  1. John Newman's article on Veciana. https://whowhatwhy.org/2019/03/21/antonio-veciana-mystery-man-in-jfk-assassination-part-2/
  2. The CIA and 902nd sharing info on dangles, double agents and photos in Mexico City. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=158940&search=902nd#relPageId=41&tab=page From 1976 but the 902nd was at Homestead Air Force Base Fla https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=69033&relPageId=7&search=902nd
  3. Decent read on MI and army Intell. I don't see the 488th discussed. https://fas.org/irp/agency/army/evolution.pdf
  4. Hi Paul, I have not yet seen anything on the 488th but I'll keep looking.
  5. Here's one doc Steve. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=148763&search=autoboat#relPageId=7&tab=page
  6. More Colonels Steve. 🙂 Didn't Veciana mention that he visited Sam Kail at the American Embassy in Havana? Veciana was interviewed by JMAVE PM guy Cal Hicks, aka Carl Hitch, Calvin Carl. Hicks was under domestic cover as a member of the US Army. Owen Darnell, mentioned above, was a former captain for Lykes Steamship Co and was still employed by them in Puerto Rico. In that small world of LHO, this was the ship line that he used to go to Europe. He was also scheduled to use this company to go back to Russia Oct-Dec 1963. https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/mexico-city-part-2-the-trip-down-part-1 By our own David Joseph. His June 1963 passport application was approved and his passport issued. On this June 1963 application Oswald stated he would be leaving between Oct & Dec 1963 from NOLA on a ship (he took the SS Marion Lykes of the Lykes Brothers Steamship line from NOLA to Europe on his "trip" to the USSR in 1959) and he'd be gone 3 months to a year. Lykes Questionaire CE1948. The Lykes Brothers line is the same one taken by George DeMorenschildt on his trip back from Haiti thru NOLA to Dallas. (WC testimony of Mr. DeM GDeM testimony).
  7. Veciana was working for the ACSI - Asst Chief of Staff Intelligence for the US Army. Specifically Detachment A. The Miami Station was run by a Major Junius "Duke" Watlington. Veciana's contact in Puerto Rico was an Owen Darnell. Darnell was a spotter for Detachment A. The Second Front (SFNE) was run by ACSI. The CIA and ACSI often had to share assets and disagreed on how to go about it. Here's doc with Watlington, Lt Col. Causes and Reuteman (Shackley) discussing logistics.. https://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/2018/104-10069-10185.pdf
  8. This is Ed Coyle's interview before the ARRB. He gives a a good account of the George Nonte weapons investigation. He also reveals his relationship with the FBI, SS, Hosty, and Dallas PD. He was 5 blocks down from the TSBD and had to "rescue: James Powell who was trapped in the TSDB. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=201232&search=col_boyd#relPageId=1&tab=page Coyle was primarily responsible for all security inspections for both military & contract personnel for the 112th. As a collateral duty, he was the 112th's liaison officer, meaning he would serve as the contact to other agencies. He told me that I need to understand the role of army intelligence at that time. According to Coyle, the Army had more resources at it's disposal than the FBI. He said the FBI would continuously obtain information on various organizations from information which groups like the 112th obtained. He said that in the event of Marshall Law, the head of Army Intelligence would be in charge of activities, so the Army had good relations with many agencies & at all levels. I asked Coyle for a general description of his actions on 11/22/63, to which he said the following:-he was on duty that day-he met with Jim Hosty of the FBI & a guy (he can't remember the name right now) from the ATF that morning at the ATF building to discuss a non-JFK related operation they were working on-when the meeting ended (around the time the motorcade was approaching the downtown area), he & Hosty were walking at which point Coyle asked Hosty if he was interested in standing on Main Street so they could see JFK...Hosty said he needed to stop by the bank & then left Coyle...Coyle stood on Main Street waiting for the motorcadeas the motorcade approached where he was standing (approximately 5 blocks from Dealey Plaza), he saw JFK but is embarrassed by the fact he didn't really pay any attention to Jackie or the Connally's because he was surprised that JFK's head appeared to be so out of proportion to his body-after the motorcade passed, he proceeded to his office building where he bumped into his supervisor named Lt. Steve Weiss while traveling the stairwell...They decided to have lunch & proceeded to stop by their office for a moment when they heard reports on the radio about the shooting-he thought it was a shame that Hosty took a lot of heat re: the assassination & (not of his doing) he wasn't even really part of the security preparations... In telephone conversation with Mr. Stephan Weiss (former lieutenant in 112th INTC Group Dallas office at time of the assassination, and former supervisor of Ed Coyle), Doug Horne was told by Weiss that he now desires not to discuss his assassination recollections any further. ARRB staff is preparing a letter to Mr. Weiss encouraging him to meet with Gunn/Horne during their visit to Texas.8. On March 11, Wray, Barger and Masih met with Office of Naval Intelligence officials at ONI's Suitland headquarters. https://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/ARRB-Emails/ARRBmails10636.pdf I have only one puny comment: the letter can be construed as saying that Weiss has refused to discuss with us ANYTHING from the Montague call. However, if I understand his most recent stance correctly, it is that he doesn't want to talk about whatever-it-is that happened in 1982. I think that, as a matter separate from prying out any secrets he might have regarding the 1982 incident, we still want to pursue with him a fuller, more detailed account of his experiences on 11/22/63 and information about the 112th INTC Group. I think it would be advisable to make this distinction -- and maybe it's a way to make sure you do see him in Houston (i.e. if the other matter is still unresolved, use the Houston session to talk strictly about the assassination and his experiences, thus getting that information on the record AND presumably doing some confidence building at the same time to make him more amenable to opening up on the other topic. . .) https://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/ARRB-Emails/ARRBmails46132.pdf
  9. De Vosjoli on French TV June 1975. Frank Sturgis was also a guest. https://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/2018/104-10130-10088.pdf
  10. Motto was still not talking in 1977. And he was still badmouthing Abe Bolden. http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/NARA-Nov-2017/docid-32252132.pdf
  11. Identified by David Butler. According to this Arturo Fernandez De Castro Rodriguez is the brother of MM-635-S https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32330440.pdf Which presumably makes him Juan Fernandez De Castro Rodriguez ? https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32330439.pdf
  12. Ron, JMATE as described at the Mary Ferrell website - Overall Cuban operations, including the Bay of Pigs project. Known as JMARC before this cryptonym became compromised in December 1960, and then became JMATE. Used for Cuban operations well into 1962. The P stands for pseudonym. I can only guess that they pseudos are for Rip Robertson and Grayson Lynch. Possibly Col. Frank Egan.
  13. Allen Dulles giving his commendations to the members of Project JMATE 11/18/61. http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/NARA-Nov9-2017/104-10194-10035.pdf
  14. Interesting doc. A few new crypts. WIROTH-1, another CIA agent, tries to recruit QJWIN to join assassination gang. Station says WIROTH "exceeding instructions." WIROTH trained in small arms, demolition and "medical immunizations." Looks like they were going to use these "vials" against Lumumba. O'Donnell claims that when he got there, COS Leopoldville had vial of virus in safe to use against Lumumba. http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/2018/157-10004-10068.pdf
