1973 CIA memo to Associate Deputy Director for Operations. 104-10414-10387. "The KDFACTOR Project until 1970 (encrypted as the LIEMPTY Project) was initially approved in 1958 to provide financial and material support for visual and photographic surveillance operations targeted against the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City...The decision to terminate all agents and facilities under the KDFACTOR Project was based on a security review of the project which indicated that the VWBLANKET principal knew the basic details of the KDFACTOR operations, including the target, the location of the surveillance sites, and probably the true names and former cryptonyms of the agents covered by the project."
