A September, 1960, cable on the meeting between David Morales and Lino Fernandez in Havana, and the planned exfiltration of three Cubans, had a message near the top of the cable, "Attention Bertrand Jobes." Furthermore, in November, 1961, Jobes was the originator of a cable on Jorge and Leslie Nobregas. In addition, AMDENIM-1's PRQ Part II in March, 1962, stated that he knew Jobes by an alias.
