147. Telegram From the CIA Station in [place not declassified] to Operation PBSUCCESS Headquarters in Florida1

997. Re: LINC 2622.2 [name not declassified] advised Dubois that negative turned over to ODACID. ODACID chief confirmed to Dubois that negative has been forwarded to PBPRIME. Dubois satisfied and asked no further questions. To offset considerable opinion that there was no submarine and story was a plant by [name not declassified] Magoffin leaking to known gossips fact that he has seen negative and that it appears to be genuine. Whispering campaign underway only 3 days but having moderate success.
