  1. Did Herminio Diaz Garcia really die in 1966?

    I'm still looking Larry. :-) In the meantime, these may be of interest: http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/NARA-Nov9-2017/104-10071-10311.pdf http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/docid-32323289.pdf

    Larry, let me find the ref. I know I had just seen it in a bunch of docs I've been looking at.

    Thanks Larry. Notice that both at one time worked for Santo Trafficante.
  4. Did Herminio Diaz Garcia really die in 1966?

    Bill, I'm going to make a somewhat educated guess, and say that the "Cuban exile source" was Bernado de Torres. Some believe he was "Leopoldo" to Diaz Garcia's "Angel." "A Cuban exile source stated that he believed subject to be identical with the narcotics trafficker in Costa Rica. There is no further information to substantiate this." http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/NARA-Nov-2017/180-10097-10488.pdf http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/NARA-Nov9-2017/104-10070-10181.pdf
  5. Bill Simpich's State Secret

    Thanks. I never could type. Fat fingers and all...
  6. Bill Simpich's State Secret

    The FBI contacted Piedra to see if he knew where LHO was. Prior contact? http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/docid-32312674.pdf
  7. General Walker and Lee Harvey Oswald

    I'd recommend reading Gayle Nix Jackson's book, Pieces of the Puzzle, about this episode. She interviewed Robert Surrey's children. They and their father were in the house at the time.

    Sherry, Looks like Gerry didn't really try. http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/docid-32323653.pdf

    I'm not sure if this is new info. Geoffrey Sullivan with Robert Gentzkow on a bombing run 8/31/63. https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32272289.pdf
  10. David Christensen

    I don't think so. He's this guy - Great find by the way.
  11. David Christensen

    Ron, that would be Eugene Dinkin.

    Does anyone know what became of his claim? Seems to have been highly classified. If I remember right, I think Larry Hancock had something about this intercept. https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32270296.pdf https://www.nsa.gov/news-features/declassified-documents/jfk/assets/files/jfk00235.pdf https://www.nsa.gov/news-features/declassified-documents/jfk/assets/files/jfk00233.pdf
  13. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Thanks Ernie. This is a huge help for those of us that look at these subjects. Sure beats microfilm and fiche. For those of us that know what fiche is....
  14. Veciana and "Mr. Bishop"

    Steve, Commandos L (Tony Cuesta's group) became the action group after they split from Alpha 66.They had the boats and the money to run ops. They often were of "POA" to both the Army and CIA. These guys were the real professionals and were mostly apolitical. They were so highly thought of that the Special Group used and considered them for operations. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [...] 3. Cuba a. The Group then turned to consideration of the paper from the Coordinator of Cuban Affairs dated 12 August 1963, "Support of Autonomous Anti-Castro Groups. In answer to questions, Mr. Cheever said that the project for support of Commandos L would be useful but not essential. He felt that the economic damage which this group might inflict would probably be comparatively minor. On the other hand there would be some psychological advantages to be gained, and also such operations would serve to keep the Cuban security forces busy. In view of the personal interest expressed by Mr. McCone in the project when it was tabled at the meeting of 15 August, it was agreed that no decision should be made until after the DCI's return. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT: Minutes of Special Group Meeting, 5 September 1963 PRESENT: Mr. Bundy,. Mr •. Johnson, Mr. Gilpatric, and Mr. McCone. Mr. FitzGerald was present for Items 1 and 2. Mr. Colby was present for Items 3-5. ... 2. Cuba : Support of Autonomous Anti-Castro Group The Group then turned to further discussion of the paper from tile Coordinator of Cuban Affairs dated August 13, on the subject of Commandos L. In response to objections stated at earlier meetings to the use of a British base, Mr. FitzGerald said that it would be feasible to take off from a point in the northern Bahamas, rather than from one of the keys very near Cuba. This would considerably reduce the dangers of hot pursuit. Mr. Johnson said that purely apart from the British problem, whether or not such a change in location would alleviate it, he does not feel that the type of activity proposed accomplishes the agreed objective of reaching internal resistance elements. The Chairman, Mr. Gilpatric, and Mr. McCone all felt that support of this group in the manner outlined, should be considered as action additional to that designed to contact the resistance. Further, they felt that it would be perfectly feasible, and in fact necessary, to avoid any involvement with the British in this matter. It was finally decided that Mr. Bundy would discuss the proposal with higher authority, noting the reservations expressed by Hr. Johnson. In the event of favorable reaction by higher authority, Mr. Bundy will talk further to Mr. Johnson. Mr. McCone said that he would like to see more activity of this general nature and asked whether this could be accomplished if larger numbers of Cuban personnel were obtained. Mr. FitzGerald replied that the problem is not numbers but the degree of training and competence. In this connection, he noted that the Artime group should be ready to go in November.

    David, no doubt. I was told that this Mr. Bishop was a lawyer in "real life."
