Che’s body was never where they say they found it

Cuban-American Félix Rodríguez, the CIA agent who led the operation in Bolivia to capture Ernesto “Che” Guevara that culminated in his execution in 1967, told this Wednesday that “the only thing that can be buried in Cuba” they are the hands of the guerrilla.

“The body was never where they say they found it,” he stressed in a telephone conversation.

According to Rodríguez emphatically, the Argentine guerrilla “was not buried on the side of the track with seven other bodies as Fidel (Castro) said; Che was buried at the head of the runway with two more corpses, there were only three.”

A few days after the 25th anniversary of the discovery of Che’s body at the Vallegrande airport (Bolivia), the 81-year-old former CIA agent, retired in Miami, denies the official version of what happened on March 28. June 1997.

According to the official Cuban version, the body of the communist assassin was found that day in a mass grave at the Vallegrande airport and, after being identified in a hospital in Bolivia, his remains were sent to Cuba, where a mausoleum was erected in his honor. in Santa Clara (300 km east of Havana).

According to the media outlet Cubavisión Internacional, the remains of the Argentine guerrilla were found on an abandoned runway in Vallegrande. There, says the media, a group of Cuban experts found the grave where seven guerrilla men were buried, including their leader Ernesto Che Guevara.

“Obviously, if he (Fidel Castro) buried his hands, then there is a part of Che in the Santa Clara monument, because the hands were taken there by the (then) Minister of the Interior (Antonio) Arguedas,” along with with a copy of the guerrilla’s diary in Bolivia, says Rodríguez.

THE HANDS OF CHE

According to the former CIA agent, “at dawn a Bolivian doctor went with my partner, (Gustavo) Villoldo, and then they cut off his hands, put them in formalin and put them in a dump truck, they took Che to the end of the runway where there was a bulldozer that was widening the runway so that larger planes could land”.

“And there they buried him, at the end of the track next to two corpses and Fidel says that they found him to one side with seven more. That was not Che Guevara,” he stated.

On how it became known that Che was in Bolivia, Rodríguez, whose mission was to save his life, although he now says that his execution was “the best thing that could happen to him,” recalls that he had to do with the French philosopher and writer Régis Debray.

“It was confirmed when (Argentine intellectual Ciro) Busto and Régis Debray were arrested; They went to visit Che and when they were taken prisoner they confirmed that the one who was there in the guerrilla was Che Guevara. If it wasn’t for them, it wouldn’t have been known that Che was in Bolivia,” he assured.

On October 9, 1967, Rodríguez landed in Bolivia to capture Che and later saw him “tied hand and foot.”

“My mission was to save his life at the request of the US Government. It was very important to keep him alive, killing him was a decision of the Bolivian president, General René Barrientos”, he pointed out.

IT WAS NOT A MILITARY SECRET

It was the Bolivian sergeant Mario Terán who executed Guevara in La Higuera that same day.

According to Rodríguez, the burial of the body “was not a military secret, they simply did not tell anyone.”

“They took a driver that day and buried him at the end of the runway, and they broke the news that he had been cremated and the ashes had been thrown from a helicopter into the air, which was not true,” he said.

And he added: “That was the official news that was given to the Bolivian people: that (Che) was cremated and his ashes scattered over the Bolivian jungle, but the truth is that he was buried at the head of the runway, you can put the wedge,” he asserted.
