Discussion:
Two cables from Frankfurt on July 15, 1966, stated that Digerveno was IDEN A, and was using IDEN B as an operations alias. Emilio Americo Rodriguez was confirmed as the true identity of Digerveno. Langosch (Harold Swenson) was also mentioned in the first cable.

07/15/66: Cable from Frankfurt to Rome, Beirut (Quaintance Acting): CITE FRANKFURT 5899: KAPOK TYPIC: "1. FYI Rome: Digerveno is IDEN A using IDEN B ops alias. Assume Beirut will cable ETA. (REDACTION) is IDEN C using IDEN D ops alias. He is participating agent training. 2. After initial Digerveno debriefing of Romero, barring unforeseen complications either Langosch (Harold Swenson) or (REDACTION) could follow up. Decision depends on circumstances under which debriefing will take place in Italy. Will appreciate Rome comments per Refs A and B, including views on whether Langosch participation would inhibit future ops use in Italy. 3. FYI JMWAVE: AMVAN has tentative arrangements for another meet with Nunez which may facilitate (REDACTION) use in Italy. Will advise developments. 4. Suggest Rome cable contact Digerveno instructions to Beirut. *Concurred Digerveno stopover Italy to handle Romero screening interviews."
