10/17/61 dispatch from Chief, JMWAVE to Chief, WHD: Transmittal of AMOT-6 report from 9/13/61 re interview with Jose R. Villas Valdes, coordinator of MRR. At page 9 of 10, see 10/17/61 contact report by Alton Pirnack re Debriefing of Lazaro: Displays that AMOT-6 is also known as C-5. Carlos Bandin aka Lazaro is national coordinator of MRR. Two factions in JMWAVE area: Bebe Acosta and AMJAVA-4/Rafael Quintero. Both factions see AMBRONC-5 as their leader. Lazaro, AMCOAX-1 and former UR chief Cesar were all arrested because of SABORIT of the AMPUG net. AMPUG-1 introduced Lazaro to Saborit. The last page is an organizational chart of the MRR, provided by "Lazaro".

104-10235-10217: DISPATCH-CUBAN EXILE MATTERS/NAVAL COMMISSION

June 1961: Stanley Zamka/David Morales presents report from "Naval Commission" of Cuban exiles. First three men listed were Miguel F. Pons, Armando Rodriguez, and Felipe Vidal Santiago. Information obtained by AMOT-6.

104-10235-10223: DISPATCH-CUBAN EXILE NAVAL MATTERS

6/20/61 memo from Stanley Zamka, Chief of Base, JMWAVE to Chief, WHD. "On 27 May 1961 AMOT-6 reported that the Cuban Navy in Exile has been very active recently and it is rumored that there is a cayo (key) where a base is being put into operation. Taking part in this operation are Renato Diaz Blanco and Nino Diaz. (AMNORM-1)...1313 Northeast 8th Avenue, Miami, Florida...is the location of Nino Diaz's personnel...persistent rumors in Naval circles that engineer Carlos Hevia of AMBUD will assume full naval control...naval personnel feel he is not a cheap politician like AMDIP-1 and other members of AMBUD...the new offices of Naval Intelligence are going to be moved to 128th Street and 77th Avenue, the house used for the training of the AMFASTS.

180-10145-10363: Third Agency Coordination

6/27/62: Jose Carbonell Marrero - naturalized US citizen of Cuban birth who reentered the US 5/15/62 after 26 months in Cuba, served approximately 14 months in prison. Said to be with G-2 and in US on G-2 assignment. Used by Masferrer in 59-60 as double agent, sending false info to Government of Cuba." The chronology then states "MDL=AMOT-6 ? source." As this is a chronology about Marcos Diaz Lanz, this is a strong hint that he is AMOT-6.

104-10260-10061: DISPATCH: JOSE CARBONELL MARRERO (FOLDER TITLE: DIAZ, LANZ MARCOS #201-259716 VOL II)

7/27/62 dispatch from CI George Watts at JMWAVE to Chief, Task Force W: Report from folder entitled "Marcos Diaz Lanz", it appears that he is the source for this background information on Jose Carbonell Marrero. The coordinating officer is "C/CI Raymond L. Pochron". If this is JMWAVE's CI division, this is a significant development because this division is generally addressed as AMOTs rather than CI. On page 3 of 10, AMOT-6's case officer is reported to be Henry Sloman. Could he be Pochron?

104-10235-10109: NOTE: ATTACHED ARE AMOT REPORTS ON EXILE GROUPS RECRUITING CUBANS FOR SERVICES

6/6/62: Report on his "penetration" of the Rescate office in Miami and learning a tiny bit of information.
