04/05/67: Dispatch from Chief, WH Division to COS, Mexico City: Subject: LIENVOY: "Project LIENVOY was approved, with the following comment: 'There is a weakness in the operation because of its size. The thrust of mere numbers - transcribers, lines tapped, reports produced, leads exploited - increases the mathematical probability of compromise. The Station appears to be fully aware of this problem and is maintaining tight security discipline.' No chances were made in the project and the approving period is 1 February 1967 through 31 January 1968. (Initials: T.H.B) Theresa H. Bachardy." Originating Officer: Withheld, WH/1. Releasing Officer: Kaufman, C/WH/1.

Would you please verify for us that the salaries as submitted in the renewal are those being paid, and if this is the case, would you also prepare revised MOCs (?) and send us copies.

104-10522-10000: DISPATCH-POSSIBLE MEXICAN REAMIFICATIONS OF ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY

08/08/67: Dispatch from Chief, WH Division to COS, Mexico City: "1. An LNERGO (FBI, used during the late 60s and 70s) informant alleges that 'quite some time' before the assassination of President Kennedy, Oswald met in Mexico City with a member of WOFACT (CIA) whose alias was Bill Medina. The latter's true name was not known to the informant. Would you please advise whether the name Bill Medina is known in any context? We assume there is no connection with IDENTITY but would appreciate your comments. 2. Another LNERGO report includes a statement to the effect that one Sam Depino, News Department, WVUE Television, New Orleans claimed to have received information that District Attorney Garrison might try to connect an ex-Nazi now living in Mexico City with the assassination. The ex-Nazi was supposedly active in the propaganda field and was also described as 'one of the heads of (WOFACT) in Mexico.' Can you surmise who might be the identity of this incongruous descripting. Theresa H. Bachardy."

LIENVOY was estimated at $57,000 in our recent FY 1968 program exercise, so we must that you stay within this figure in the renewal. If you will be needing replacements for equipment for the LP, would it be possible to reallocate funds previously budgeted for LISALAD and for 'purchase of information' to cover the cost of such procurement? 3. Headquarters appreciates the carefully detailed renewals which you prepare on LIENVOY because they give such a good picture of what the project produces.
