    In-depth Interviews with Tosh Plumlee

    Ron, Tosh used to be a member of this forum. I'm sure a lot of his old posts are still around.
  2. So, why would JFK be embarrassed by his thesis? What sore spot? https://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKPP-026-002.aspx

    Umbrella Man pic?

    Joe, Most of the pictures of Vidal and Hargraves seen on the net were acquired by James Richards from Vidal family members or Hargraves himself. His communications indicated that these people were indeed DCM and UM. Just something to consider.

    Umbrella Man pic?

    This is the second F-you. 11/22/64. These are Rip Robertson's commandos in the Congo. Robertson is 4th from the left. Juan Tamayo far left. Rene Garcia holding the umbrella. Garcia was Deputy Chief Air Operations Bay of Pigs. He also flew a B-26 during the BOP and was considered one of the more reliable pilots. 3rd from left possibly Ricardo Morales. Morales stayed behind an extra week with Alberto Perez. The other guys came home early Dec 1964. Disclaimer: other than Rip, I don't believe these guys had anything to do with Dallas although they knew a few things from Robertson.

    Umbrella Man pic?

    Based upon James Richards research and things I've learned subsequently, Umbrella Man was Roy Hargraves. His companion and good friend was Felipe Vidal Santiago. The reason for the umbrella was an F-you for the "umbrella" of air protection being removed from the BOP landing site. http://www.historynet.com/cold-war-bay-of-pigs-invasion.htm ‘Colonel Frank,’ the American commander in Guatemala, confided: ‘We’ll protect the invasion with an umbrella,’ he said. ‘The air will belong to us. No car can travel without being bombed. We don’t need more men.’ Disaster predicted became disaster realized. Although the invasion was on, JFK was keeping his word to the Alliance for Progress that the United States would not be openly involved in it. He reneged on the CIA promise that an ‘umbrella’ of U.S. fighters would protect the landing; the Navy would perform only picket duty off the Cuban coast; and there would be no follow-up strikes against Castro’s airfields.

    We should probably start a new subject on AMOTs. Here is two that are identified AMOT-32 and AMOT-62 https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=25583#relPageId=2&tab=page

    I think it's important also Larry. Of note, Sanjenis, Sforza, David Morales and Emilio Rodriguez were all very close and worked closely together. I'm sure Morales saw this report. B.A., how's that report coming? 🙂

    Interesting doc by Sforza aka Henry Sloman. Sforza was head of the AMOT program with Joaquin Sanjenis his number 2 (AMOT-2). This doc is referenced in Bill Simpich's State Secret Chapter 3. It is a report from AMOT-106 who visited the Cuban Consulate in Mexico City in August 1963. AMOT-106 was trying to get back into Cuba. Was this a dry run for sending LHO or an impostor to the Consulate? https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=21409#relPageId=2&tab=page

    LHO's SS number

    Number 607 - William Lowery. Would that happen to be longtime FBI informant Bill Lowery keeping an eye on LHO?

    CIA code name research

    AMCHALK-1 is Gustavo Villodo. Villodo was crucial in capturing Che. He literally knows where the bones are buried. http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/docid-32397869.pdf https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32397862.pdf https://www.thenation.com/article/the-death-of-che-guevara-declassified/
