Bedico Creek: Lights, Action, Camera…

Chapters 29 and 30

Anti-Castro Training Camp
Lee Oswald
David Ferrie
David Atle Phillips
Tracy Barnes
Guy Bannister

Robert Tanenbaum an investigator for the HSCA saw it. Colonel William Bishop told Dick Russell he saw it. This is a film showing troops with mortars and machine guns. Soldiers leaped out of bulky military trucks. But the real prize was footage of David Atlee Phillips in street clothes, carrying a .45mm handgun. Tracy Barnes of the CIA was at the camp. So was Guy Bannister, Oswald in military fatigues. And David Ferrie. The mentioned ordering Italian Mannlicher-Carcano 7.65 rifles and Motorola transmitters. Later Patch remembers the name of the big guy, Hemming.

This is also detailed in a book by Robert Morrow and the implications are astounding.

Patch is paid $10,000 to film under fire the Bedico Creek Training camp

Back in the hotel Pilatus knocks on the door. “It’s urgent!” Pilatus is saying Patch and Shari need to jettison their contacts. They need to disappear. “Oswald doesn’t get it…. And they think they can supersede the Constitution.” Pilatus leaves and Patch grabs his .38. The reason Nagell is warning Patch is to stress Nagell knowledge of the plot and the dnager that exists before what has been called ‘the Big Event.’

At the PO box the next morning a message is received in the manilla envelope. They are to fly to Chicago tomorrow morning. Once in Chicago they will check for weapons in the apartment of a man named Thomas Arthur Valle, who happened to be the Japan at the same time as Lee Oswald. They are to contact Richard Caine and determine what he knows about Oswald and Valle.

BlackOp Radio: The Chicago Plot

At the PO box the next morning a message is received in the manilla envelope. They are to fly to Chicago tomorrow morning. Once in Chicago they will check for weapons in the apartment of a man named Thomas Arthur Valle, who happened to be the Japan at the same time as Lee Oswald. They are to contact Richard Caine and determine what he knows about Oswald and Valle.

Chicago 1963

Thomas Arthur Valle

Valle

“Yes, and of course the first intended scapegoat was Thomas Arthur Valle in relation to the plot in Chicago. And Valle escapes that, thanks to Oswald himself, as well as some whistleblowers in Chicago, especially Abraham Bolden within the Secret Service. But had the plot worked in Chicago, we probably would have never heard of Lee Harvey Oswald.”

                                                                  -James Douglas on Black Op Radio, Jan 8th, 2009

Patch first goes to Valle’s apartment where he find a cache of weapons and he learns that Cubans are up somehow in Chicago, too and living with Valle. The Cubans arrive and Patch leaves quickly. He next meets the volatile Valle at TTP Lithsplat, located near a turn in the road. Just as Desley Plaza in Dallas.

The Patsy

Meanwhile, two other agents had been following up a highly suspicious yet bum lead. The man’s name was Thomas Arthur Vallee, a 30-year-old ex-Marine classified extreme paranoid schizophrenic by military doctors. Vallee worked as an apprentice at IPP Litho-plate at 625 West Jackson. As the patsy, he was perfect—as perfect for the Chicago assassination plot as Lee Harvey Oswald was for the Dallas assassination plot. Vallee was born and raised in Chicago. Like Oswald, he joined the Marines in the mid-50s during the Korean War period. Like Oswald Vallee was assigned to a U-2 base in Japan; Oswald at Atsugi, Vallee at Camp Otsu. The cover reference for the U-2 project at these bases was Joint Technical Advisory Group (JTAG). Since the CIA exerted a strong presence at these two bases, they were prime recruitment stations. Both Vallee and Oswald appear to have been recruited by the CIA for “black missions” or otherwise unsavory, personally discrediting assignments. In Oswald’s case, at the height of the Cold War, he was instructed and helped to defect to Russia. With him he carried top secret radar codes. Oswald’s mission, probably unbeknownst to him, may have been to reveal this disinformation for some complex CIA intelligence stratagem. Warren commission testimony documents that all these radar codes had to be revised because of all the Oswald’s defection. Vallee was recruited about the same time to train members of a fiercely anti-Castro guerrilla group. Objective: the assassination of Fidel Castro. Training locale: in and around Levittown, Long Island.
