Cryptonym: KUTUBE/D

Definition:
CIA "Staff D" responsible for SIGINT (Signals Intelligence - electronic intercepts), where the ZR/RIFLE "executive action" (assassination) program was housed.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
Legendary CIA officer William Harvey ran Staff D and its ZR/RIFLE program during the early 1960s. The secrecy of Staff D's signal intelligence work presumably made it a good place for the secret assassination program.
