Joan Mellen, "Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?" (2008) http://www.maryferrell.org/pages/Essay_-_Who_Was_Lee_Harvey_Oswald.html

"(In) Thomas B. Casasin’s memo to Walter P. Haltigan, Casasin writes: “as chief of the 6 Branch I had discussed – sometime in Summer 1960 (he later corrected that date to “1962”) with the then Chief and Deputy Chief of the 6 Research Section the laying on of interview(s) [with Oswald] through KUJUMP [the operations division] or other suitable channels.” KUJUMP had a contacts division for debriefing persons. KUJUMP was synonymous with 00 (Contacts Division)."

10/2/62 memo: Request to set up meeting between KUJUMP and Mario del Canal/AMOT-110 denied - info from del Canal as a RESCATE official already being passed through the Consejo group. This may be an attempt by Tony Varona to find out other local CIA contacts.

11/25/63 memo from Thomas B. Casasin to Walter Haltigan: "It makes little difference now, but REDWOOD had at one time an OI interest in Oswald. As soon as I had heard Oswald's name, I recalled that as chief of the 6 branch I had discussed - sometime in summer 1960 - with the then Chief and Deputy Chief of the 6 Research Division the laying on of interview(s) through KUJUMP or other suitable channels."
