There was a figure, apparently in Dallas on the 22nd, possibly Mertz posing as Jean Souetre,* definitely deported by American authorities in the immediate aftermath of the assassination.

There is reason to question if Souetre was either QJ/WIN or WI/ROGUE. QJ/WIN did not merely refer to an individual from Luxembourg who was under written contract to the Agency (annual salary: $7,200.00USD plus additional expenses). The agent in charge of ZR/RIFLE, William King Harvey was for a time responsible for both the Cuban operation and the development of Executive Action capability. These were two separate compartments which Harvey managed and strictly controlled.

In 1967, in response to DCI Helms' official request** calling for an internal investigation of ZR/RIFLE, the Inspectors General reported,

"After Harvey took over the Castro Operation, he ran it as one aspect of ZR/RIFLE; however, he personally handled the Castro operation and did not use any of the assets being developed in ZR/RIFLE. He says that he soon came to think of the Castro operation and ZR/RIFLE as being synonymous. The over-all Executive Action came to be treated in his mind as being synonymous with QJ/WIN, the agent working on the over-all program. He says that when he wrote of ZRRIFLE/QJWIN, the reference was to Executive Action Capability; when he used the cryptonym ZRRIFLE alone, he was referring to Castro." [Emphasis added.] Flawed Patriot, Rustin

*Professor Peter Dale Scott has stated his conclusion that the figure in question was Jean Souetre.

**A self-serving benefit of initiating an inquiry into a program as controversial as ZR/RIFLE is the implication that the executive making the request had no detailed knowledge relevant to the investigation. That's a written record which serves as plausible denial.


From Phil Dragoo:

A CIA document that was declassified in 1977 reports that a French assassin who belonged to the violent, anti-Kennedy French terrorist organization known as the OAS was in Dallas on the day of the shooting (1:202-209; 19:414-419; 25:95-126). The hitman's name, according to the document, was Jean Souetre. The document mentions that Souetre had also gone by the name of Michel Mertz. It now seems likely that the man was really Michel Mertz using Souetre's name (25:95-172, 267-289). Mertz was a ruthless member of the French Mafia, which had a strong motive to kill Kennedy (25:141-172, 267-289). Mertz and Souetre were enemies. Souetre himself said it was possible that the man described in the document was Mertz using his, Souetre's, name. Within 48 hours of the assassination, the man was picked up in Texas by U.S. authorities and immediately expelled. Interestingly, evidence has surfaced that the FBI was looking for Souetre, or for someone using his name, BEFORE the assassination (25:130-133). We also know that the KGB believed it found evidence that Mertz played a role in the assassination and that he was hired by the French (Corsican/Marseille) Mafia (see below).

The CIA document mentions that Souetre received mail from a dentist named Alderson. The FBI located this individual, Dr. Lawrence Alderson, who had met Souetre while stationed in France as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Dr. Alderson told former Rockefeller Foundation scholar Henry Hurt that the FBI agents who interviewed him informed him that the FBI felt Souetre "had either killed JFK or knew who had done it" (19:418). When he spoke with Hurt, Dr. Alderson produced a snapshot of Souetre that he took when he was stationed in France. To make a long story short, the FBI dropped the ball in the investigation of Souetre and essentially swept the whole thing under the rug.

Why would the Mafia have wanted JFK dead? Quite simply, because the Kennedy administration was threatening the very existence of organized crime in America, and the French Mafia could very well have feared that Kennedy was going to disrupt or halt its lucrative heroin enterprise. Robert Kennedy was waging an unprecedented war on the Mafia, a war that targeted not just Mafia operations but also Mafia leaders themselves.

Mr. Angleton-Harvey, Larry Hancock advised in a jfklancer post that the book The Heroin Trail would be illuminating regarding these two figures.

Souetre met with CIA officer E. Howard Hunt in April of 1963, and later that spring with anti-Castro Cubans (some of whom knew Oswald) and other members of the World Anti-Communist League operating in the Caribbean and the southern United States. Id. A friend of Souetre's in Dallas, Dr. Lawrence Alderson, stated that the FBI contacted him soon after the assassination trying to locate Souetre for questioning. He states that the Bureau knew Souetre was in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and that he may have been flown out of the country that afternoon in a "government" plane. Id. at 560-61. CIA officer Richard Helms, who testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about the executive action foreign assassination program (otherwise known as "ZR/Rifle"), indicated that the CIA used highly trained European assassins on certain missions. See Interim Report on Alleged Assassination Plots Involving Foreign Leaders, infra note 81, at 37-67 (especially regarding the assassin known as "QJ/WIN"). Le Cavelier reported to Fensterwald that many former OAS mercenaries were recruited by the CIA and the United States Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) after 1962. Russell, supra note 64, at 563. Souetre, currently living in France, denies any involvement in the Kennedy assassination. Id. His complete CIA and FBI files have not yet been released. Id. at 560.
 
In the late 1950s, Michael Mertz, a former French intelligence agent, was involved in a narcotics smuggling operation between France, the United States, and Canada. In 1961, Mertz was assigned to infiltrate the OAS by the French SDECE. Id. at 559-60 (citing Newsday Staff, The Heroin Trail, (1974)). Souetre also had ties to Corsican Mafia drug operations, according to undercover narcotics agents in Marseilles. Id. at 563. Souetre suggests that Mertz was the man in Dallas on the day of the assassination, and that Mertz used Souetre's name as an alias, not vice versa. Id. Michael Roux, currently a New York based international businessman, claims to have had nothing whatsoever to do with Souetre or Mertz, or the assassination. While he admits being in Dallas visiting friends on the day of the assassination, information obtained by Dick Russell suggests that he was cleared by an FBI investigation in 1964. Id. at 560.

I know that in my printout of Saint John Hunt's Bond of Secrecy the late elder Hunt refers to Souetre as the French gunman on the grassy knoll.

And as you know I characterize the joint effort of the Hunts as a “deathbed deflection.”

One is struck, however, by the Lansky heroin network, Ruby's connection to Lansky and to alleged Lansky courier Braden, and the access to the Golden Triangle which the Vietnam War allowed.

One might ask, why are we still in Afghanistan, why is the border with Mexico still permeable.

Or why the tomato salesman bore such animosity towards the brothers Kennedy.
