Cryptonym: CIFENCE-5

Definition:
Unknown identity. A dispatch in November of 1969 stated that CIFENCE-5 was formerly CIVISTA-8, and that CIFENCE-5's 201 number was 201-287019.
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
CIFENCE-5's 201 number appeared in at least two other documents. The undated June Cobb Biographic Data document contained 201-287019. As did a cable in January, 1969, which mentioned AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) and Henry Pachankis (possibly Jack Stewart). AMMUG-1's 201 number of 201-749651 was also mentioned in this cable. Therefore, the 201 number of CIFENCE-5's, 201-287019, may have been linked to Henry Pachankis or Vladimir Lahera.
