08/01/63: Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to Chief, Special Affairs Staff: "1. On 18 July 1963, Irving N. Peggins met AMTRUNK-1 (George Volsky) for a general operational discussion. During the course of conversation the subject got around to AMBANG-1 (Manuel Ray Rivero), and AMTRUNK-1's relationship with AMBANG-1. AMTRUNK-1 said that he knew AMBANG-1 fairly well, but only in the same sense that he knew many exile leaders. He denied having any special relationship with AMBANG-1 or his political party, although he admitted to seeing AMBANG-1 frequently whenever the latter came to Miami. Peggins, begging ignorance, asked A-1 about past relationships between AMBANG-1 and CIA. A-1 said that AMBANG-1 was a strong personality and that in the past, since CIA had not been able to control him, it had opposed him. AMTRUNK-1 said that AMBANG-1 had mellowed in the past several years and that it was AMTRUNK-1's understanding that AMBANG-1 and CIA had patched up their differences. AMTRUNK-1 then said that AMBANG-1 recently returned from a trip to Europe where he was involved in a program to defect high level Cuban officials. A-1 implied that CIA might have a hand in this with AMBANG-1. 2. Recent information from AMTAUP-2 (probably Armando Alanis Angulo) and AMOT-119 (Max Lesnick Menendez) strengthens, rather than lessens, previous indications that AMTRUNK-1 and AMBANG-1 work very closely together and that AMTRUNK-1, despite his denials, is a strong supporter of AMBANG-1."
