Cryptonym: OD

Definition:
Departments or agencies of the U.S. government.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
Given that all of roughly a dozen decoded crypts beginning with OD are departments or agencies of the U.S. government (or in the case of ODYOKE, the U.S. government itself), this identification of the OD digraph seems certain.

Final Report of the Assassinations Records Review Board, p. 52

"The Review Board also generally released CIA "digraphs" - the first two letters of a crypt that link a particular crypt to a particular location. CIA often created crypts to refer to other U.S. government agencies; for example, the FBI was "ODENVY".

Inside the Company, by Philip Agee, p. 38

from the book: All government agencies have a cryptonym beginning with OD.
