15. Editorial Note

In late August 1952 the Central Intelligence Agency informed Castillo Armas that the Guatemalan Government had intercepted his letters to supporters in Mexico. Castillo Armas reported, however, that he knew about the government’s paid agent and had instructed his supporters to avoid him, but he acknowledged that the agent had likely received information from conversations with his men.
