"Why two tap operations? LIENVOY and LIFEAT were known within the Agency as ZRJOINT and ZRSOLO. It’s pretty clear why. LIENVOY was a joint operation with the DFS. LIFEAT, on the other hand, was strictly a US affair insulated from DFS scrutiny. Goodpasture described LIENVOY as very insecure because it was a joint operation with DFS."

Paul Levister's report to Staff D in late 1963 estabished that "nine target lines made up 80% of the LIENVOY production".
