Commission Document 87 - Secret Service report of 08 Jan 1964 re: Oswald

Re 11/18/63: Enrique Huertas went to dinner for JFK in Miami that night.  According to Secret Service informant 3-11-48, Quintin Pino Machado bragged on an uncertain date that he had almost succeeded to assassinate Huertas in Miami. 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."

104-10163-10041: ARTIME BUESA, MANUAL (VOL XII).

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 and AMBANG-1 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. During the last week of January AMBANG-1 told Source at a private meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico that he would like to enlist Source's assistance as an advisor on medical affairs and as a propaganda worker. Source, per PBRUMEN (Cuban) custom, requested that AMBANG-1 explain to Source what resources he had for the liberation of PBRUMEN and asked AMBANG-1 to offer proof why he should consider himself a leader. Source claims AMBANG-1 replied that he had boats and weapons sufficent for strong military action in PBRUMEN and would be able to place combat forces in PBRUMEN during March 1964, said combat forces having an ability to hold their own for weeks on the island, AMING-2 observed that he had driven out to Mayaguez where he had seen four separate training installations..."
