This cable from the fall of 1963 passes along the gossip that "Rodriguez said AMBIDDY-1 (Manuel Artime) and Ruiz Williams just fakers at service of PBPRIME (U.S.) and PBPRIME had to create new intel agency, ODBEAT, for these objectives because KUBARK (CIA) so discredited already that not even PBPRIMERs had any respect for it."
