HSCA Report, Volume X Current Section: B. AMLASH Operation

Re autumn of 1963: "Langosch/Harold Swenson recalled: 'The AMLASH operation prior to the assassination of President Kennedy was characterized by the Special Affairs Staff, Desmond FitzGerald and other senior officers as an assassination operation initiated and sponsored by the CIA.' Langosch recollected further that it was the highly possible that the Cuban Intelligence Services were aware of AMLASH and his association with the CIA and that the information upon which he based his conclusion that the AMLASH operation was insecure was available to senior level CIA officials, including Desmond FitzGerald. In response to Langosch's sworn statements, the committee received the affidavit of Kent L. Pollock (CIA pseudonym), a former CIA employee. Pollock 'served as executive officer for Desmond FitzGerald during the entire period in which he was chief of the Special Affairs Staff...and discussed with him the AMLASH operation as it progressed.' Pollock specifically contested the assertions of Langosch, stating, 'To the best of my knowledge, Mr. FitzGerald considered the AMLASH operation to be a political action activity with the objection of organizing a group under AMLASH-1 to overthrow Castro and the Castro regime by means of a coup d'etat. I heard Mr. FitzGerald discuss the AMLASH operation frequently, and never heard him characterize it as an assassination operation. Mr. FitzGerald stated within my hearing on several occasions his awareness that coup d'etat often involves loss of life.'" See the affidavit itself at 1993.07.02.17:36:56:120310 - page 3.
