Email from Former member of Mafia to Sharyn Bovat & Mark Silverman's link to CIA and Assasination Attempt on Castro

Mark Silverman knew that I was going to meet with the former "mob guy" and even wrote done the "name" of his friend from Rhode Island .....Raymond Patriarca
CLAIFICATION....Mark Silverman was NOT friends with Raymond Patriarca he only knew of him from his associates.Mark is an honorable man and has NEVER participated in mob activities.

Mark Silverman of Gannett is VERY well respected he won the Ben Bradlee award  (Ben Bradlee did the WATERGATE story...about Nixon) and Mark got a Pulitzer Prize nomination.   Mark KNOWS that I was "railroaded.   He still calls me...  Mark was protecting Haley Barbour until Haley Barbour ****** him. 

In America MOST people think the Bush family is connected to the Mafia... the fact is for generations the Mafia had ties to the CIA.. except former President Jimmy Carter's CIA .   The Reagan people were friendlier to the mob than the Bush family.    I'm NOT saying that any president including Ronald Reagan directly had involvement with the Mafia...It was indirect.  I believe that "W" had eliminated the remaining "wise guy" elements from the CIA. 

Did you notice "how successful" the CIA has been lately? 

Yes President Obama is President and ordered the assassination of Bin Laden.  Still the people that did the intelligence work are the "W" era I give BOTH President Bush and President Obama an "A."

“....testified that Patriarca (Mark Silverman's Friend) had participated in a 1960 attempt by the Central Intelligence Agency to kill Fidel Castro that was never carried out. In 1983,.......” Wiki see below

Patriarca crime family

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Patriarca crime family, also known as the New England crime family or Providence crime family, is an Italian-American organized crime syndicate based in New England, specifically Providence, Rhode Island and Boston, Massachusetts, and is part of the Italian-American Mafia or "La Cosa Nostra". The Patriarca crime family is considered one of the most active mob families outside of New York City.

Early years

The New England-based Mafia family that would later be known as the Patriarca crime family was founded by Gaspare Messina in 1916, and he led the family until his retirement in 1924. Messina was then succeeded by Phil Buccola. Under Buccola the family increased its power and wealth, mostly through loan sharking, gambling, and bootlegging. Buccola remained the boss of the crime family for thirty years before retiring to Sicily in 1954. He was succeeded by Raymond "Il Patrone" Patriarca.

Patriarca era

In 1954 Patriarca made drastic changes in the family, the biggest being moving the family's base of operations to Providence, Rhode Island. He ran his family from the National Cigarette Service Company and Coin-O-Matic Distributors, a vending machine and pinball business on Atwells Avenue in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence. The business was known to family members as "The Office."[1] Patriarca was a strict and ruthless leader. He successfully ran his crime family for decades. He made it clear that other crime families were not permitted to operate in New England, and was also skilled at warding off police and maintaining a low profile and thus received little hindrance from law enforcement. The family ventured into new rackets such as pornography and narcotics, though mob informer Vincent Teresa insisted that Patriarca forbade the family to deal in drugs.

During his reign as boss, Patriarca also formed strong relationships with the New York crime families, who had controlled organized crime in Providence before he moved in. Patriarca's long-time underboss, Enrico Tameleo, was even a member of New York's Bonanno crime family. He also worked with the Genovese crime family frequently. Patriarca and the Genoveses decided that the dividing line between the two families' territory would be the Connecticut River. In addition to having close ties to the powerful New York Mafia, Patriarca was also on the Mafia's ruling commission and had investments in two Las Vegas casinos. Another of Patriarca's underbosses was Gennaro "Jerry" Angiulo. Angiulo was involved in the numbers racket in Boston, and was being shaken down by rival mobsters because he was not a "made" member. Angiulo solved this problem by paying Patriarca $50,000 and agreeing to pay him $100,000 a year to become a made member of the family. Angiulo was based in Boston and gained complete control of gambling in the city.[citation needed]

The Apalachin Meeting and aftermath

In 1957, more than 60 of the country's most powerful crime bosses met in Apalachin, a hamlet in upstate New York. The meeting was attended by powerful organized crime figures such as Joe Bonanno, Carlo Gambino, and Vito Genovese. Raymond Patriarca was also in attendance and was subsequently arrested with all of the other attendees. The Apalachin Meeting drew a lot of attention to Patriarca from the press, the public, and law enforcement.[citation needed]

