Pseudonym: Telegades, Eugene
The first cable stated that IDEN A telephoned Raymond N. Laffitte (IDEN B) to request a meeting in Mexico with CIA contract agent Eugene B. Telegades (IDEN C), and CIA staff employee Laffitte to discuss the current youth student situation in Central America. IDEN A knew Laffitte and Telegades through their past and present youth and student activities. Telegades and Laffitte would arrive in Mexico on the evening of October 30th, and would return to the U.S. on the afternoon of October 31st. Telegades and Laffitte would stay at the Del Prado Hotel.
In the identities cable, IDEN B was Manuel Aragon, described as "previously active Latin American youth and students events presently self employed as professional consultant in Washington." IDEN A was Fernando Andre, and IDEN C was Robert Kiley, with IDEN A described as being a Guatemala youth leader. IDEN C was a past president of United States national student association (USNSA), and was "presently carrying on advanced research in Washington."
Bob Kiley was mentioned in a memo in December of 1971 in the CIA's "Family Jewels" file. The memo stated that an article in RAMPARTS magazine in January 1972 was expected to say "Bob Kiley and Drex Godfrey, it is suggested, are still in the employ of CIA working on a CIA plan to improve police organizations in this country. I said that this was palpably false as anyone who knows Kiley and Godfrey would understand."
An obituary for Robert (Bob) Kiley on the Vineyard Gazette website on August 10, 2016, stated he was in the CIA from 1963 to 1970, "ultimately serving as executive assistant to CIA Director Richard Helms." Kiley later worked on large scale public transport projects in Boston, New York and London, in a distinguished career.

I told the group that we must expect all kinds of irresponsible accusations in the press, such as the one in the January 1972 issue of RAMPARTS magazine in which Bob Kiley and Drex Godfrey, it is suggested, are still in the employ of CIA working on a CIA plan to improve police organizations in this country.

08/10/2016: Obituary on the Vineyard Gazette website: Titled: Robert (Bob) Kiley, Respected Transportation Expert and Public Servant, Longtime Chilmarker: "Robert R. (Bob) Kiley, the widely respected transportation expert who transformed public transit in Boston, New York and London, died early Tuesday at his home in Chilmark. He was 80. The cause was complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He revived Boston’s ailing public transport systems in the 1970s. In New York in the 1980s he instituted management reforms and secured $8 billion in state capital funds that were essential to the rebuilding of New York’s transit system. From 2001 to 2006, he was the first Commissioner of Transport for London, and oversaw the rebuilding of the century-old Tube, its subway stations, subway cars and rail infrastructure. He greatly increased bus and subway ridership by successfully implementing the controversial measure of congestion charging for car drivers. 'Bob Kiley is one of the best public servants I have ever known,' said former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, who now teaches at university. 'When my students want an example of public leadership at its best, I tell them about Bob'. When Mr. Kiley announced he was leaving London in 2005, London Mayor Ken Livingstone said: 'The positive impact of his transport legacy will be felt by Londoners for many years to come'...Robert Raymond Kiley was born on Sept. 16, 1935 in Minneapolis, Minn., son of Georgianna Smith Kiley and Raymond Kiley, an executive with Woolworth Co. He went to St. Thomas Military Academy in St. Paul, Minn. and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame. He was elected president of the National Student Association. For the next two years he served as U.S. representative to the Coordinating Secretariat of the International Student Association (COSEC) based in Leiden, Holland. Subsequently, he studied government and foreign policy at Harvard Graduate School." (CONTINUED BELOW).
"In 1963 he joined the Central Intelligence Agency, ultimately serving as executive assistant to CIA Director Richard Helms. Mr. Kiley left the CIA in 1970 and worked as assistant director at the Police Executive Research Forum in Washington, D.C., where he developed and oversaw police reform programs with municipal governments in the United States. Two years later, he was appointed deputy mayor of Boston for public safety during the crisis over court-ordered busing to end school segregation. In the midst of one of Boston’s most violent and divisive periods, Mr. Kiley developed a reputation for being cool under pressure. He was also the lead recruiter of Robert DiGrazia to head the Boston police, initiating a period of reform and recruitment of new talent, including William Bratton’s first police job. He held this position for three years under Mayor Kevin White. In the summer of 1974, he endured a series of stunning losses. His wife of eight years, Patricia Potter Kiley, and their two-year-old daughter and four-year-old son died after a car crash in New York. Two months later, his father died. In 1975, incoming Governor Dukakis appointed him as the first chairman and CEO of the reorganized Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). Mr. Kiley revolutionized decades of patronage hiring by introducing a lottery system of hiring drivers and workers, thereby opening well-paid jobs at the T to minorities and women. He began the southwest corridor relocation of the Orange Line, the largest grant in the history of the federal program up to that time, and completed the Orange Line extension north to Oak Grove Station in Malden. He oversaw the introduction of light rail vehicles on the Green Line, and began the Red Line extension to Alewife. He ordered new trains for the commuter rail system, and new buses and new subway cars for the Blue and Orange lines..."
