Clandestine CIA Operations

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - November 2, 2013
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Robert Plumlee

John B. Wells was joined by former CIA contract pilot Robert "Tosh" Plumlee, who talked about his involvement in clandestine Agency flights and activities. Plumlee detailed how he got his start in specialized operations as a new Army recruit at Fort Bliss, Texas in 1954, noting that he received additional training in Nags Head, North Carolina. Plumlee said he worked as an aircraft mechanic after his stint in the military, later learned to fly on the GI Bill, and began transporting weapons into Pre-Castro Cuba on planes that belonged to CIA cutout companies. The undercover gun-running operations, which were run out of the Pentagon with CIA logistical support, not only supplied both sides of the Cuban Revolution (Castro and Batista) but also escalated the conflict there, he explained.

Plumlee claimed to have been engaged in other secret operations throughout the sixties. After a brief retirement to 'The Farm' he was reactivated as an undercover operative for the federal government during the Drug War. According to Plumlee, guns were transported into South America to support insurgents there and drugs brought back to finance the operation. "From '78 to '83 I flew tons of cocaine into this country and hundreds of guns into Central America through Mexico," he revealed. Plumlee spoke about murder of Enrique 'Kiki' Camarena by Caro Quintero and how it was related to the illegal gun-running operations sanctioned by the U.S. government. "The whole thing was arms not dope. Dope was a diversion," he said.
