104-10414-10124: MEXICO CITY STATION HISTORY, EXCERPTS

"This project was submitted in late 1964 by Robert T. Shaw for the purpose of consolidating into one administrative group a number of active Cuban informants...the objective was to develop positive intelligence and counterespionage information on the activities and personnel of the Cuban embassy in Mexico, with a view towards recruiting intelligence officers and placing technical devices inside the official installations. Both of these objectives were realized. The agents inside the Embassy provided CIA with sufficient casing data to permit the installation of the only unilateral audio network (LISAMPAN)...The first project provided for 11 access agents. The most productive of these was the LITAMILs and the LITAINTs. Marginal agents were LIOLEO-1, LISICLE-1, AMSEVER-2, AMPACA-1, and LICARD-1.
