Who was QJ/WIN

Thanks for this. I think that if Mr. Black is a pseudonym for Altman, which is also an alias, as the document states, then possibly Mankel is an alias as well. Notice that Luxembourg is the source, which is curious because Arnold Silver, the COS in Luxembourg, the man who recruited QJWIN for William Harvey’s ZRRIFLE operation, is the man who as an interrogator for the Army Counter Intelligence Corps gave Otto Skorzeny a clean bill of health and recommended that he be released and allowed to go to Madrid, Skorzeny’s choice. Of course the agent named Mankel in this document who was sent to the Congo May not be QJWIN himself but an operative recruited by QJWIN.

Document referencing Jose Mankel and Jacques Berger, going back to 1955.

Can anyone provide a bio of Mankel that does not originate with CIA or use CIA docs as it’s only source? I can’t.

I am looking, Paul. I surely will not hold back if I find something. 1955 is pretty good though, no?

Yes and you are clearly on the research path.

13 page doc with a lot of good info on QJWIN.

QJBANNER-5 which is not in the MFF database

Michael,

 

The first thing that popped in my mind was the question, why was Mankel being sent to Dakar?

Do you think it had anything to do with the Mali Federation?

Once again I think QJBANNER is Arnold Silver

Paul,

We now have QJBANNER /1 and /5.

Am I correct that this makes QJBANNER an operation and the /x’s the associated operatives?

From other Docs, IIRC, his cover was to sell vending machines. With the art merchant cover, mentioned above, and, IIRC,  other covers mentioned elsewhere, it seems like his handlers were always trying to find him something to keep him busy.

I am also curious as to what signifficance Dakar plays.
