But we didn't turn back; the striper run is short. My father, Bing, has a collection of these die-hards, men who spent their formative years chasing other men in black pajamas. Rudy is a former C.I.A. special operations officer who speared 400-pound fish in the 1950's, killed a great white shark in the 1970's, and whose hand was chopped up and crippled by a seven-foot moray eel off Key West, Fla."
John Prados, Safe for Democracy, The Secret Wars of the CIA (Ivan Dee, Chicago, 2006)
Enders is described as a "paramilitary specialist and boatman; Enders made his mark as a paramilitary officer with the Miami base on Cuban operations; later in the Vietnam war he rose to a senior field officer and by the 1980's headed CIA's Special Activities Division, where he played a role in the mining of Nicaraguan ports during the contra war." (p. xx); "...the CIA did not even have a maritime unit (in 1960). Once the (Bay of Pigs) project began, boat operations were improvised...Typically CIA case officers like Rudy Enders arranged supplies to haul, or coordinated the Miami end of operations to exfiltrate anti-Castro people or insert agents. (p. 230); "the JMWAVE people reflected the trainees: Shackley's assistant Thomas Clines and CIA men like Rudy Enders, George French, Robert Wall, Edwin Wilson and Harold Chipman were all paramilitary officers. French, a demolitions expert, loved to blow things up. Rip Robertson and Grayston Lynch were back, leading units comprising many teams of Cubans. A CIA contract officer records that, with the word 'paramilitary' declared verboten after the Bay of Pigs, they were now part of the Special Operations Division. The Miami operating base, set up under the station's aegis, lagged on maritime capability throughout MONGOOSE, in spite of the efforts of Gordon Campbell and Rudy Enders. Training the commandos proved easier than finding boats to move them. Motorboats sailing from Miami and throughout the Keys made up the core. The station's maritime branch has been described as 'huge', but the Special Operations Division remained the largest element."
As of 6/30/62, Philip D. Glavasco was "contract personnel", like Noemayr/Crozier, Cadick/Robertson, and Sloman/Sforza.
John Simkin, "Gordon Campbell" -https://spartacus-educational.com/JFKcampbellG.htm
Re September 1962: John Simkin, historian, writes that Gordon Campbell was born on July 5, 1905. "He was a yachtsman and Army colonel who served as a contract agent helping the agency ferry anti-Castro guerrillas across the straits of Florida, according to Rudy Enders, a retired CIA officer, and two other people who knew him... "I was right there when he died," said (Rudy) Enders in a telephone interview. "He was getting a drink at the drinking fountain in Zenith Technical Services (the cover name for the CIA's offices) in Miami. He stood up and started shaking and he collapsed and we tried to revive him. We gave him mouth to mouth to resuscitation and it just didn't work. It was a real bad heart attack." Campbell's death certificate, which identified him as a "maritime adviser," states he passed away on Sept. 19, 1962.
6/5/63 cable from Maritime to Director: (Marvin A.) Laurenkus was with MARITIME. Phone x 441, writing one of the key TILT memos (WAVE 9343) about TODHUNTER/Marshall Carter and DAINOLD/Desmond FitzGerald.
Alan Barton: "Twenty-one years marine engineer. Mechanical engineering background. Extensive travel through Far East, Middle East, Europe, Central America. Marine engineering independent research. Aircraft factory engineer- India." Is that a true biography or is it cover?
June 1963: "Alan Barton aka Marvin A. Laurenkus" was on Pawley's yacht with Donald F. Mazutis aka Mike Kelley (aka Mickey Kappes).
