Jon Lee Anderson still thanking the regime that co-authored his Che Bio

ramiro-valdes-y-hugo-chavez
Hugo Chavez with famous Cuban doctor, teacher and athletic instructor, Ramiro Valdes (also known as the KGB's favorite Cuban).

"Chávez has also made a barter arrangement in which Cuba, a country generally strapped for energy, receives Venezuela’s oil in exchange for the expertise of tens of thousands of Cuban doctors, teachers, and athletic instructors". (emphasis by intransigent poster)

writes the Che hagiographer who lived in Cuba for years.

"I have yet to find a single credible source pointing to a case where Che Guevara executed an innocent person," he wrote in the hagiography.

    "I have yet to find a single credible source pointing to a case where Che Guevara executed an innocent person,"
    How can Anderson know if Guevara's victims were guilty or innocent, even given Guevara's own warped definition of guilt? None of them ever received a trial!

  • Mr. Mojito

    Joelima, it is even worse than that. Because he claims he also asked us exiles in Miami and still found nothing. The full comment is ...

    "I have yet to find a single credible source pointing to a case where Che executed 'an innocent'. Those persons executed by Guevara or on his orders were condemned for the usual crimes punishable by death at times of war or in its aftermath: desertion, treason or crimes such as rape, torture or murder. I should add that my research spanned five years, and included anti-Castr­o Cubans among the Cuban-Amer­ican exile community in Miami and elsewhere.­"
