Cryptonym: YOACRE

Definition:
Guantanamo Naval Base.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
One of the references translates YOACRE as "Cuba", but the crypt is specifically linked to the Guantanamo Naval Base. The last two sources make it clear that YOACRE is the Guantanamo Naval Base itself.
Sources:

104-10057-10102: WITHHELD

Page has numerous references to YOACRE. Compare to the following reference (104-10052-10424), where all these references are redacted and replaced with the handwritten word "CUBA".

104-10052-10424: STATUS REPORT ON OPERATION: EXFILTRATE SOVIETS FROM CUBA

Compare this page to previous reference - Cuba is substituted for YOACRE. The CIA analyst reviewing the documents did not want to admit that YOACRE was the naval base - instead, the analyst made the misleading admission that YOACRE is part of Cuba.

1994.04.12.15:51:14:380005: Reel 26, Folder H - EJERCITO LIBERTADOR DE CUBA

Harvey says that Perez's most significant lie was when he said that he was exfiltrated from Guantanamo on September 1. Compare to following reference (104-10171-10352), where Perez says that he was exfiltrated from YOACRE on Sept. 1.

104-10171-10352: CABLE: ON 28 SEPT STATION DEBRIEFED AMDENIM/11 JUST RETURNED

9/29/62 cable from JMWAVE to Director: "On 28 Sept station debriefed AMDENIM-11 just returned from Cuba where he worked YOACRE for Nat Harrison Construction Company...A-11 claims he held meet...two kilometers outside YOACRE."

104-10269-10291 INFORMATION ON EDUARDO PEREZ-

9/29/62 memo from CNO to Naval Base Gitmo asks if Eduardo Perez works at Nat Harrison and if there is a "Captain Jefferie" phonetic stationed at the naval base. By turning to the previous page, the reader sees the 9/29/62 response memo from Naval Base Gitmo to CNO: Eduardo Perez-Gonzalez (AMDENIM-11) of Santiago is former employee of Nat Harrison...approached Captain William Gentry, repeat Gentry, not Jeffries, present Marine Corps security and intelligence officer, and indicated desire to exfiltrate to Cuba...Base hoped to obtain reports of missile and troop build-up. (Plan) was to swim into Cuba from US side." Next page
