Cryptonym: ODALOE

Definition:
U.S. Secret Service.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
There are few documents referencing ODALOE in CIA files available on this website, but those few show the identification of ODALOE as the U.S. Secret Service.

Note that ODFOAM is also used as a cryptonym for the U.S. Secret Service, during the same time frame.

This FBI memo from the day of the JFK assassination refers to a telephone call with "Harry Geiglin, Chief of the Washington district office of the Secret Service." Coupled with the previous document, this confirms the ODALOE id.
