Veciana resigns from Alpha 66.

Summary of Veciana's Alpha 66 years.
How could Veciana at any time, particularly during the difficult times raising funds and keeping the group together or when they went on missions, not mention this Bishop person who he says was directing their operations? Not once? Or mention this Bishop figure to the CIA people he went to for funds?

As you point out, if Bishop told him he couldn't provide funds because he needed to have "plausible deniability" then why then go to the very CIA (ostensibly) for fund when they needed to maintain this distance? And nowhere in his book do I recall him going to Bishop and asking for funds. Either directly or indirectly.

Menoyo, the military commander of Alpha 66, is organizing/directing raids into Cuba and Veciana doesn't mention this Bishop person who is, according to Veciana, really directing things? So who was running these attacks? Menoyo or Bishop?

You document quite substantively this long series of falsehoods and improbabilities that Veciana told. Messrs. Kelly and Morley believe some, for me, very questionable things but they must have some limit to what they will embrace?

Sure doesn't make sense to me.

And not one person who knew Veciana intimately such as Menoyo, Nazario or Lopez Fresquet ever mentioned Bishop or any American who was working with Veciana. When asked about Bishop and Veciana's claims of being CIA connected, Lopez Fresquet told the HSCA investigators that it was the first he had heard of it (when he read Anderson's column) and he would have to let Veciana know that he had fooled him since Veciana always claimed it as a badge of honor that they didn't get CIA help.

In the preface to his book, Veciana writes this: "The man I knew as Maurice Bishop supplied the training. He supplied the money. He supplied the weapons."

But elsewhere in the book, in several places, he says Bishop NEVER provided any money to Alpha 66 because he, Bishop, needed to maintain "plausible deniability." Moreover, Veciana discusses in some detail his desperate effort to obtain funding - traveling around the US and meeting with the exile community, holding boxing matches and other events to raise funds, et cetera. And apparently directing operations and providing weapons wouldn't threaten this deniability.

His entire account of this Bishop person is riddled with inconsistencies and contradictions.

Good original work Tracy. Thanks.

Thanks for reading Steve.
All of this, as you know, is backdrop or a sort of "white noise" to the key issue about Veciana claiming to see Bishop meeting with Oswald in that Dallas office building about two months before the assassination. But it seems obvious (to us) that if all of these other claims - including most important the very existence of this Bishop figure - have no basis then the "Bishop-was-with-Oswald" claim is equally dubious.
