    MATINAS: It was big, I believe the whole of US Government was committed to the action of bringing down Fidel Castro, it took tremendous resources from this country and Cuba. It starts from the bottom, you have to take this man and .....train times..... you have legislation, you have to have policeofficers, you have to have judges, you have to have everyone involved in this 5th commitment, in order to assure the safety of the operational, itself.



    INTERVIEWER: Mr. Barker, what was your job in this anti-Castro event?



    SEQ. 15: BARKER: Int this past phase we are covering........



    BARKER: In this past phase we are covering now, which is post-Bay of rigs. Previous to this time I had been working in the political sector and then put to work mainly in counter intelligence and security, ??? Cubans that case from cuba obtaining intelligence, and also checking our own security of the para-military crews.



    INTERVIEWER: You operated mainly at sea, what was your job?



    MATINAS: My job was to diversify, sometimes tracing down, sometimes infiltrating..........stations, training commandos.



    REPORTER: Matinas said CIA could do whatever it wanted to in secret war, US customs, navy state police even judges and newspapers, closed their eyes to illegal operations in campaign against Castro. With the US on our side he said it didn't seem possible we could lose.
