MEXICO CITY CHRONOLOGY COVERING PERIOD 27 SEPT 63 - 3 FEB 1968

Reference to "MEXICO CITY 0564 - Mexi Eng news article by Robert S. Allen and Paul Scott, 2 Mar Wash, states, 'Still secret (CIA) report on Oswald's Sept activities which was sent to the State Dept Intelligence Division on 11 Oct 1963 could possibly shed some new light on the Mexi trip and possibly other links of the accused assassin.' Station believes this memo may be based on MEXI 6453, 8 Oct 63 (para 9 above). Recommend that this memo not be declassified for newspaper sources since this would blow LIENVOY and give grounds for criticism against (CIA) and LIRAMA. Believe would also further convince LIRAMA of poor security in State Dept./Please advise action taken (to) protect LIENVOY."

104-10188-10052: (ASSET) DEVELOPMENT AND PLANS.

12/19/66, dispatch from Chief, Mexico City to Director: "The LIENVOY Project was created in late 1958 and put into operation in early 1959 at the request of LITENSOR who appointed LIELEGANT as his special assistant to work with (Chief of Station Win Scott) in the supervision and administration of the project. In mid-1964 it became evident that LIRAMA would replace LITENSOR in December 1964. (LIRAMA was then LITEMPO-2 and a clandestine liaison contact with (Win Scott) under the LITEMPO project but was not knowledgable of the (Scott)/LIELEGANT/LITENSOR relationship with Project LIENVOY...both LIELEGANT and LIENVOY-2 were given nominal positions on LIRAMA's staff with cover for daily contact with LIRAMA...Mexican targets (for LIENVOY): Of the 30 lines covered, at least 15 of them are always exclusively for (CIA), the remaining targets are selected by LIRAMA but are also of definite interest to (CIA) as sources of positive and CE/CI intelligence." At page 69 of 101, a chart reveals that Mexico City chief Win Scott's counterparts in the Mexican government are "LIRAMA, LIELEGANT, LIERGO, and LIENVOY-1".
