Ted Slack, John Blumer and Saul Sage


Recommended Posts

Ted Slack was a Miami businessman [insurance/real estate] who belonged to a local chapter of the John Birch Society. Ted, like many of the other "Birchers", wanted to assist in the anti-Castro fight; but, they never really figured out how to do that. We refused any type of cash funding, as that would draw too much attention from Fidel's agents, especially those who were on the FBI & US Customs Service payrolls as informants !!

Angelton's standing orders to the numerous InterPen Groups around the eastern U.S. were:

(1) No Tea/Coffee plantations as base camps [a-la-"Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Helvetia" in Guatemala. [The Bay of Pigs Brigade 2506 utilized Roberto Alejos coffee plantation near Retalhuleu on the Pacific coast as their first base camp, and then were moved higher into the mountains to "Base Trax"];

(2) All camps must be rudimentary, ease in abandonment, extremely harsh, and designed to train infiltrators to be able to live off of the land, not the local peasants!! [Most of whom had already been relocated away from the mountains and into holding newly constructed villages - thus denying the inserted Guerrillas "...the fish that swim in the sea and supply sustenance to same"!! Survivors of Brigade 2506 training with us were unanimous in declaring that had they received "our" type of very harsh training in Guatemala, more would have escaped with them;

(3) Harsh Everglades/Keys camps would weed out the phonies, weak-willed, and informants post-haste, and moreover, would convince ALL of the opposition [both U.S. & Fidel] that we were just a bunch of vagrants and vagabonds living in "Hobo-Jungles" - and thereby causing a lessening of surveillance activities against us, and more importantly: prevented them from any serious tracking our movements the "Bush"; and,

(4) All of the above would complete the pre-infiltration "Isolation" requirements, and moreover, later movement to an airstrip [for airborne insertion] or the Everglades shorelines [for Maritime insertions] would go undetected due to the impossibility of tracking our cross-country marches through the "Wilds"!!

Slack's name came into focus just after I was queried by an amateur "JFK" sleuth, who showed me the "Tramp" [Hobo] photographs, and asked me if I recognized any of them. As I told Noel Twyman in his book, I NEVER identify people under any circumstances, especially where the evidence consists solely of poor quality photographs. But if you ask me correctly: "....Does this person "resemble" anyone who might have crossed your path??" -- then, at that moment I might respond that the person in question might "remind me" of a particular movie star, public figure, etc.!!

In Ted's case, I blundered in stating that the singular person who might possibly have similar "facial characteristics", would be Ted; but I quickly insisted that this was absolutely NOT Ted. Typically, and in the Weberman fantasy fashion, this xxxx-head spread the word that one of the "Tramps" was an infamous Bircher who had been a long-time financier of the "No Name Key Bunch" !! I have since continued to suffer from a "World-full-of-Assholes" !!

John Blumer was a petty "Gauleiter" with the N.S.R.P. [National State Rights Party].

Another bunch of xxxxhead informants and Agent Provocateurs. Blumer approached us during 1962 with offers of hiring some of our instructors to train their gut little NAZIs. We weren't interested in any of their "Minutemen" style racist schemes.

Saul Sage was a buddy of the other CIA contract "assassin-of-interest" Larry LaBorde. They had worked in Mexico during the 1950s for short periods [under Dept. of Agriculture cover] on specifically targeted subjects. Saul is the same person that Macdonald ["Appointment in Dallas"] ran into post-Bay of Pigs at the CIA's old "T-Buildings" on the DC Mall. [Langley HQ didn't open until January 1962]

Saul is the person erroneously identified as LHO when photographed leaving both the Soviet and Cuban Embassies [and the separate Cuban Consulate residence where I stayed after leaving Cuba, and was assisted by Sylvia Duran in my Sandinista activities.] in Mexico City.

He was born Mario Tauler Sague near Leipzig during the 1920s, and was recruited by Bill Harvey in Berlin after years of work with the "Gehlen Organization". Our "Little Joe" Garman called him "Sal Saggy". He assisted the "Raul" in the MLK, Jr. assassination during the "bug-out" to Montreal, Quebec; where Saul had helped organize the right-wing "R'assemblent National" terrorist group. One of our ex-French Foreign Legionnaire instructors was wounded during a shoot-out involving said group.

Mario Tauler Sague's name appeared on the list of assassins and assassination attempts given to Senator McGovern by Fidel. Mario/Saul figured prominently in the repeated hit attempts generated by Sylvia Odio's parents before they were imprisoned. Incidentally, Sylvia's parents invented "Operation Pedro Pan" -- which was to serve as a quasi hostage brokering of the children of hesitant insurgents pre & post Bay of Pigs.

Some misguided clowns still believe that Tauler was arrested and imprisoned at Guanajay, 42 miles west of Havana -- an ex-Batista's prime estate. However, Guanajay is a women's prison, and had Mr. Tauler been caught, he would have been summarily executed at the "Paredon" toot-sweet !!

Everybody--

In his recent post #32 on the thread MC Man Not A Mystery, Tim Gratz says that Gerry Hemming said somewhere on this Forum that Mario Tauler Sague was Slavic in "nationality." Since there's sometimes a difference between a person's nationality and his or her ancestry, I wonder which term Tim and/or Gerry meant? I've noticed that people often say "nationality" when they really ought to say "ancestry" or perhaps "ethnicity." So, was Mario Tauler Sague Germanic, Spanish or Dutch (etc) in ancestry but born in a Slavic country (like Poland or Czechoslovakia (etc)--- unlikely since Hemming says above that Sague was born near Leipzig which is well within the former East German border--- or is/was Sague Slavic in ancestry but born in Germany, near Leipzig? I don't think so because neither "Mario" nor "Tauler" nor "Sague" is a Slavic name. (Try googling these three names, separately.)

Both Dresden, Germany and Berlin are significantly closer to the whole Polish border than Leipzig Germany is, so if Sague was born in Poland, why would Hemming say that he was born near Leipzig rather than near Berlin or Dresden? By the same token, Dresden is closer to the whole (former) Czechoslovak (now Czech Republic) border than Leipzig is, so if Sague was born in Czechoslovakia, why would he say that he was born near Leipzig rather than near Dresden?

Having lived in the Czech Republic for several years, I can say that the M.C. Mystery Man (Mario Tauler Sague) doesn't even look particularly Slavic, in my humble opinion.

By the way, according to http://www.ellisisland.org a Mario Sague, who was born in Cuba and whose last residence before immigrating to the U.S. was Guanajay, departed Havana by ship and arrived at Ellis Island June 17, 1911 at 17 years of age.... (No wonder he wanted to move to the U.S. He was probably worn out from living in that darned "women's prison" called Guanajay.) LOL

Hmm... I wonder if he was Mario Tauler's father, his uncle, or just another coincidence for Ron Ecker to ponder?
