Cryptonym: FUBIAS-7

Definition:
Enrique Villarrea, worked on the FUBIAS Project in 1965. It appeared to contain some kind of DRE involvement. Villarrea worked closely with Reinaldo Pico Ramon (AMICE-31) in the early months of 1965 in particular.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
In May 1965 a cable from the Director of the CIA stated that the FUBIAS Project should be terminated, with FUBIAS-5 also being terminated, but Villarrea and FUBIAS-4 being possibly retained in other projects by the Agency. JMWAVE and WH Division agreed with the termination of the project.
