Discussion:
Stanley M. Moos was almost certainly mentioned in Anne Goodpasture's history of the Mexico City Station. A passage on Samuel Orrison's loss of two briefcases in Mexico City read: "Moos was returned to Headquarters for a technical interrogation on 19 December 1960. He appeared to be truthful in the reporting of the loss and circumstances surrounding the incident. There was no evidence of deception." https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=162979#relPageId=147&tab=page The next page mentioned Twicker and Orrison's pseudonyms, with Hunt assigned the pseudo of Twicker. Notice that Orrison's real name is redacted, but in terms of the space/size of the redaction it is very similar to Hunt's?

A cable on December 10, 1960, had a handwritten note which said "Re 'Orrison affair'" at the top. The cable also mentioned that Joseph Langan, Chief of the CIA's Office of Security, planned to take Dudley J. Pachuke to Washington for a lie detector test ETA December 12, 1960. Then he would travel via Houston to conduct a security check on Pachuke's house.

Anne Goodpasture's history of Mexico City Station mentioned above, stated that Orrison was "a 45-year old US citizen who had served as a career agent in Mexico from 1951 to May 1960. He worked extensively on CA projects, using commercial cover. (REDACTION) was hired as a contract employee at $5,000 per year but was raised to $8,330 with career agent status before he resigned in May 1960 and moved to Houston, Texas. In August 1960, (REDACTION) was recruited again by E. Howard Hunt to work on CIA projects on a part-time basis on business trips made between Houston and Mexico City...(REDACTION) visited the station offices in Miami and Headquarters in November 1960 for a briefing on aspects of his job. He then spent Thanskgiving in Houston with his family..."

Therefore, Stanley M. Moos had the pseudonyms of Samuel G. Orrison and Dudley J. Pachuke.
