104-10169-10200: CONTACT REPORT ON CARMELO GATTORNO

06/00/61: Contact Report by Thomas M. Hewitt: "There have been some indications that AMDIP/3 (Note: Ramon Augusto Ruisanchez) does not quite have the control of his own organization that he would like to claim he has. Recently he asked the C/O to reprimand his two Lts., AMDIP/4 and 5 about working harder as they were doing nothing to help him. It should also be noted that Ediel Montiel and Carmelo Gattorno, both Escambray fighters whom AMDIP/3 had WAVE exfiltrate as his men, have since gone over to Evelio Duque. Gattorno turned up with Duque at his motel on 23 June. AMDIP/5 says he doesn't know why Gattorno left the AMDIP S/H or know where he is. Duque says that Gattorno was sent as a special messenger to ODYOKE (U.S. Government) in Nov. 1960. He was carrying dispatches to ODYOKE and photos of Duque and all his staff. The dispatches were requesting immediate help for the Escambray front from ODYOKE. AMDIP/3 stopped Gattorno in Havana and later brought him out after he himself was in PBPRIME (U.S.). Because AMDIP/3 stopped his messenger Gattorno, Duque holds AMDIP/3 as much responsible for the collapse of the Escambray front as any other person. WAVE Comment: The photos and the dispatches reported by Duque have never been mentioned by AMDIP/3."
