Cryptonym: AMAROMA-2

Definition:
Unknown identity. A cable to ISOLATION (CIA's Camp Peary, also known as "The Farm") in March of 1965 stated that AMAROMA-2 was known as "Raul."
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
AMLUNT-2's (Duney Perez Alamo) Damage Report on January 12, 1966, mentioned that AMAROMA-2 was exposed to the former as an indigenous agent personnel by his/her real name. In addition, a dispatch on January 27, 1966, named AMAROMA-2, a radio operator, as being part of the AMTRUNK network. Furthermore, AMSTALK-1's (Miguel A. Diaz Isalgue) Damage Report on March 8, 1968, stated that AMAROMA-2 and AMAROMA-3 were exposed by their true names as indigenous agent personnel to A-1. Given the name AMAROMA and the team attached to it, which included AMAROMA-2, is is possible that they were connected to a restaurant or a shop.
