104-10414-10061: DISPATCH: LIONION/LIONION-2

4/25/68 dispatch from Chief of Station, Mexico City to Chief, Western Hemisphere Division: "...(Setting up) two audio installations thus provide LIONION-1 with a greater capability to identify visitors to LIRING (through live monitoring) and thus affix names to photographs he takes. Previously, the identification of visitors to LIRING required considerable time and effort but in the short period of LIONION's audio capability this effort has decreased measurably."

104-10110-10306: PHILIP BURNETT FRANKLIN AGEE

07/10/72: CIA report from Elsie I. Scaletti: Page 7: "Getting Phil to come to our end of the hall a couple of times. I was not in on the discussions between C/Cuba (Raymond F. Fradyer) and Phil, but I believe they were mainly held to see who Phil had met who might be useful against the Cuban target. I know we thought at the time Phil was spending almost full time on his overt activities and the SB target, and he gave the Cuban target little attention..."

8/11/78: CIA officer Joseph Piccolo testified at deposition that he "has heard several times that Charlotte Bustos/Elsie Scaletti found a photograph of Oswald at CIA Headquarters. He was not certain as to when he first heard the latter story but stated that he was certain he had heard it prior to the last time that he heard it. He stated that that last time that he had heard the story was with a discussion with a man with whom he shares an office. He said that the man, Mr. Dan Niescuir, had worked on the case during an 'in house' investigation a couple of years ago." Niescuir is also known as Neiscuir/Charles Roistade. Piccolo also said that he had seen two of these surveillance photos of Oswald himself, and was told they were taken in Mexico. (page 4 of 9)
