Another look at Watergate....down the rabbit hole.
These are the five Watergate Burglars and for those that have not been paying attention they deserve a second look.
James McCord, was a career intelligence operative who worked for both the FBI and the CIA over a period of many years.
He was an FBI agent in the period leading up to WW2 and joined the CIA after the war. He officially retired in August of 1970 a few months before Watergate.
Bernard L. Barker, was a Cuban American that was once the assistant to the Cuban Chief of police. He moved to Miami after Castro took power. He was recruited by both the FBI and also did work for the CIA.
DALLAS police detective Seymour Weitzman, picked out Barker's photo as a man he confronted on the grassy knoll just after the JFK Assassination and testified under oath that Barker presented Secret Service identification to him. According to the Secret Service, no agents were stationed there during the shooting.
Eugenio Martinez was another anti-Castro Cuban that was involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion. Like Barker he has been suspected by some JFK researchers as being involved in the assassination. One source claims that Eugenio was a spotter in the Dal Tex building and that Virgilio Gonzalez was a shooter he was spotting for.
Frank Sturgis was perhaps the most interesting of all the burglars and is the only one that was heavily involved in the Bay of Pigs operation that was also involved in the Watergate burglary that the CIA disavowed. They claim he was in no way shape or form ever affiliated with them as a contract employee or otherwise.
He was a member of operation 40 which has always been ground zero for assassination researchers that link anti-Castro Cubans with the assassination of JFK. He was also directly involved with several attempts on Castro’s life. In January of 1960 Sturgis and Marita Lorenzo both were involved with a failed attempt to poison Castro. Marita would give testimony under oath that Sturgis along with other members of Operation 40 were involved in the JFK assassination.
Not arrested at the scene but later charged and convicted of the planning of the burglary were G. Gordon Liddy, a former FBI agent and E. Howard Hunt, a career CIA officer who “retired” in late 1970.
Nothing more than a “third rate burglary?” I don’t think so.

Incredible connections… thx for heading down the connect the dots rabbit hole!
Douglas Caddy, a friend of mine was the first attorney of record for the folks in this photo…and E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy.
As an interesting side note, Liddy arrested Timothy Leary prior to the party at the Watergate.
James Walter McCord Jr. was a second lieutenant in the Army Air Force, serving as a bombardier during World War II, and graduated in 1949 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas. He was an FBI special agent before joining the CIA in 1951, and in 1965, he received a master’s degree in international affairs from George Washington University. McCord told the Ervin committee of an abandoned 1972 White House plot to steal certain documents from the safe of editor Hank Greenspun's Las Vegas Sun. Greenspun was an associate of Robert Maheu, the top Howard Hughes aide who liaison the CIA and the Mafia in 1960. McCord testified that his fellow Plumbers, were to have carried out the break-in and theft of the papers and that Hughes interests were to have supplied them with a getaway plane. What was in the Greenspun documents, blackmail type information, or something more? McCord wrote, “If Richard Helms goes and the WG (Watergate) operation is laid at the CIA's feet, where it does not belong, every tree in the forest will fall…” Alfred Baldwin, a former FBI agent who was recruited by McCord for the Watergate operation... revealed to Shane O’Sullivan that McCord told him he was in Dallas on the day of the Kennedy assassination.
