10/04/71: Cable from Miami to Headquarters: Slugline RYBAT MHCURB MHCHAOS: REF: HEADQUARTERS 5365: "1. Re para 4 ref, Station has no objections to querying AMBEDEW-1 (probably Orlando Castro Hidalgo). We plan forward photos of eight suspect DSE agents in Miami area for review by AMBEDEW-1. We are showing these to AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) and AMCARD-1. These were shown to AMGAME-1, who could not identify. 2. Two points in ref are worthy of comment in that we are taking word of person like HYSAGE-1 (Thelma King) in this matter. First, just because she called Cuban an 'illegal' does not necessarily mean that such is case. She might be saying this to throw us off or on other hand she might have been told this by Cubans. Thus, do not believe we can dismiss completely possibility that Cuban in question is diplomat. Secondly, question of scar should not be accepted as gospel, since it could be contrived mark or even subterfuge on part of HYSAGE-1. 3. Since traffic this matter now MHCHAOS (program from 1966-74 to gather intelligence on possible foreign connections of US protest organizations), please advise if we can communicate laterally with Mexico City and Caracas through this channel."

01/07/72: Dispatch from COS, WH/Miami to COS, Mexico City (Info: Chief, Western Hemisphere Division): Subject: PBRUMEN/Nelson Quesada Rivero (201-836379): ..."2. Immediately upon the receipt of the Reference B photographs, the undersigned reviewed with AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) the one of Nelson Quesada Rivero with negative results. AMGAME-1, however, did recognize the name of Quesada and identified him as being AMSTAFF (probably DGI). Needless to say, we will show AMGAME-1 the photograph of Subject at the earliest opportunity to determine how well he knows him and if warranted, will debrief him in detail on Subject. 3. The Reference B photograph of Subject will be reviewed with the other AMSTAFF/AMQUAKE assets residing in the JMCOBRA (also known as Station WH/Miami) area and we will promptly inform you of the results." 201-749651, 201-816552, 201-836379.

02/15/72: Cable from WH/Miami to Madrid (Info: Director): Slugline AKULE TYPIC AMETROPIA: "1. Appreciate ref info on Roberto Rodriguez Llompart. Believe, however, that your priority targets rightfully take precedence over this rather elusive one and suggest that we stand down on any effort to position AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) for possible contact. This, until such time that Rodriguez is PCS or in a TDY status long enough to permit an orderly approach. 2. FYI: AMGAME-1 who knows Rodriguez, assesses him as being a worthwhile target and possibly recruitable. 3. File: 201-865547, 201-816552, 201-749651."
