3/16/66 trial transcript was released, with Felaifel's testimony exposing the identity of AMWOO-1: "In Miami, there are persons who...act as intermediaries for the Americans who draw up the plans...such as recruiting mercenaries for the Congo and the Dominican Republic. One of these gentlemen is Jose Enrique Daus. (Note: AMWOO-1) He used to be a lawyer in Havana. Another is Otto Giner (phonetic), owner of some enterprises here in Havana. Another is Alberto Fernandez (note: AMDENIM-1)...There are innumberable differences among the counterrevolutionaries in Miami. There are two outstanding factions: The Batistianos, who belonged to or sympathized with the Batista government, and the so-called revolutionaries. These groups assail and blame each other for everything that has happened, for having lost everything. They throw in each others' faces the fact that "We lost everything because of the tyrant's (faults). No, we lost everything because of yours."
