Definition:
Rocky Farnsworth. He used a variety of pseudonyms and aliases. This alias was tied to his pseudonym "Eustace Keator" and another of his aliases, "Jack Peters".
Category:
alias
Status:
Probable
Discussion:
Farnsworth was a deeply connected officer. Is it possible that he spied on Bradley Ayers and others under the guise of "Major Edward Roderick" in 1963, or is that mere coincidence.

Pre-Bay of Pigs: Time Magazine reports that "Roderick" was one of the main officers working on the Guatemala operation at the three camps and airstrip in owned by coffee mogul Roberto Alejos- "Charlie" was in charge, assisted by "Clarence" (probably Smeryage, who I believe was Tom Clines), "Adams" and "Jimmy".

104-10069-10111: LAUREANO BATISTA

May 61 Laureano Batista/AMPALM-2 of the Christian Democratic Movement/AMPALM had a weapons and explosives net from Miami to Cuba. Batista said he could no longer reach his contacts Colonel Roderick or Jack Peters. He said he had met Peters and had never actually met Colonel Roderick. In fact, these two men were the same person. Batista's two contact persons in the CIA were Peters and "Mr. Frank" - probably Colonel Frank Egan. Batista's contact with them was broken after the Bay of Pigs. Frank only told Batista "we have to lay low for awhile."

104-10109-10355: MEMORANDUM: CAPTAIN BRADLEY EARL AYERS AND MAJOR EDWARD THOMAS RODERICK

May 6, 1963: Ayers #078210 and Major Edward Thomas Roderick ASN 1686654 have been fluttered, have had top secret clearances for many years, loaned to CIA on a TDY basis for use in a training program and operational support at JMWAVE. How could OS find no indices on either officer? Was there any relationship between "Colonel Roderick" and Major Roderick?
