Return to Main Crypts Page

A Chilean CIA media company, referred to within the CIA as "a proprietary".
A cable on April 15, 1959, stated that HQs advised that Furler was to be in Havana on 16 April for possibly recruiting a Caracas FUSEE SGRANGER (probably Latin America) representative. A dispatch in March of 1966 mentioned that AMMOP-1 had stated that his letter was replayed by FUSEE, and was the basis for an article in a Santiago newspaper by Identity C (Jorge Roman). The letter was based on Fidel Castro's speech on March 13, 1966, which contained an verbal attack by Castro on Eduardo Frei, the Chilean President. The letter requested support for Frei's position, and asked the recipients to join the struggle to overthrow the Cuban regime of Fidel Castro. It was sent to Christian Democratic Party individuals and organizations. A 1976 Church Committee document on CIA proprietary companies mentioned that FUSEE had been a media proprietary company/entity of the CIA, and had been dissolved.
