Unknown identity. Henry J. Rubash was described in two Progress Reports in 1966 (although there appears to be problems with the correct dates) as a PW. In addition, a Progress Report in July, 1968, said Rubash was a CA.
Rubash reported on AMSTRUT-2 (Juana de la Caridad Castro Ruz) and AMICE-31 (Reinaldo Pico Ramon). A cable on January 9th, 1969, stated that Henry J. Rubash was the last JMWAVE AMICE case officer, and he was at that time working at HQs on consultations.


01/03/66: Memo from PW/Rubash to COS: Subject: TYPIC/OPERATIONAL/AMSTRUT-2 - Progress Report 1 October - 31 December 1966: The date of the memo may be wrong as there are references to FY 67 so the memorandum cannot have been written on January 3, 1966. References to AMLYRIC-1 on page 101 and 102 (pages 2-3 of memo).


12/27/66: Memo from PW/Rubash to COS: Subject: TYPIC/OPERATIONAL/AMLIRA - Progress Report 1 October - 31 December 1966: The date may be incorrect as the Operational Highlights section refers to the second quarter of FY 1967.

06/19/68: Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to COS, Buenos Aires (Info: COS, Santo Domingo; COS, JMCOBRA; Chief, WH Division): Subject: AKULE/AMICE/Comments of AMICE-31 on Raimundo Ongaro: "1. AMICE-31 had only the following to add concerning Raimundo Ongaro and his activities: After Ongaro had made his violent speech on television in Santo Domingo he was concerned by the Cuban (exile) delegation the members of which were incensed by the allegations concerning Cuban exiles and his misinformation about the Castro regime. According to AMICE-31 their arguments prevailed and Ongaro in the end was quite apologetic and admitted to them (AMICE-31 thought sincerely) that he had been in error. As proof of the sincerity of Ongaro's change of mind on the Cuban question AMICE-31 pointed to the fact that, on behalf of the Cuban delegation, Ongaro approached Juan Luis Gallo Estevez, the intransigent Uruguayan whose negative vote (the only one) doomed the Cuban-sponsored resolution on political prisoners to defeat, and tried to get him to go along with the majority. 2. AMICE-31 called Ongaro basically 'un buen muchacho' and non-Communist. He reported that Ongaro was a strong peronista and a good, practising Catholic.' He added this latter description with some wonderment because he had always placed 'good, practising Catholics' automatically in the pro-U.S., anti-Castro camp. Henry J. Rubash."
