P. 2 on this ZRRIFLE doc. had me excited, until the story of QJWIN just dropped-off.

4.  Operational assets

                1)  Personnel:  QJWIN is under contract as a principal agent, with the primary task of spotting agent candidates.  QJWIN was first contacted in 1958 through the Chief of the [redacted] by the Chief of Station [redacted] in connection with an illegal narcotics operation into the United States.  For a period of a year and a half he was contacted sporadically by COS, [redacted], in behalf of the Bureau of Narcotics.  Files of this Bureau reflect an excellent performance by QJWIN.

...

Looks like QJWIN was more FBN than CIA.

Dope smuggler.  Can't throw a rock in this case without hitting one.

I think this FBN agent is Siragusa.

QJWIN mentioned again on P.6, amidst some interesting entries.....

"... legal, operational and ethical moral problems.

1. Maximum ( garbled annotation) securty + within Kubark (CIA) only (e.g. , (garbled)..

does Siragusa (garbled garbled)? Limitations a number (garbled) clerks for enciphering and deciphering. Guise of LAURICLE object.

2. One focal point for search, Control, tracing, case-officer +PA  selection. Complete DDP authority in this focal point mandatory  (mandate?).

(Garbled) One man control here with own (non-station) (garbeled).

3. Every operation to be rigidly case officered; no silk-(garble) PA's.

-------------

Skipping this part, I have to go. Jumping to  QJWIN line. I hope to get back to this.

---------------

7. Avoid discussion with foreign officials until all possibility of search through private citizens (e.g. QJWIN ) has been examined.

8. Planning should include a provision for blaming Soviets or Czechs in case of blow. 4 above essential.

Siragusa talks to Fonzi and Gonzales. He used to work for Angleton and kept in contact with him.- http://documents.theblackvault.com/documents/jfk/NARA-Oct2017/2018/180-10077-10020.pdf

Some good info on Harvey. Anyone know what Silverthorne means?

Paul, you might be right. If my memory isn't quite full just yet, I think it was Arnold Silver that dealt with QJ/WIN.

Edit - just found this.

HARVEY uses agent QJWIN (recruited earlier by ARNOLD SILVER for use in an assassination operation against LUMUMBA) as the principle asset for ZRRIFLE.

Thanks for jogging my memory too - about Arnold Silver. 

I’ve read many CIA documents denying their involvement in Lumuba’s assassination. I’ve also read many reports claiming that Harvey’s ZRRIFLE operation was solely for recruitment of safe crackers and the like. I think these are cya documents.
