Cryptonym: AMPAL-2

Definition:
Unknown identity. A cable in August, 1960, from AMPAL-2, reported that Ralph Diaz Hanscom (AMGLAD-1), a member of the AMBIDDY internal group, was arriving in Miami. Also, a cable in July, 1965, stated that AMPAL-2 had reported on Jose de la Paz Rodriguez's alleged departure from Miami on a raid in April, 1963.
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
The same cable, mentioned above, stated that a POA was received on Jose de la Paz Rodriguez, for use as an "independent infiltree." The PRQ was said to be no longer available. Other documents on the subject were also no longer available, and he apparently left the Miami area in 1963. In addition, the same cable stated that Jose de la Paz Rodriguez's 201 number was 201-320039. A dispatch in May, 1967, stated that AMCRUMP-4's 201 number was 201-320030, very close to this.
