Fielding is a Go

On a Saturday, Hunt and Liddy purportedly are in Room 16 when Liddy tells Hunt that the plan to do a break-in of Fielding’s office is approved, but that the two of them are not “to be permitted anywhere near the target premises.” E. Howard Hunt then calls Bernard Barker in Miami and asks if Barker can “put together a three-man entry team.” Barker calls back to say it will be Barker, Eugenio Martinez, and Felipe De Diego. [NOTE: As luck would have it, this happens to be the same three men Hunt had met with in Miami two months before the Pentagon Papers were published. See 17 April 1971.]
