Considering authorization bomb Matamoros Fortress or Adam petroleum storage on basis LINC recommendation and previously expressed views of JMBLUG and KUBARK reps. Wish to be sure JMBLUG still believes bombing of selected targets Adam area would be highly effective as contribution to overthrow of Arbenz regime and desirable move taking into account obvious political risks and current appeal by WSBURNT government to UN Security Council alleging threat of bombing of “open cities”.