6/29/63 dispatch from Chief of Station, JMWAVE to Chief, SAS: Irving Cadick and Philip Glavasco were unable to avoid the cameras and were photographed while in action loading cargo on the V-20 vessel. Note that Stanley Zamka/David Morales is identified as "C/PM". See 104-10312-10288: Back on 6/8/63 this memo stated "load pax Rudy in second V-20"
Brad Ayers, The Zenith Secret (Vox Pop, 2006)
Late 1963: (Brad Ayers indicates Rudy Enders may have been the assistant to Cal Hicks in late 1963)... "(at p. 23): The (training) class was presented quite informally, in Spanish, by Rip (Robertson)'s personal assistant, a Cuban named Felix (Rodriguez?)...(at p. 25): Cal (was the) chief of training, and (had) his assistant, Rudy (Enders?)...I knew Dave Morales would object like hell to the new prominence and control of the training branch in the selection and development of the teams." Was the director of training Calvin Hicks aka "Cal Hitch"? https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=23130&search=cal_AND+cia#relPageId=2&tab=page
January 1968: When AMHINT-56 was terminated this month, one of the personnel he was exposed to was "Philip Glavasco" also known as "Rudy".
Interview with Doug Valentine: "The CIA: 70 Years of Organized Crime" - https://www.larsschall.com/2017/09/19/the-cia-70-years-of-organized-crime/
From Lars Schall's interview with Doug Valentine: "Donald Gregg...and Rudy Enders (both of whom I interviewed for my book The Phoenix Program), exported Phoenix to El Salvador and Central America in 1980, at the same time the CIA and military were joining forces to create Delta Force and the Joint Special Operations Command to combat 'terrorism' worldwide using the Phoenix model." Also see https://www.counterpunch.org/2001/11/08/the-turning-point/ - Valentine writes: he appointed OSS veteran William Casey as Director of Central Intelligence. Casey immediately reconstituted the SOD under Rudy Enders, wrapped anti-terrorism in a veil of black and gray propaganda, and began mounting terror operations worldwide through a hip pocket operation managed by a secret team of counter-terror experts. Many old Phoenix veterans staffed several key positions in the Reagan, Bush and Casey regime. SOD chief Rudy Enders had managed the CIA’s counter-terror teams in Vietnam’s III Corps in 1965-1966, and 1970-1972.

In 1981...Enders assigned Rodriguez to El Salvador specifically to implement an updated version of the Pink Plan against the political leadership of the insurgency. After receiving approval from Bush, through Greg, the strategy was applied uniformly throughout Central America..(resulting in) the proliferation of death squads and the formation of the world’s largest narco-terrorist group, the Contras, with the able assistance of Panama’s Manuel Noriega, one of the CIA’s most famous assets ever. Veteran field hands from the Phoenix Program were re-hired by the SOD and assigned (around the world)...they carried a field manual developed by the U.S. Army Special Forces for use in the Phoenix Program. Titled 'Psychological Operations In Guerrilla Warfare,' the manual ifically states that 'Guerrilla warfare is essentially a political war,' and that.once the mind had been reached, the manual said, the 'political animal' was defeated, without necessarily receiving bullets."
08/25/2010, Article by Rudy Enders: Titled: With the CIA in Vietnam Part 5: Page 1: "STATION CHECK IN: I checked in at the American Embassy where I met with my old boss, now Station Chief, Ted Shackley. I owed the man. Besides asking for me personally, he bent the rules, allowing my wife and children to remain in Vietnam throughout my tour. To my knowledge, I was the only CIA officer authorized to do this. Others were required to leave their family home in the United States or have them live in Taipei, Hong Kong, or Thailand. Ted was a taskmaster who ruled with an iron fist. Success had to be measured in terms of the number of intelligence reports disseminated, penetration agents recruited, VCI captured or killed, etc. The only exception, which ranked as the number one priority on Regional Officer in Charge fitness reports, was 'Assist in Winning the War.' This was most important, yet how could it be measured? I always felt it ludicrous to measure progress in terms of enemy KIAs, enemy attack numbers, or statistics forwarded in monthly reports.. Enemy capability is what really mattered. Often times an entire province would appear pacified only to witness a total security collapse when the hidden enemy decided to show its fangs. But bean counters in Washington had a voracious appetite for evidence justifying the enormous amount of funds being spent to support the Vietnamese war effort. So reports to headquarters only increased over time. While many viewed Ted Shackley as a cold-hearted tyrant, he had a soft side. Once you gained his confidence, he was loyal almost to a fault. He did this in Miami, and later on in Vietnam, Laos and at CIA Headquarters..." https://www.air-america.org/files/documents/revietnam_5.pdf
