PDF pages 127-128: "LILISP-X was a cryptonym which identified the funds available for operational development activities for any type of CA (note: covert action) capability. In 1961, there were REDACTED CA projects with a total budget of $229,600. This increase was part of an overall WH expansion in political action and covert operations on Cuba in order to combat and overcome threats in US security arising from revolutionary turmoil centered in Cuba and the Caribbean in general. For the same reasons, the CA budget and program continued to expand until in 1964 there were REDACTED projects at a cost of $542,000."
