So Cord was (involved). And Lyndon Johnson was in agreement, all he had to do was nod and say yes, let’s get rid of this guy, and he can become president. That was his end. He was not involved in the day-to-day planning that my father said he attended sat the safe houses in Miami, Florida.
Bill Harvey was a CIA boss, and he was head of the Rome office, and he brought in – now it’s been uncovered that he sent messages to his superiors suggesting the use of Corsicans for hit men rather than American mafiosi, which would be much easier to trace in a trail leading back to the CIA. So he suggested the use of Corsicans. And of course the Corsican that my father told me, his name was “Sarkay,” and he didn’t know anything more about that gentleman. But that’s the name that he recalled from some of those meetings. Antono Veciana was an anti-Castro in Alpha 66, one of the most dangerous, bloodiest anti-Castro ex-Cuban military brigade 2506. This all ties in and goes back to the Bay of Pigs, for one thing. And then in later years, some of these same characters surfaced in Watergate.
And the interesting thing about that is, that in Watergate, I think it was either Erlichman or Haldeman that Nixon sent over to Helms to threaten Helms with exposure of “The Bay of Pigs thing.” And Helms reacted by screaming, “This Watergate thing has nothing to do with the Bay of Pigs thing!” And, I think it’s Haldeman who said in his book that “the Bay of Pigs thing” was code for the JFK assassination.
That’s correct, you hit it on the head. Yep, that is absolutely correct. And Nixon, of course, knew my father, and knew my father as a very serious and potentially dangerous person. Under Eisenhower, Nixon had been White House liason to this very, very secret and illegal crew under the name Operation 40, I believe. It was a ring of assassins that were on call to assassinate any foreign leaders, dignitaries, embassy employees, or anybody else that was unfriendly to the United States. And Nixon knew about that.
Wow. And Nixon was of course also part of the Bay of Pigs operation, the CIA’s secret invasion of Cuba that was planned under Eisenhower, launched under Kennedy, but then Kennedy refused to send in the Marines and the bombers, and everyone (in the CIA) hated him after that.
We’ll be back in a moment. This is Kevin Barrett, talking with Saint John Hunt.
