The interview with Maggard said "Mo Maggard stated that she had been in Mexico from 1955-1960 and from 1965-1968. She said she was in Baghdad in 1963. She stated that she was replaced by Thomas Keenan in 1960. She said that Anne Goodpasture had originally gone to Mexico as a CI staffer but had ended up working personally for Win Scott on operations such as the liaison tap..."

There were some minor variations in Gene Cox's interview. "Baghdad" was redacted out, instead of Thomas Keenan there was "Ted Walsh", instead of Anne Goodpasture there was "employee", and instead of Win Scott there was "station chief."

Notes from Anne Goodpasture in February of 1977 stated that "Frank Estancona and Peggy Maggard replaced Anderson in handling the unilateral phone taps." Furthermore, a HSCA document in March, 1978, stated that Maggard was still employed with LA/Caribbean Branch under State Department cover.
