David Morales - curiosities


Recommended Posts

Greg, from what I was told the operation took place just before the missile crisis. Also, it was Joe Kennedy who announced that the exiles wouldn't ever get Cuba back. No ideas on the child, sorry. Remember that those comments came from a family member of a solid suspect in the assassination itself. Also worth remembering that by December of 1963, there was an attempt to kill Vidal, Roy Hargraves and Ed Collins. Collins and Vidal were to die in 1964.

Speculation of course, but beyond the larger issues of JFK's failure to fully support the exile cause and his increasingly softening approach to Castro, an additional motive for Morales, Vidal and possibly others to drive the assassination could have been a personal beef that grew out of this failed op. The December '63 attempts on Vidal, Hargraves and Collins could have been retribution and an attempt to ensure silence on the failed op. Which would add another rationale for the RFK hit in '68 and fits nicely with the Kennedy family's resistence to the Garrison investigation and their public stance supporting the WC findings.

It would also be interesting to know the true circumstances around the Modesett Sr death and what exactly Zamka/Morales and Modesett Jr discussed.

The whole thing sounds like a worthy area of research for anyone so inclined.

Thanks for the info John.

In Noel Twyman's interview of Bob Walton (David Morales' former lawyer), Walton talks about how Morales had a little black plastic card (smaller than a credit card) in his wallet that had a few gold numbers/letters and no insignia on it. He would show it to people to get whatever he wanted - into a restaurant, on an overbooked airplane etc...

Does anyone know what this card was? (My only guess is that it was from when he worked in the Pentagon for the Joint Chiefs of Staff)
