Document 39: Where are the IRBMs?

Roger Hilsman, Director of Intelligence and Research, to the Secretary, "Removal of IRBMs from Cuba," 16 November 1962, Secret

Source: Taylor Papers, box 6, November 1962

State Department INR tried to account for the deployments of intermediate-range ballistic missiles in Cuba. The Soviets had removed 42 MRBMs, and U.S. intelligence was able to confirm that through visual sightings on cargo ships. But U.S. intelligence had trouble determining whether any R-14 intermediate-range ballistic missiles that had been deployed. While launch sites for the R-14s and associated equipment had been detected, U.S. reconnaissance never identified the missiles themselves. While the Soviets had planned to deploy 2 R-14 regiments, with a total of X missiles, the ships carrying the missiles did not reach Cuba before the blockade. Only the Aleksaandrovsk carrying the warheads for the R-14s arrived in Cuba. [17] Hilsman tried to account for the possible shipment of IRBMs and argued that "presumptive evidence exists that some IRBMs were in Cuba." Thus, the "burden of proof that there arr none there … rests on the Soviets."
