08/10/64: Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to Chief, Western Hemisphere Division: Page 2: ..."5. In August 1963, UOAMBER-6, a Cuban national, was interviewed by the JMPALM Case Officer to review his past association with the DUVALIER regime. Later JMPALM, following a lead made available by the KUJUMP office in Miami, recruited UOAMBER-8, a U.S. national who later developed a close relationship with UOAMBER-10, an official of the Haitian Consulate at Miami. 6. In February 1964 EVLUCID-1 appeared in the Miami area and started a chain of events which subsequently involved a number of JMPALM assets. UOAMBER-6, following JMPALM instructions, met EVLUCID-1, gained his confidence, and was subsequently appointed by EVLUCID-1 as the Military Commander for all EVLUCID-1 forces which, although few in number, were of sufficient import to warrant close monitoring by JMPALM. The significance of the appointment, however, was that it gave UOAMBER-6 an intimate exposure to EVLUCID-1 and the latter's ambitions, contacts, plans and objectives. During the months of May and June 1964, UOAMBER-8 was also instructed to make contact with EVLUCID-1 in order to monitor UOAMBER-6 information as a cross-check on this Cuban national whose reporting was proving to be of interest. It was during UOAMBER-8's initial contact with EVLUCID-1 that EVLUCID-1 insisted on contacting Cuban front groups in order to obtain financial support, equipment and money to help EVLUCID-1 in overthrowing DUVALIER...."

08/10/64: Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to Chief, Western Hemisphere Division: Page 2: "7. It was evident that neither UOAMBER-6 nor UOAMBER-8 was able to disregard EVLUCID-1's desire to meet with the BABUN group. Accordingly, UOAMBER-3, a long-time friend of the BABUN group, was instructed by JMPALM to strengthen his relationship with the BABUN group on the pretext of using the group as a means to obtain the release of several friends of UOAMBER-3 in Cuba. He would thus be placed in a position to monitor the BABUN group in their dealings with EVLUCID-1 and his followers. UOAMBER-2, a Cuban national and Principal Agent for JMPALM, in the meantime succeeded in obtaining part-time employment with the BABUN group and thus become aware of a number of BABUN deals including BABUN's desire to support EVLUCID-1...."
