67th Recon Tech Squadron and Lee Oswald

My apologies if this has been discussed before.

The following is a paragraph from the book "Asia From Above: The 67th Reconnaissance Technical Squadron" by Colonel Roy M. Stanley.

"Most significant for the future of the 67th RTS was the establishment of Weather Squadron (Provisional)-3 at NAS Atsugi, Japan in 1957. This unit was also known as Detachment C (see Shadow Flights and High Cold War). This covert CIA Detachment conducted specifically sanctioned National Level U-2 electronic and imagery collection including overflights of the Soviet Far East, China and North Korea. Their mission replaced some of the most crucial and most risky collection once done by the increasingly vulnerable RB-50 and RB-45 aircraft of the 6007th Reconnaissance Group (Composite) which flew its last mission over Vladivostok in December 1956. The Japanese government was not told of the covert mission flown by the unique squadron at Atsugi because at that time we were still an Occupation Force. One of the Marine guards providing around the clock security for the WRSP-3 was Lee Harvey Oswald."

What is curious here is that listed as one of the senior CIA personnel assigned to Detachment C (as a Senior Communications Officer) during the 1957-1960 period was one John O'Hare.

FWIW.

What is significant about John O'Hare?

Thanks, Steve.

John O'Hare aka Col. William Bishop. One of the more stranger characters mentioned in Dick Russell's "The Man Who Knew Too Much".

If the John O'Hare who served with Detachment C is the same one referred to in subsequent assassination related material then things become very interesting indeed.
