Although the name is redacted everywhere in the document, the redactor failed to redact it on the RIF sheet, effectively nullifying decades of effort to hide this name. His CIA security number, 214442, at the top of this document, links to hundreds of other documents where his name is redacted.
The redactor for this document failed to remove Emilio’s initials—E. A. R. They appear, along with Emilio’s CIA security number, in the “Case No.” field of the report.
This MFR is located in a stream of documents [in the 10180 center RIF block] that all belong to Emilio. This MFR discusses his work with Tony Sforza (AMRYE-1) in the CIA’s stay-behind net before and after the January 1961 the break in relations with Cuba.
This cable mentions Francisco Pancho Varona’s (AMCONCERT-1) contact with Jack Stewart in Havana in 1958. It also mentions that AMCONCERT-1 was then passed to “AMIRE-1 under stay-behind planning.” This history of the person behind the AMIRE-1 crypt, especially the passing of AMCONCERT-1 from Jack Stewart to AMIRE-1, is born out in the next two source documents (104-10113-10074 and 104-10109-10162).
This memo explains that Francisco Pancho Varona’s Havana case officer at “about 1959” was Jack Stewart.
This memo reveals that subsequent to being handled in Havana by Jack Stewart, Francisco Pancho Varona was handled by Frank Belsito and “Emilio Rodriguez.” When combined with HAVA 6269 (see above), this makes it certain the Emilio Americo Rodriguez’ CIA crypt was AMIRE-1.
Page 6 of this report discusses Henry Sloman’s (Tony Sforza) involvement in a CIA plan to exfiltrate Cubela from Cuba. It also notes that “AMIRE-1 advised that Rolando Cubela very probably will defect on OP ASTA.”
This memo is a preliminary debrief report on AMPANIC-7 (Emilio Adolfo Rivero Caro, AKA “Brand”), whose CIA Havana contact was Emilio Rodriguez. The debrief states that “AMIRE-1” was known to AMPANIC-7 “as Emilio Rodriguez.” NB: Researchers who want to see this in the clear will need to put quote marks around the RIF number to pull up all versions of this RIF.
Almost illegible, but it indicates that Emilio used the alias Eugenio, that he worked with AMYUM-1 whose alias was "Ojeda", that he is linked with AMCONCERT-1 and AMBRONC-5. It is clear that he is the subject, which refers to his 201-274049 bio number.
This redacted Agency personal history statement form describes an unknown agent living in Cuba under a cover job and in the United States using a pseudonym with black hair and a ruddy complexion. When compared to a more recent declassified version of the same document it confirms this a personal history statement detailing some of Emilio Americo Rodriguez's biographic history.
