Good find Stephen, that looks to be perfectly consistent with the fact that in 1960 a background

investigation was requested on Bannisters PI firm - it was being considered as a cover company

and the related project was listed as QK/ENCHANT. See page 427 of SWHT for details.

Looks like we are getting a pretty good handle that crypt - finally. Larry

Ah, thanks Larry. Helpful context.

Appreciate the link Stephen.

One of the more interesting points it the document is the confirmation that the Mullen Agency participated in a cooperative relationship with the Agency, lending itself to serve as a work cover and most likely an

information conduit as well (those redacted words would be most interesting). If I'm reading the document correctly Hunt was actually given QKENCHANT clearance to essentially manage CIA contacts when

his boss was not available. I wonder how many other agency "retirees" were farmed out and given clearance to run contacts for cooperative companies? In any event it confirms a number of things about

such commercial relationships which we normally just speculate about....
