03/28/78: Memorandum from Robert W. Gambino, Director of Security to Legislative Counsel: ..."2. (S) Background: Reference is made to the attached request dated 15 March 1978 (OLC 78-0448/2). The House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) has expressed an interest in reviewing all files pertaining to Projects WUTARDY, WURABBIT, (REDACTION)BONBON, WUHUSTLER for the period August 1963 - December 1964. (S) A search of records of the Office of Security has disclosed no record of Project WUTARDY. Information located on Projects (REDACTION)BONBON and WUHUSTLER is outside of the time frame of interest. Minimal material has been found regarding Project WURABBIT, particularly within the time period requested. This material, which consists primarily of a request to update a Covert Security Approval on an individual of interest to Project WURABBIT, originated with Domestic Operations Division/Covert Action Staff. Coordination with the Office of the Special Assistant to the Deputy Director for Operations for Oversight indicates that the HSCA request would be more appropriately handled by Foreign Resources Division of the Directorate of Operations in view of the WU diagraph. In view of the foregoing, no material will be made available by the Office of Security. (C) If you have any questions regarding the above, please contact Mr. Bruce Solie (red line 9126) or Mr. John Sullivan (red line 1893) of this Office."
