  1. Thanks Greg. Much appreciated. To reach any kind of understanding of the assassinations in the 1960s one must study Robert Emmett Johnson. He is a very important character indeed. Zach
  2. Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara's murder on 9 October 1967, in Higuera, Boliva was a huge victory for CIA's war on Communism in Latin America. Shortly after, there was an informal gathering at CIA headquarters to celebrate this great accomplishment. Top brass and the best of the back alley operatives who were in on the Op were there for the fete, David Sanchez Morales among them. This is documented. Pictured below are two men at said party. They are unknown. Does anyone recognize them or have any idea as to who they might be? Zach
  3. Hi Joe, My friend Pablo wrote a book on this subject: http://www.amazon.com/After-The-Bay-Pigs-Liberty/dp/1489550682 He knew both RFK and Mr. Donovan personally; he was right there and this book should answer all your questions. Zach
  4. I received this book [“Absolute Proof” by Robert Groden] as a Christmas gift and I feel inclined to take a few minutes and write about it. There is no Amazon page for this book and I want to pass along this information. I hardly ever write anything negative, but this book is $75 plus $10 shipping, depending on how you got it, and people need to know what they are getting into if they are dumb enough to order this thing. I do not buy many books related to the JFK case as many are completely worthless from a historical perspective. This one is no different, save for some pictures; but if yo
  5. Last night, on CNN's Piers Morgan, Oliver Stone made an appearance to chat about a variety of topics such as bullying in the NFL, the NSA and his new Blu Rays coming out of The Untold History and JFK, the 50th Anniversary edition. The following clip shows a portion of the interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jmtl2R1gML8&safe=active Interestingly enough at the end, Piers asks the self defeating question, "Will we ever know?" And Mr. Stone replied that there are always people digging up new things... Curioulsy, the clip ends there. He went on to add that the CIA is still holding fil
  6. Good work, James. That is indeed Joaquin San Jenis, the chief of Operation 40. Close associations include David Sanchez Morales and his Case Officer, Tony Sforza. Much disinformation surrounds this man. Can we please put to bed the idea that he was the doorman at the Dakota building when John Lennon was shot? Ludicrous theories like this belong in the toilet. Just for good measure, find attached another image of San Jenis. Zach
  7. Thanks, James. What Stavis Ellis said in his interview with Jack Moriarity is very important. First, he is saying that Martino hired the shooter. Oswald, of course, was not the shooter. He is likely referring to someone like, Sandalio Herminio Diaz Garcia. I have little doubt that Oswald knew and mixed with the crew who set him up in the time leading up to the assassination. This would include Diaz Garcia and Tony Cuesta as well as Richard Case Nagell. Then he mentioned that Oswald was hired by the #2 man at the TSBD, a Cuban. James is likely correct in his assertion that this man
  8. So I wanted to follow up on this thread for the any of the many of you out there keeping track of it. I was chasing down a lead following a document. I found Cliff Fenton and spoke to him on the phone. He is a great guy, getting up there in age. The document in question was from Larry Hancock’s excellent book, NEXUS. Larry is a prominent member of this forum and maybe he can comment here if he sees fit. Anyway, the HSCA document was an interview of Stavis Ellis of the DPD. Ellis served in the military during WWII and was in the military section of the DPD. He was the motorcycle officer
  9. Great image, James. Thanks for posting. Zach
  10. I received this image from the family of a well known covert operator and contract officer for CIA. The officer’s widow would like to know who these gentlemen in the cropped photo are and gave me permission to post it here. I have it on good authority that these guys were part of, or associated with the AMOT team and Operation 40, the Anti-Castro counter-intelligence group that was run by CIA officers at JMWAVE. Trying to ID these guys has proved difficult. If anyone has some intelligent suggestions, advice or recognizes anyone in the photo, please let me know. aroberts@heidelberg.edu
  11. Seamus texted me To say This forum officially Jumped the shark By allowing this topic To stay On the front page for so long. Seamus went on To say He is embarrassed By all this weird attention He is getting On an Assassination Forum. Seamus then said Play me Candle in the Wind, The one where Sir Elton Wears the weird wig Down Under. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoOhnrjdYOc Goodbye.
