In April of 1962, the CIA’s operation to murder Cuba’s Fidel Castro using elements of what they described as “The Gambling Syndicate”(read: Organized Crime) lay dormant. Until the Agency’s portly SuperSpy Bill Harvey took over.
Running the operation under the umbrella of his legendary ZR/RIFLE Program, Harvey once again teamed with John Roselli and~like the first two phases~ a farce worthy of a Marx Brothers film ensued, until finally a personal favor to an insecure little gangster brought the whole thing crashing down.

Even as early as the afternoon of 11/22/63, Bobby Kennedy and then-CIA Director John McCone privately harbored concerns that these plots had backfired on John Kennedy in Dallas, Texas.
This week, You and I will embark on a detailed analysis of these Covert Assassination Plots. Because, as they say, The Devil Is In The Details.
