Summary & Notes:

   Verbónico Vaquedano, local outlaw (association with EDSN never clear)
   Searching houses in La Jita; how did locals feel about snooping Marine patrols?
   Nueva Segovia Dept. presented as though it had a clear border from León Dept.

   Intelligence report:  going through the motions; hard to imagine more cursory summaries.
