Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
AMEAT-1 was engaged in clandestine counterrevolutionary activity from early 1961 to September 1962. He was forced into hiding in September 1962, and fled Cuba in November 1962. An extensive CIA Field Information Report in June 1963 was based on his personal experience and observations. It is possible that he mentioned himself in this report. Furthermore, AMEAT-1 was involved in an AMTABBY cache team in December 1963.
