February 1959: The PRQ II for AMCALL-1/Reynoldo Gonzalez states: "Douglas J. Freapane was introduced to Subject in February 1959 by AMOURETTE-9/Rev. Enrique Osler in Havana to provide Freapane with first-hand information concerning the post-revolutionary high level labor activities and to aid in the development of Project AMCALL."


8/31/59 cable from Robert Reynolds at HQ to Havana: "Security review of Choaden and Freapane operations deemed essential...Jack Malone's lawyer told him in Havana that Choaden may be a (US) intelligence agent...Carlos Todd of Havana Times told Choaden he knew Choaden and Freapane were both (CIA) agents. Choaden repeated this on latest trip to HQS...what remedial steps station recommends."


9/15/59 cable from Havana to Director: "Concerns possible security risk of "David A. Phillips" and "David U. Groves" being identified as (CIA) personnel." In this version, the pseudonyms are redacted and their true names are written in as marginalia. In 104-10178-10280 (see next reference), their pseudos are identified as "Choaden" and "Freapane".

104-10178-10280: REF ANSWERED

This document is identical to 104-10128-10329 above, except the pseudonyms CHOADEN AND FREAPANE are not redacted (but the marginalia in 104-10128-10329) is not present.


Wilmer R. Aretz prepared this PRQ, 4/14/60: "The Case Officer (Douglas Freapane) meets with Subject (AMCALL-1) as a representative of JMCLIPPER." The questionnaire also says that AMCALL-1 believes he is working for JMCLIPPER. AMOURETTE-9 knows of AMCALL-1's relationship with JMCLIPPER.
