10/08/60: Cable from MASH to Director (Meigs Acting): Slugline JMNET: "1. Reasons Twicker suggesting funding MEXI AMRASP (FRD - Democratic Revolutionary Front).) delegation via Orrison were: (A) Terminate delegation politicking and in attention to business by establishing Orrison as boss; (B) Allowing Orrison to direct delegation activity by controlling funds; and (C) Establishing KUBARK (CIA) rather than Miami AMCIGAR (Frente Revolucionario Democratico -FRD -Executive Committee) control over funds and activity. 2. Practical application this policy discussed with Juan Paula, AMRASP comptroller, who agreed difficult for him and his staff audit delegation account at long distance, and would prefer MEXI delegation account to Bender rep in MEXI as providing closer scrutiny. 3. Whether Station MEXI or MASH processes accountings ultimately less important than making AMRASP/MEXI a controlled, productive and responsible group. 4. Para two Ref B welcomed as SOP clarification. 5. Will discuss details during Sadorus TDY."
