Anybody ever hear of the FBI's TROPUS Program?

Evidently one Pedro Diaz Lanz was included among the Bureau's "TROPUS program subjects"

-Bill

Bill, mark PDL as a "person of interest".

A brief perusal of TROPUS documents, it appears to have started after the assassination, and deals with not only the JFK case, but presidential protection in general.

Greg, PDL has always been on my top 10 list.

Or maybe...TROP=Tropical and US = United States -??

Who knows, :ph34r:

Bill, sorry, I meant "of interest" to FBI in relation to either JFK or presidential protection in general.

I considered that before looking at some of the docs, then ruled it out. It included keeping an eye on people who had been to Bloc countries and were known to be "disaffected" with the US.

Go to the FBI's JFK Assassination File, Section 180, p. 342 here:

TROPUS stood for Travel of the President in the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

It was a method of the FBI sharing information with the Secret Service on persons who were considered to be a threat, not only to the President, but also employees of federal, state and local governments and officials of foreign governments.

It was a program instituted after JFK's assassination.
