Re: The last photo of Maurice Bishop

Graves registration personnel at Calivigny.

I spoke with someone in a Urgent Fury veterans forum who was part of the graves registration team.  He gave me the documents and the photos.  He said that, while bodies were recovered, they couldn't be identified.

Re: The last photo of Maurice Bishop

The Castro and the Cubans supported Bishop and Castro made no secret of the fact that he didn't care for Coard.

Coard and the others were afraid that hundreds of Cubans on island were about to intervene in favor of Bishop just like they did when a similar crack in leadership occurred in Angola.  They decided to take out Bishop before the Cubans could save him.

That's Coard's position except for the part about taking out Bishop.  He doesn't know how that happened.  He never found out in prison with the others of the Grenada 17.  It is a total mystery.

25 years in jail and none of the comrades confides in each other. Remarkable, such devotion to omerta.

You should be worried about recovering his body and giving him a proper funeral.

Part of the report says the remains were turned over to a Grenadian funeral home.  This one, as a matter of fact...

Re: The last photo of Maurice Bishop

The document above was a contemporaneous internal military memo that was given to me by a member of the graves registration team.  It mentions the name a legitimate funeral home in Grenada.  I believe it is legitimate since there is no reason to doubt it.

You, on the other hand, will assume that it is a clever CIA forgery handed off to me by an operative in an Urgent Fury website as part of the campaign of misinformation about which not one in ten million Americans care a whit about. 

And that is the impasse where will will stay.
