03/23/61: Dispatch from COS, Montevideo to Chief of Base, JMWAVE: Subject: JMZIP/Oper Luis Conte Aguero Visit to Montevideo: "1. Forwarded under separate cover are sample press clippings relative to subject's visit to Montevideo. 2. As noted in referenced cables, subject's visit made a great impact upon Uruguayan public opinion, largely as a result of excellent media support, a large proportion of which was entirely spontaneous...Although he was guided from time to time by the station's KUCAGE (CIA Psychological and Paramilitary Operations Staff) mechanism, again it was his eye for the dramatic and extraordinary courage that produced the results...William C. Busweiler."

104-10165-10059: URUGUAYAN STUDENT SUPPORT TO LUIS CONTE AGUERO.

03/23/61: Dispatch from COS, Montevideo to Chief, WH Division (Info: Chief of Base: JMWAVE): Subject: JMZIP/General Uruguayan student support to Luis Conte Aguero: "1. Forwarded under separate cover is a clipping from the 20 March edition of El Pais which records the adhesion of a number of democratic student organizations to the stand taken by subject during his recent visit to Montevideo. Also quoted are excerpts from a speech given by the executive secretary of a station-influenced student organization. 2. The apparently spontaneous nature of such demonstrations is having a cumulative effect on broad segments of the Uruguayan public. Furthermore, such statements appear to be having a demoralizing effect upon the Communist Party of Uruguay (PCU) as evidenced by its frenzied efforts to hold demonstrations in the Uruguayan interior and as confirmed by penetration agents and the shrill denunciation of these student groups by the PCU daily, El Popular. (Signed) William C. Busweiler."

10/27/61: Dispatch from COS, Montevideo to Chief, WH Division: "1. While fully endorsing the objectives of Subject's program, as outlined in reference and its separate cover attachment, this Station wishes to state that it has certain reservations about the suitability of AMCORE-2' (Luis Ernesto Conte Aguero) as the general coordinator of this activity...It is the Station's belief that AMCORE-2, while possessed of many admirable traits (he is an excellent speaker and is courageous in the face of personal danger) is also excessively egotistical and difficult to control...(note: Kennedy plan underlined and a question mark next to it)...(Signed) William C. Busweiler."
