During February of 1964, there was some movement of Cuban assets (including Manuel Artime and Rafael Quintero) into various training programs part instructed by Zamka (David Morales). Two other agency men involved were James D. Zaboth and James E. Beckhoff. Amyone have any idea who these guys really were?

Try misspelling names whenever possible in doing JFK/CIA related searches. For example, try searching "Beckoff" instead of "Beckhoff." It may not provide what you're looking for, but will yield results you wouldn't obtain otherwise.

Hey John!

Based upon documents, Zaboth was Airtime's case officer. Beckhoff recommending Zaboth for Morales training assumes / implies a chain of command. Zaboth officially AM/WORLD 1964. I was under the impression that perhaps Irving was associated here - don't believe so - on the basis of the flight arranged by Zaboth for Airtime, etc. - best educated guess below.

"Hecksher was CIA Station Chief in Japan (1959-60) before becoming involved in the project to overthrow Fidel Castro. As the case officer of Manuel Artime, Hecksher became involved in AM/WORLD in 1963. Carl E. Jenkins oversaw paramilitary support and also served as case officer Artime's second in command, Rafael Quintero. According to Larry Hancock (Someone Would Have Talked), Hecksher and Jenkins were both "involved in the Artime's initial travel to Europe for contact" with Rolando Cubela."
