John,

Did you author this?

I think it is interesting, but you appear to make a few unsubstantiated claims, I would be curious to your sources. For example for these:

The first meeting chaired by Barnes took place in his office on 18th January, 1960, and was attended by David Atlee Phillips, E. Howard Hunt, Jack Esterline, and Frank Bender.

Over the next few years Operation 40 worked closely with several anti-Castro Cuban organizations including Alpha 66. Bernard L. Barker, Frank Sturgis, Tosh Plumlee, William C. Bishop and David Morales also joined the project. Cuban figures used by the Operation 40 included Antonio Veciana, Luis Posada, Orlando Bosch, Roland Masferrer and Eladio del Valle.

Guilty. Three main sources:

(1) Fabian Escalante, CIA Covert Operations 1959-62: The Cuba Project, Ocean Press, 2004 (pages 41 to 59)

(2) CIA Inspector General’s Report on Plots to Assassinate Fidel Castro (1967).

(3) A source who wishes to remain anonymous.
