11/22/63 PRIORITY cable WAVE 8062 from WAVE to Director, slugline RYBAT TYPIC AMCANOE KEYKAY/CIA Europe Division, copy issued to Mr. Tilton 2015 22 Nov: "Cancelling 22 Nov KEYKAY/CIA Europe Division exfil attempt for foll reasons: "SI traffic morning 22 Nov reflects Cuban naval patrols alerted in same general area exfil point "to intercept pirate boats"...AMRIPE-2/"Jose" telephoned AMRIPE-1/"Maggie" early morning 22 Nov and advised, obviously keyed to signals (WAVE 7712) that their son should not take any of courses suggested. WAVE tentatively interprets this conversation to mean exfil attempt should not be made. Phone conversation mentioned paragraph 2 (DIR 84284) indicates info passed and AMCANOE-3/ heading for exfil point. Sea area between Florida Keys and exfil point still (illegible) by heavy seas which makes any exfil attempt impractical with available station boats. AMRIPE-2/"Jose" also advised AMRIPE-1/"Maggie" that he mailed her letter 21 Nov. WAVE interprets this to mean that A-2 sent (shortwave) to WAVE, explaining change in plans, via NIEXIT pouch due Mexico 22 November. In view importance exfiltrating AMCANOE-3/Antonio Jose Ramirez Mendez and obvious complications which would ensue were he arrested, WAVE requests Headquarters use whatever influence available try convince AMCANOE/a Cuban resistance group assets refrain from all unnecessary phone calls to AMCANOES in Cuba."

(FBI) here tells us they questioned Robert Nieto in Miami on basis your tip but he denied all knowledge of plot. FBI pressing us for direct access to source, which of course not possible. Pls cable immediate what itinerary what (Mrs. Unstar) is. (For the accidental revelation of "Mrs. Unstar", see 104-10400-10215.) Can she still be reached? Can she securely come to Miami if still in Nassau? Could she delay her return to Cuba? What is WAVE commo to UNSTAR? Our file shows none. How will UNSTAR report to WAVE by 14 Dec. Note: WAVE 8658 reported from UNSTAR and (illegible) allegations about Cubans being behind Kennedy assassination."
12/9/63 Memorandum for the Record by Chief, CI/SIG Birch O'Neal: FBI liaison officer Sam Papich reports the re-emergence of the rumor "from a western (french) diplomat" who says JFK was killed due to a plot by the ChiComs and Castro jointly. Same as in JMWAVE 8658 (IN 75902). Papich even suggests that the Soviets made up the rumor to "make it rough" on the Chinese Communists and Castro. It also mentions that Ramon Cortes was indicted for impersonating the Guatemalan honorary consul back in 1960.
12/12/63, cable WAVE 8949 from WAVE to Director, slugline RYBAT GPFLOOR PBRUMEN: "JENTONS returned WAVE 12 Dec. In addition to commo channel outlined para 9 Ref C (WAVE 8736 - not sent to MEXI), JENTONS also included in his letter to UNSTAR suggestion that UNSTAR could also send name of source and other details via NIEXIT pouch to NIEXIT-3 in Mexico if UNSTAR felt personal letter via Nassau insecure or slow. UNSTAR should ask NIEXIT-3 pass letter personally to JENTONS. Re Ref B (DIR 87746 - not sent MEXI), assume (FBI) questioned Nieto on alleged Dallas contacts, since Ref A (WAVE 8658 - not sent MEXI) reported only that Nieto could give info on Dallas contacts." Chief of Station comments: According to UNSTAR, Fidel Castro reportedly extremely concerned with persistence of investigation into President Kennedy's murder and with possible disclosures that could result. (FBI) pressing for direct access to source, which of course not possible. JENTONS queried Mrs. UNSTAR at length, but satisfied she has no further knowledge."
Goodpasture's memo copies this cable and fills in the blanks (http://maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=8660&relPageId=55&search=%22niexit%22): "JENTONS also included in his letter to UNSTAR suggestion that UNSTAR could also send name of source and other details via NIEXIT pouch to NIEXIT-3 in Mexico if UNSTAR felt personal letter via Nassau insecure or slow. UNSTAR should ask NIEXIT-3 pass letter personally to JENTONS...assume (FBI) questioned Nieto on alleged Dallas contacts, since Ref A reported only that Nieto could give info on Dallas contacts."