  12. Thanks for reviving this classic thread, Steve. It seems that this old topic has been removed: Oops. Perhaps it was deleted on accident. Johnson is a pretty interesting character worth studying. Zach
  13. Zach, who are the guys in the photo? HSCA investigators? Thanks, BK Hi Bill, The guys in the photo are from the HSCA: from left to right - Jack Moriarty, Jim Kelly and Cliff Fenton. From The Last Investigation by Gaeton Fonzi: Chief Investigator Cliff Fenton , once a top-ranked New York homicide detective, had a tough time keeping up the morale of his staff investigators. After being told he would be given the freedom to conduct a wide-ranging probe after the required “restricted issues” were handled for report purposes, almost all his staff was fired in a sudden “budget crisis.”
  14. Does anybody know if former NYC homicide detective and HSCA Chief Investigator Cliff Fenton is still around? If so, I'd like to get in touch with him. If anyone has any information at all, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Zach
  15. Very good, Tommy, I do think Capehart was one of a series of guys using the name Oswald in Mexico City during that Sept-Oct time period in 1963. Again, I don't trust Duran's testimony as she has a 'soft file.' Its interesting bringing up umbrella man; I was looking at his height not long ago. Approximates etc. I was thinking around 5'9"-5'10". Damon's height is listed in a Mary Ferrell document. Don't have the link handy, I have files overflowing on my computer but is should be an easy find. It's funny, I looked at the Damon file first and it has him as 6'1". I just now found the Cap
  16. Hi Tommy, Sorry for any confusion. You mentioned he was holding an umbrella; so I just wanted to say he looks nothing like the Umbrella Man aka TUM. Not in appearance or dress. I seem to remember a Congo thread with a similar umbrella reference back in the day. Neither that Cuban or CBC was the Umbrella Man. And yes, we were talking about the blond Oswald. Awesome work on the picture once again. Great job. Zach
  17. Hey Tommy, Thanks for reviving this classic thread. Glad you got to see the images. One thing to remember about Duran is that she has a 'soft file' with the Agency, so I don't put much stock into the specifics of her testimony. George Damon aka Claude Barnes Capehart was around 6'1". Great find on the image; I've never noticed that before. I don't think he matches TUM's description we see in the images, but very interesting nonetheless. Nice work. Zach
  18. Thanks, John. As Jenkins' resume shows, he is a most fascinating individual. Jenkins trained everyone of significance within the Cuban Project during the lead up to the Bay of Pigs and a bit after. He is still around these days; probably still doing a little "consulting," as these guys never really retire. Zach
  19. The Ship Barbara J was named after GC Jullian's wife, NOT HW Bush's. Associating the assassination of JFK with HW Bush is a stretch at best. If one is actually interested in 'research,' and not just googling and poorly written books; look into David Sanchez Morales. All the answers are above and below him. FWIW Zach
  20. Yes, that is the same Francois Schirm; a veteran of the FFL and the Hungarian revolution. He is an interesting character who spent some time as an anti-Castro instructor in South Florida and mixed with the likes of Gerry Hemming, Steve Wilson, Roy Hargraves, Ed Collins, Col. Bob Brown, and Robert Emmett Johnson. Translated from the link: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Schirm And here: Zach
  21. Tony Izquierdo's case officer passed away over the summer: http://www.caller.com/news/2012/jun/14/harold-feeney-retired-navy-commander-former-dies/
  22. Hi Paul, I don't think you are crazy and I do think your thoughts have merit. It is very possible that someone who worked with Phillips in the Miami/Havana milieu used the Bishop name and also was closely associated with David Morales. Sure Phillips used the name, but I think we need to dig a little deeper here regarding the identity of the Maurice Bishop we are looking for. Zach
  23. Awesome stuff David, thank you. Do you know what the last colorized image is from? I don't think I have seen it before. The Weaver image is very interesting in that in the full version you can see numerous windows open on the 5th and 6th floors. Here is a nice image of retired FBI agent Wesley Swearingen. Zach
