Request permission to show AMCARD-1 and AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) Cuban Mugbooks, Volume I and II. 2.

06/21/71: Dispatch from COS, WH/Miami to Chief, Western Hemisphere Division: Subject: TYPIC/Future Use of AMMUG-1: "1. During JKLANCE's (CIA's) most recent attempt to contact AMETROPIA-1 (Roberto Rodriguez Llompart) via AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez), it became readily apparent that the cover story AMMUG-1 utilized with his immediate superior was unsatisfactory from two points: First, it did not permit us the operational flexibility so necessary in an approach of this sort and secondly, if AMMUG-1 had not returned when he did, his job security would have been jeopardized. 2. To correct the above deficiency, WH/Miami has arranged the following with the Miami Field Office (MFO): In the future, if we again utilize AMMUG-1 to approach a PBRUMEN (Cuban) official, we will ask that the MFO arrange to have one of their representatives from their Headquarters component contact the appropriate senior official of AMMUG-1's company. This senior official will in turn notify AMMUG-1's immediate superior that AMMUG-1 is to be permitted to travel on matters of importance to the Department of Defense. 3. Transmitted under separate cover is a copy of a memorandum we received from the MFO concerning the above arrangements. Eustace D. Kloock."

Immediately upon the receipt of the Reference B photographs, the undersigned reviewed with AMMUG-1 (Vladimir Lahera Rodriguez) the one of Nelson Quesada Rivero with negative results. AMGAME-1, however, did recognize the name of Quesada and identified him as being AMSTAFF (probably DGI). Needless to say, we will show AMGAME-1 the photograph of Subject at the earliest opportunity to determine how well he knows him and if warranted, will debrief him in detail on Subject. 3. The Reference B photograph of Subject will be reviewed with the other AMSTAFF/AMQUAKE assets residing in the JMCOBRA (also known as Station WH/Miami) area and we will promptly inform you of the results. Eustace D. Kloock." 201-749651, 201-816552, 201-836379.
