Also see Lamar Waldron, Ultimate Sacrifice (2005), pp. 495-496: "QJWIN was run out of the CIA's Luxembourg station, and was paid from the CIA's Paris station, and there are indications that they - and McCone - were not fully briefed about QJWIN's assassin-recruitment activities...(in May 1978) Phillips de Vojoli, who headed French intelligence in the US in 1963..,'talked generally about plots against Castro and an offer by French Intelligence to the CIA to carry out the Castro assassination for them.'" This is based on notes from Senate investigator James P. Kelly, on file at the Assassination Archives Research Center. Kelly had worked for RFK in the late 50s. De Vosjoli was also referred to in the late 70s as TOPAZ.
