  1. Ron, I think John Newman describes it best. We are looking at an out of focus puzzle with pieces missing. We're left with finding new pieces and see if they fit this puzzle. I like this analogy and I'm stealing it! 🙂 And that's what Larry is doing with Tipping Point. Putting in those pieces.
  2. Ron, William Kent was Joannides supervisor during the summer of 1963 using the pseudonym of Robert Trouchard . Kent reported to Phillips during the Cuba Project/BOP using the pseudonym of Douglas Gupton. Here's Trouchard/Kent working with AMBUB-1, Jose Miro Cardona. Signing off as C/Ops is Stanley Zamka aka David Morales. He would often just signoff with a "Z". https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=65504&relPageId=2&search=trouchard Here is Kent/Trouchard as Newby/Joannides' supervisor signing off on his fitness report. https://www.maryferrell.org/show
  3. There is always this - https://www.maryferrell.org/pages/Tipping_Point.html Or this - https://www.maryferrell.org/pages/Essay_-_The_Wheaton_Lead.html
  4. Larry/Steve. Great discussion. Do we know just when in June Cisneros visited Odio? Cisneros was a CIA asset that was reporting to his case officer Alfonso Rodriguez aka Willard Nauman. A-Rod reported to SAS chief Dez Fitzgerald and was a one of the main players in the Split the Regime project. He was previously a special assistant under William Harvey. A-Rod was mostly concerned with the JURE autonomous operations branch of this. The others being AMTRUNK, AMWORLD and the AMLASH/Cubela operations. Manuel Ray would also meet with A-Rod but tried to maintain his independence from the CIA. T
  5. She was under consideration as an Intelligence Officer. She was "rather goofy." https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=51783#relPageId=2&tab=page
  6. As John Newman says, the CIA often had a black op contained in a standard operation. If I was a conspiracy minded individual, I'd say that Sforza was coordinating with Phillips as part of Phase One - LHO was a communist and Castro had JFK assassinated. Like getting his asset Gilberto Alvarado to fabricate that he saw Oswald accept $6500 from a "red headed Cuban" at the Cuban Consulate to kill JFK.
  7. Sloman/Sforza was to call Choaden/Phillips at the office or at home. This doesn't actually prove that Phillips answered. And where was Phillips' "home" on 11/22/63? This was the woman that Sloman/Sforza was to meet. AMHALF's wife - https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=45337&search="olga_rosquete"#relPageId=2&tab=page Sforza was involved in Juanita Castro's defection (AMSTRUT-2). Sforza aka Frank Stevens aka Enrique - https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=180702#relPageId=3&tab=page Tony Sforza was also working on recruiting Azcue during the summer
  8. Hi Tracy. Bill Simpich provides some good background on the plots to assassinate Castro in the summer of 1961. Jim Bouling was Jim Pekich. Pekich organized the networks that still existed in Cuba. Carl Hitch was Cal Hicks. Hicks was a paramilitary officer that worked on the Cuba Project/BOP. He worked with some of the Cuban recruits in the New Orleans area along his assistant Guy Vitale. Hicks was Veciana's CO up until 1962 when Veciana lost his POA and joined up with Eloy Gutierrez-Menoyo's SFNE. In 1962 Hicks and Vitale would work for Bill Harvey as part of the PM staff for T
  9. The thing is Veciana did tell some truths. He and some of his compatriots were recruited by "Bishop" and did try to assassinate Castro. It just wasn't Maurice Bishop and it wasn't David Phillips. I suspect that he had quite a bit of extra funds that he raised as part of his Alpha-66 activities and needed an explanation as to how he got(kept) these funds of $263,000 and claimed that Maurice Bishop gave him that sum. Was he really that valuable? Heck the CIA only paid Gustavo Villoldo $30,000 and he helped capture Che as a "technical advisor" to the Bolivian Government. https://www.maryferr
  10. Steve, Duque and Diaz-Garcia were reportedly seen together in 1973 long after Diaz-Garcia was killed during the 1966 infiltration into Cuba. So were Duque and Diaz-Garcia associating in 1963? This is from William Turner. Turner had some things wrong here. Commandos Mambises was the brainchild of David Morales, Ted Shackley, Tom Clines, Stephen Mangello (alias) and Bob Moore.
  11. The navigator/captain of the Violin III was Remigio Arce. Arce would later join AMWORLD and in 1964 would work with Rip Robertson in the Congo. Arce was a friend of Herminio Diaz-Garcia and Frank Sturgis. I'm sure Greg Wagner has some good pics of all these guys.
  12. http://www.historynet.com/cold-war-bay-of-pigs-invasion.htm ‘Colonel Frank,’ (Col Frank Egan) 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.’ 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. Rip Robertson fourth from left.
  13. I thought this was the high point of the evening. Leave the guns. Take the calamari. 😀 https://www.boston.com/news/politics/2020/08/19/rhode-island-calamari-dnc-video
  14. Matt, That is a great find. So, if I'm reading this right. Diaz-Gracia was a Major in the Army Reserve in 1965?
  15. There was early interest by the FBI concerning Diaz-Garcia. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=193177#relPageId=2&tab=page
  16. Here's a selection of photos of Diaz-Garcia. https://tangodown63.com/diaz-garcia-herminio/
  17. So, if de Torres was Leopoldo, who would he be Angel/Angelo? Who was de Torres hanging around with in 1963? It wouldn't be Murgado. More than a few researchers believe it was Herminio Diaz-Garcia.
  18. Matt, I've been called Steve and worse in my life. No worries. 🙂 Some years ago, Tommy Graves described a picture of a guy in the film that had a scar above his left eyebrow. I do not believe that the guy was Morales. Morales was too busy to go to New Orleans to work with Oswald. He had guys to do that for him.
  19. Hi Matt, I assume it's the Pizzo film. Thanks!
  20. I suspect that the Valkyrie discussion was related to a section of the Unconventional Warfare Program Alpha/Alfa Study written by Col Jack Hawkins. Hawkins was the Chief of Military Ops for the Cuban Invasion. I can't seem to find the complete study but only the comments and discussion about the original study. And if you are bored and have sometime to read, here are some of my notes. 8/26/63 Hawkins Program Alpha https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=10310&search=%22Col_Hawkins%22#relPageId=1&tab=page Alpha being looked at again. 10/8/63 from 9/11/63 submi
  21. Hey Ron, I thought it was mentioned somewhere in this very large post on Morales. I just can't seem to find the picture that Morales was being compared to.
  22. Does anyone have the photo/still of the guy that was seen with the scar when LHO was passing out leaflets?
  23. I believe Rolando Otero was one of the main leads. Fonzi had interviewed him and Otero gave more than a few names including de Torres. Otero was a member of the Golden Falcons parachute team along with Tony Izquierdo who according to Hemming was a the spotter for the DalTex shooter. De Torres was a CI - Cooperating Individual for more than a few alphabet agencies including the BNDD, later the DEA, FBI and BATF/ATF. He claimed he worked for Pentagon Intelligence.
  24. Greg, I cannot confirm that that was the photo shown to Odio. Fonzi said that he had shown her quite a few though.
