Pereira emerging in LIENVOY (CIA telephone tapping program in Mexico City, targeting Cuban and Soviet embassies and run in conjunction with the Mexican DFS) take as homosexual but blatant conversations lead to suspicion this may be provocation.

12/19/78: Memo for the record from Donald R. Heath, Jr., IAD/CAS/Soviet Ops/X: "1. During the spring-summer of 1962 the Chief of our Miami Station, Theodore Shackley, established procedures for mobilizing station personnel, area agents and casual sources to cope with sudden emergencies where fast and continuing collection and reporting were needed...2. When President Kennedy was assassinated the Station was well organized to mobilize a fairly massive search for information relating to the magnicide. I recall being told to get into immediate contact with all my local agents and to direct them in the search for informational leads which might turn up an exile Cuban conspiratorial group possibly involved in the assassination and to seek any other information which might turn up evidence about the murder. All other staff officers in the station were mobilized for this effort. That is to say, all staff officers who had agents and informants. In addition to our local search for information those of us with agents in Cuba sent SW, OWVL and WT messages asking questions about possible Cuban government ties to the assassination. I also recall making a trip to Mexico in late November or early December 1963 specifically to meet with my on-island agent AMWEE-1 (Massimo Muratori del Balso) for the purpose of debriefing him on information he had heard in Cuban government, diplomatic and public circles in Cuba about the assassination. 3. My general recollection is that the Miami Station's search for leads to the President's assassination continued well into 1964 and was considered a high priority undertaking ordered by the Chief of Station."
