104-10072-10289: SPECIAL ACTIVITIES REPORT ON A JMWAVE RELATIONSHIP

"AMCARBON-1 has been used successfully, during the period covered in this report, as a propaganda outlet through which items of interest to (CIA) could be surfaced in the free world press. Examples...AMCRAB-1...(a) Montivideo story highlighted AMCRAB-1's information relative to (Government of Cuba) activities in Uruguay...it was decided to do a series of feature stories on AMCRAB-1, pointing up the fact that AMCRAB-1 was typical of the veterans of the Granma expedition, who felt that they had been betrayed by Castro and had been relegated to positions of obscurity once the revolution had put Castro in power. AMCARBON-1 was briefed in detail on the AMCRAB-1 story, and he was given the opportunity to debrief AMCRAB-1 under controlled conditions in a JMWAVE safehouse. After completing his debriefing, AMCRAB-1 wrote a series of feature articles on AMCRAB-1. The first article in the series received front page headline play. The series of articles on AMCRAB-1 were well written, and they provided an excellent peg for JMWAVE to mount a replay operation via other propaganda assets...The details of this surfacing can be found in WAVE 5826, dated 14 October 1963, WAVE 6092, dated 19 October 1963, and WAVE 6174, dated 21 October 1963."
