Please note that the SGSWIRL interviewer has made the point that the principal misfortune in this interview probably was that LIRING/3 was not tested on the fabrication of contacts with the IDEN D's, which was thought to be the most probable area of deception. 3. In view of LIRING/3's threat to quit working for Rowton, we would be interested in hearing of any repercussions or change of attitude that may have resulted from LIRING/3's having taken the test. We are also interested in the Station's comments and recommendations as to the continued use of LIRING/3, bearing in mind Rowton's recent report of LIRING suspicions that L-3 may be working for WOFIRM. Chester R. Mendrick." Originating Officer: W. Kerbe, WH/1. Coordinating Officer: Withheld, OS/IRD. Releasing Officer: W. J. Kaufman, C/WH/1.
