2/2/62 memo from DCOS Bob Moore to C/PW Robert Trouchard: Moore writes, "I see no reason to establish this relationship, do you?" Trouchard responds: "No reason to foster or support this relationship. Lem Jones (note: a public relations man) waxed wealthy at the time of the great unpleasantness for his press relations job for (Tony) Varona/AMHAWK and Miro (Cardona/AMBUD-1). I'm sure he'd like to return to the trough. Passavoy already told that we are not in favor of this."

07/18/62, Dispatch from COS, JMWAVE to Chief, Task Force W: ..."2. The following points may be necessary for a clearer understanding of the contents: a. Reference to 'friends' means CIA. 'Phil' is Robert K. Trouchard who had told AMCLATTER-1 that there was no necessity for continuing his regular contacts with AMBUD-1 (which instruction probably caused AMCLATTER-1 to go into such detail on the way the meeting came about). b. 'Eduardo' and 'Mr. B.' are respectively Terence S. Crapanac and the famous 'alias Frank Bender.' c. The excised name is that of the Chief, CIA."

Trouchard on his recent TDY. 2. Trouchard, under alias and representing an unidentified U.S. Government agency, was present at a showing of Subject's color film on 6 April 1963. Subject explained that part of the footage showed Cuba before Castro as a highly developed country from the standpoint of agriculture and animal husbandry, and that after the revolution Castro had taken the film in exchange for Subject's brother who had been imprisoned on political charges...Trouchard was favorably impressed with the film as basic propaganda material, but felt that considerable editing would be necessary..."
