and that mfer first shows up in Operation 40 which was basically a group of assassins.

Just check out who Pelosi just named co-chair of the Office of Congressional Ethics.

Operation 40 was a Central Intelligence Agency-sponsored undercover operation in the early 1960s, which was active in the Caribbean (including Cuba), Central America, and Mexico. Created by US President Dwight D. Eisenhower in March 1960 after the 1959 Cuban Revolution and presided by vice-president Richard Nixon, it included people such as Frank Sturgis (who would later become one of the Watergate burglars), Felix Rodriguez (a CIA officer who later hunted down Che Guevara), Luis Posada Carriles (now held in the US under illegal immigration charges, he is demanded by Venezuela for his key role in the execution of the 1976 Cubana Flight 455 bombing), Orlando Bosch (founder of the CORU counter-revolutionary organization, which organized Chilean former minister Orlando Letelier's murder in 1976), Rafael 'Chi Chi' Quintero, Virgilio Paz Romero, Pedro Luis Diaz Lanz, Bernard Barker, Porter Goss, and Barry Seal. Members took part in the April 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion directed against Fidel Castro's regime. Operation 40 had 86 employees in 1961, of which 37 were trained as case officers.
