Unfortunately, there are no pictures of Eugene Dinkin, who was an unfortunate victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. At left is a photo of William K. Harvey, the mad dog alcoholic assassin who created an executive action project to eliminate Fidel Castro, a project that diverted to JFK after Harvey was demoted and most of his friends in the agency were about to be torn into a thousand pieces and cast to the wind.
Dinkin was an army code operator stationed in Mertz, France, when he intercepted a message between a CIA-operative in Italy (perhaps Harvey) who had contacted French mafia in Marseilles to recruit their top assassin (who had the CIA code name QJ/Win ) for a plot against President Kennedy. Apparently this plot already had the support of some Pentagon brass and a right-wing group in Texas (Murchinson and the Hunt brothers, no doubt). Apparently, Johnny Roselli was already on board but they needed more shooters. Although the op was first planned for Chicago, and then Tampa, it was the Dallas plot that Dinkin uncovered and he made the mistake of telling one of his superiors about the message, as well as his plans to alert the world in order to prevent the President from being murdered.
Pretty soon, word came down that Dinkin was about to be declared mentally ill, so he went AWOL and escaped into Switzerland, where he attempted to alert the press at a United Nations function. He also sent a letter to Robert Kennedy outlining the plot. Keep in mind, this all happened just days before the assassination, and Dinkin was already telling people the exact date and place the assassination was due to happen.
Dinkin was soon removed to Walter Reed Army Hospital and worked on for weeks with drugs and electroshock therapy, and by the time he got out, his story has changed considerably. Instead of intercepting a coded message, now he’d predicted the assassination by reading coded messages in the Stars and Stripes.

interesting comments. most don’t know about these 2 guys. i know that e.c.t. was used in the past to try to force people to change their thoughts in unethical ways. on the other hand, i used to stand by with a resuscitator in case people quit breathing during it and can attest, that, at least at the hospital i worked for , it wasn’t used for about a 20 year period but came back in the 90’s on a very limited basis only for intractable cases of depression. i never saw a case where the patient was reluctant or refused and if i did, i would have interfered and made sure he or she was free to refuse. a couple even insisted it was the only thing that worked and pressured their dr.s into trying it. it seems to work some of the time, but not very reliably. nowadays, patients are sedated heavily before the procedure so they don’t even remember the shock. it’s still disconcerting to see people having a convulsion,even with the teeth protected and i was always sensitive to the issue of freedom from coercion. i’ve never witnessed anyone who got ect involuntarily and would have stood up for their rights as i have when staff tried to suction patients against their will (illegal now) . it’s such an unreliable procedure that i think it’s hardly ever used anymore .
