and knew he was doing it when he did it.
