CAJEEP/2 (IDEN) presently LEOP negotiating contract to supply non-PBPRIME (U.S.) pilots and mechanics for Congolese airforce school in Congo. LEOP station posing as interested TPELIDE officials in contact C/2 who not formally aware but probably suspects KUBARK (CIA) involvement, no objection making C-2 witting KUBARK interest. 2. Request prob contact C-2 upon return Wiesbaden mid April to obtain names and bio data on candidates for Congo jobs with object in some cases of their recruitment as KUBARK agents.
