104-10211-10102: DISPATCH: OPERATIONAL REPORT 1-31 OCTOBER 1963

"As of the end of October 1963, it was well-known that LITEMPO-2 would be the PRI candidate."

104-10516-10061: DISPATCH: REQUEST FOR DATA ON TERRORISTS TRANSITING MEXICO

10/25/63 memo from Win Scott: "It is the station's belief that Litempo-2 would act in most cases in the manner requested by KUBARK, assuming he was able to do so. On the majority of the instances this might amount to simple harassment, police interrogation, "losing" the individual's papers and subsequently expelling him from the country for being without documents, subsequently jailing an individual on trumped up charges for a short period before expelling him, etc. there may be other refinements that could be worked out as we go along."
