Cryptonym: SLSTEEL-1

Return to Main Crypts Page

Definition:
SLSTEEL-1 was probably Jose Enrique Camejo Argudin, UN representative.
Status:
Probable
Discussion:
A memo from LAD/JFK Task Force stated PLSLSTEEL-1 was formerly AMANVIL-1, AMCLOCK-1 and INDEVOUT-3. INDEVOUT-3 was probably Jose Enrique Camejo Argudin. Another document from the task force stated that it was SLSTEEL-1 instead of PLSLSTEEL-1. SL appears to be the digraph for figures related to the Cuban Government, particularly intelligence officers. Therefore, this cryptonym is much more likely to be SLSTEEL-1 than PLSLSTEEL-1.
