The CIA's intelligence assessments had been in direct conflict with those coming out of the higher level joint intelligence council. Because of that Angleton was tasked with an independent evaluation of intelligence and counter intelligence related to Cuba. In that project he made use of Cuban personnel trained by Morales - reconstituted into he Cuban intelligence group at JM/WAVE. As I've noted before, Morales was virtually the only person in the project to receive a glowing recommendation for his own work in the Cuba project. Later, when Harvey was tasked with supporting the Mongoose project and specifically with assassinating Castro, he appears to have gone to Angleton for advice on a number of areas, including where and how to effectively hide the project within the CIA itself. Angleton made introductions for him and also appears to have utilized some of his own foreign contacts who had assets inside Cuba - for what exact purpose is unclear. Ahhh I see. Abundant thanks for the research. Very fascinating research especially when you read Harvey's notes on creating scapegoats, false 201 files, etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
