4728. Re: [telegram indicator not declassified] 746;2 GUAT 049.3

LINC declines to suggest any candidates aside from those already proposed by Ontrich as it now appears to be the prerogative of the field and particularly JMBLUG.
It is now apparent that the present govt of WSBURNT is entirely KUBARK PBSUCCESS character and that a period of vigorous consolidation must now be undertaken to ensure ultimate success this operation. Although this phase is primarily ODACID’s responsibility it is urged that KUBARK through WHD consider this area a matter of primary interest until completely stabilized.
