Re 11/18/63: Enrique Huertas went to dinner for JFK in Miami that night.

Huertas was President of the Cuban Doctors in Exile. This story was told on 11/29/63. On 11/27/63, the same informant said that if JFK's death was established to have been caused by Fidel Castro, then Quintin Pino Machado would be the 'intellectual director' of the plot. Pino was a former UN delegate to the UN, and subsequently the Cuban ambassador to Nicaragua, "well known as a terrorist who also trained other youth in the manufacturing or placing of bombs and explosives and was the chief coordinator of sabotage for Castro against Batista."

05/22/64: Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to Chief, Special Affairs Staff: Subject: Operational/TYPIC/AMBANG/AMWORLD/Interviews with AMBANG-1 and AMBIDDY-1 in Puerto Rico: "1. The following information, not disseminated, was reported initially to Gordon R. Hawlott by AMING-2 on 8 February 1964 following his return from a month's visit to Santo Domingo and Puerto Rico. AMING-2 reported that he had met separately with AMBIDDY-1 (Manuel Artime Buesa) and AMBANG-1 (Manuel Ray Rivero) in the apartment of a friend in San Juan, the meetings occurring during the last week of January. While Hawlott feels that AMING-2 is usually quite reliable and objective on general political reporting, his own participation in exile politics and political ambitions could conceivably influence his objectivity. In an effort to check the accuracy of AMING-2's remarks, the CO again discussed the interviews with AMING-2 on 18 March at which time AMING-2 repeated his account of the interview without any change in text, so that the CO is inclined to accept AMING-2's account as generally accurate. 2.
