He will travel Puerto Rico on personal business on 14 January on Viasa flight 792 departing Caracas at 1715. 2. Re para 2 ref, WKSCARLET-3 has almost no chance of remaining in WKSCARLET. While station has no information as to who will replace WKSCARLET-1, rumors have it that Erasto Fernandez (note: CIRASH-4) may get job for first three months of new administration in order 'clean' out WKSCARLET. WKSCARLET-3 and Fernandez are, to say least, not best of friends and Fernandez has told WKSCARLET-9 that WKSCARLET-3 must leave WKSCARLET. WKSCARLET-3 has also told station that he does not think he can stay in WKSCARLET. 3. According to WKNOBLE-8, new government intends set up national police force which would probably include a narcotics section with nationwide responsibilities. Station has urged WKSCARLET-3 to talk to his friends and contacts in order obtain medium or high level job in that section and he had agreed. Station feels he has at least even chance of obtaining such a job. If he does not get job by about 31 March 74, station plans offer him to DEA as source or terminate him if they have no use for him..." - - - 2022 release, page 129: https://documents2.theblackvault.com/documents/jfkfiles/jfk2022/104-10178-10001.pdf

104-10178-10002: POSADA, LUIS CLEMENTE.

10/00/76: Cable from Caracas to Director: Slugline WNINTEL RYBAT KMSTONE MHSPIKE: Page 3-4: ..."4. WKSCARLET-9 appears not to be involved in the above but his Cuban background and close association with W-1, especially in recent weeks, undoubtedly has brought him some notice and probably suspicion. WKSCARLET-9 has not been met since since he missed a meeting in late September; he called in the next day to say that he was not able to make it. He subsequently called his case officer's home once while he was out but has not called back to specify a time for the next meeting: He also has not responded to three recent RS-700 signals to call in and one to make an emergency meeting on the night of 8 October. Station has decided against calling him during this current tense period at his only reachable number - his and WKNOBLE-1's home. We will continue signalling and awaiting his call in. FYI: With WKSCARLET-9's new post in WKSCARLET goes a round-the-clock armed escort which he has to rid himself of before making a clandestine meeting with his case officer; WKSCARLET-9 has expressed concern over the security problems of meetings in his current situation, especially since he has many enemies in, or until recently in, WKSCARLET who would love to tar him with the BKHERALD (CIA) brush. Someone with his Cuban background, of course, is especially vulnerable to this charge in the atmosphere of the current furor about exiles in Venezuela. Will advise as soon as WKSCARLET-9 recontact is established..." - - - 2022 release, page 62: https://documents2.theblackvault.com/documents/jfkfiles/jfk2022/104-10178-10002.pdf
