I received this image from the family of a well known covert operator and contract officer for CIA. The officer’s widow would like to know who these gentlemen in the cropped photo are and gave me permission to post it here.

I have it on good authority that these guys were part of, or associated with the AMOT team and Operation 40, the Anti-Castro counter-intelligence group that was run by CIA officers at JMWAVE. Trying to ID these guys has proved difficult. If anyone has some intelligent suggestions, advice or recognizes anyone in the photo, please let me know.

Zack,

The guy in the middle in the back looks kinda familiar.

Any idea when the photo was taken?

I can only speak for myself, but the photo made me think back to the incident of Oswald leaving the court hearing after

the fracas (August 9, 1963?) between Carlos Bringuer where Oswald was fined and was detained....WDSU, [i would

imagine it was] cameras showed newsreel footage of Oswald walking out of what looked like a drugstore, and as he

was about to walk out the door, there were at least three Cuban's, in his path. He walked past them & they looked very

unhappy about the fact that they were on camera. I never was able to determine who the Cubans were in the footage,

but the photo reminded me of what they might have looked like much later, not all of them, but the one on the far left.....

FWIW

This is a great place to start Pat. There are similarities but nothing concrete in my mind. With Howard's Bermudez comment we could be onto something as well. Too bad we can't get honest and accurate info from Felix Rodriguez or, say, Bernardo De Torres lol...

The man second from the left is San Jenis.

Good work, James. That is indeed Joaquin San Jenis, the chief of Operation 40. Close associations include David Sanchez Morales and his Case Officer, Tony Sforza.

Much disinformation surrounds this man. Can we please put to bed the idea that he was the doorman at the Dakota building when John Lennon was shot? Ludicrous theories like this belong in the toilet.

Just for good measure, find attached another image of San Jenis.
