David Talbot : Angelo Murgado


Recommended Posts

From the Leonard Lopate show, an interview with David Talbot about the Kennedy brothers, Jack and Bobby:

Good interview Mike, thanks.

"I met with one, a man named Angelo Murgado, a Bay of Pigs veteran, who warned Bobby that there was dangerous talk about the president in these circles. They even tracked Oswald to New Orleans, these informants for Bobby, and they reported back to Bobby that this strange gringo, Oswald, was up to something, and they didn’t know exactly what. But he seemed odd to them."

Hm, I know many think that Murgado has no credibility in the context of the Odio episode. Do doubts of his credibility go even deeper though? Is Talbot quoting someone very iffy?

I think Talbot hurts the book by not mentioning Murgado's involvement in the Odio incident. It feels like he hid Murgado's purported involvement in order to bolster his credibility in other areas.

Finally on Pat's comments about Angelo Murgado and why I found his RFK/Oswald story credible. Big discussion, and happy to go into it further with you, but suffice it to say for now, that I DID take note of his version of the Sylvia Odio story (in my end notes) -- which, like you, I find dubious. I think he was trying to blur his and Bernardo De Torres' possible connection to Oswald, for obvious reasons. But I believe he was on more solid ground with his RFK/Oswald story.

I DID take note of his [Murgado's] version of the Sylvia Odio story (in my end notes) -- which, like you, I find dubious..... [meaning Murgado's story is dubious, but my end notes are not]

But I believe he [Murgado] was on more solid ground with his RFK/Oswald story.

So you can believe some of what Murgado says all of the time, and all of what he says some of the time.....

Is there a secret algorithm for deciding when Murgado is operating on honest time, and when he's really operating in the opposite direction?
