pseudonym
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
The dispatch was signed in the name of the Chief, Western Hemisphere Division (WHD). At this time this was William V. Broe, which was probably an alias for W. J. Kaufman, mentioned above. As Kaufman was a more senior CIA officer than Charles M. Bounds, then it is more likely that Kenneth G. Furnell was a pseudonym used by Jack Kaufman.
