Moreover, a CRC memo on February 9, 1962 stated that "at my meeting with Dr. Miro Cardona, he brought me the attached memorandum which he said had been given to him in Montevideo by Victor Gutierrez Salmador, who works there under the orders of Francisco Ordonez. Both of these men apparently are Spaniards and are working in the anti-Castro cause in Uruguay. Dr. Miro said that he understood that Gutierrez Salmador had already presented this proposal in Montevideo at an earlier date to the United States representative." A report on Francisco Ordonez stated he was "contact or liaison man in Uruguay, between the American Intelligence or Information organizations and the different groups, organizations, individuals etc. that work against Communism": https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=55611#relPageId=83
AVBUZZ-1 was described in a cable on January 4, 1962, as the Montevideo's Station Principal CA Agent. Furthermore, AVBUZZ-1 worked with Frank Diaz, Hada Rosete (assigned the cryptonym AVBUZZ-1 in late October, 1963), AMCORE-2 (Luis Conte Aguero). In respect to AMCORE-2, AVBUZZ-1 recommended, with the agreement of the CIA Montevideo Station, that the former's visits to Montevideo should be removed from his itinerary, due to an apparent failure to pay his hotel bill and his long speeches, among other things.

AVBUZZ-1, Station's principal CA Agent, reports considerable resistance within local KUCAGE (CIA Psychological and Paramilitary Operations Staff) network to news that AMCORE-2 (Luis Conte Aguero) will again visit Montevideo. As previously reported, AMCORE-2 tends to monopolize local activities and his behaviour during MONT Congress June 61 such that he practically persona non grata even among his former admirers. His ribald night thinking, patronizing three hour speeches and general air of (unintelligible) now offensive to Uruguayan public and Station concurs with AVBUZZ-1 that his presence MONT during MFM might well be counterproductive. FYI AMCORE-2 left hotel bill unpaid on last visit, which forced Station to cover it. 2. Can HQs or WAVE take steps remove Montevideo from AMCORE-2 itinerary? CS Comment: *Gave Subject's itinerary."

Via AVBUZZ-1 Station has paid approx $500 U.S. for such costs in past month due complaint by Hada that FRD apparently unable pay such costs. 2. Since Station has received no JMZIP (Latin American Division routing indicator) funds during FY 1962 it is requested that Hada be provided funds for such legitimate expenses."

Both of these men apparently are Spaniards and are working in the anti-Castro cause in Uruguay. Dr. Miro said that he understood that Gutierrez Salmador had already presented this proposal in Montevideo at an earlier date to the United States representative. However, he gave this to Dr. Miro with a view to getting the latter's interest in the proposal. Dr. Miro handled it to me and said it was something that I might want to look over when I had time to do so; that it was a very extensive plan and just in the propaganda aspects would cost about 15 million dollars. Following is a translation of this memorandum..."

View good work being done by Doctora Rosete do not want alienate her from Gomez Antia. Therefore suggest Gomez Antia be named fraternal delegate of Consejo as great friend of Consejo in Mont with appropriate flourish and announcement of same thus not naming particular person as delegate yet indicating preference for Gomez Antia over Abella, who getting worse and more obstructionist every day. Recent meeting executive committee of Amigos de Cuba Libre called specifically iron out differences between two, Abella locked up meeting site and left.

The subject of same is Francisco Ordonez, whom Ledon describes as working for KUBARK (CIA) in Montevideo and as having aroused suspicious of anti-Communists circles in Montevideo due to his strange associations and activities. Ledon proceeds to point out several of the incidents which have aroused this suspicion.