The situation became worse for Patriarca and his family in 1961, when Robert F. Kennedy became Attorney General and began an assault on organized crime. Law enforcement agencies worked to develop informers within the mob and finally succeeded in 1966 when Joe Barboza, a hit man for the Patriarca family who claimed to have killed 26 people, was arrested on a concealed weapons charge. Barboza became concerned when Patriarca did not raise his bail and two of his friends were killed for trying to do so. Barboza became an informant not long after, and in 1967, Patriarca and Enrico Tameleo were indicted for the murder of Providence bookmaker, Willie Marfeo. Patriarca was convicted and began serving time in 1969. While Patriarca was in prison, Angiulo served as acting boss. Patriarca was released in 1974 and resumed control of the family.[citation needed]

Patriarca was plagued by law enforcement for the rest of his life and was charged numerous times for a variety of crimes until his death in 1984: in 1978, Vinnie Teresa testified that Patriarca had participated in a 1960 attempt by the Central Intelligence Agency to kill Fidel Castro that was never carried out. In 1983, Patriarca was charged with the murder of Raymond Curcio, and in 1984, he was arrested for the murder of Robert Candos, whom Patriarca believed was an informant.[citation needed] Raymond "Il Patrone" Patriarca died of a heart attack, aged 76, on July 11, 1984.

Vincent Teresa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Vincent "Fat Vinnie" Teresa (1930 – 1990) was an American mobster in the Boston branch of the Patriarca crime family who was a lieutenant of boss Raymond Patriarca.

After he entered witness protection, Teresa wrote three books: the 1973 My Life In The Mafia, co-authored with Newsday writer Thomas C. Renner, which documented his Cosa Nostra career and the 1960s Boston Irish Mob Wars; the 1975 Vinnie Teresa's Mafia, also co-authored with Thomas C. Renner, which documented his life during his time in the Federal Witness Protection Program and beyond; and the 1978 fictional novel Wiseguys, solely written by Teresa.

My Life In The Mafia chronicles Teresa's path to a life in organized crime, his time as a lieutenant for Raymond Patriarca, his fall in the Patriarca crime family, and the circumstances that led to him to seek the protection of the Federal government and the Federal Witness Protection Program. Intelligent and personable, Teresa was as good a federal witness as he was a criminal. His testimony put a large number of the Patriarca crime family in jail. First and foremost, though, one gets the impression that Teresa was always looking out for Teresa.

Vinnie Teresa's Mafia chronicles Teresa's time as a government witness and subsequent life, with a number of anecdotes on his former life in the mob. It is said that Teresa would have been a very sharp and successful businessman even if he never entered a life of crime, and, despite claimed government indifference, he does seem to succeed in making a life for himself and his family once out of witness protection. He was very bitter against the Federal government for his 'treatment' in the Federal Witness Protection Program, feeling they used him with no regard to his safety, or an appreciation of his value. Thomas C. Renner implies this may have been more melodramatics then reality.

Teresa's final book and fictional novel, Wiseguys, was written solely by Teresa and the quality of writing shows it. Teresa largely dictated the first two books to the competent hand of Thomas C. Renner. The story is of one Johnny Forza, a very thinly disguised doppelganger of Teresa. It chronicles Forza's life as a betrayed government witness, his battles with a former friend mob member "Butch" (again, a thinly disguised doppleganger for New Jersey mob member Frank "Butch" Miceli), his life on the lam with his girlfriend and his final confrontations with everyone who has done him wrong. Written poorly in the first person it is more a revenge fantasy than a novel.
One interesting note. Normally, to be come a 'made' member in an Italian mob, one had to first do murder at the direction of the mob. Teresa claimed that while he reached the position of lieutenant in the Patriarca crime family, this was mainly due to his prowess as a money maker for Raymond Patriarca, and that he never murdered anyone. This is debatable as 1) as a lieutenant Teresa at the least would have passed down orders for hits; and 2) he was aware if he had committed murder he would gotten a much stiffer jail sentence. Since he claim not, the government had no evidence to the contrary and he was a very valuable witness, he was taken at his word.

Teresa always lived in fear of being murdered by the Patriarca crime family but seems to have out-lived anyone in that mob that would have cared to kill him. In February 1990, Vincent Teresa died of kidney failure in Seattle, Washington.[1] In an odd twist of events, Thomas C. Renner died a month earlier in January, 1990.
