“Imagine if you will… a place where the world’s most famous communist (Che Guevara) is an official guest of the world’s most famous anti-Communist (Francisco Franco) as he watches a bullfight while accompanied by a man (Jose Miro-Cardona) who shortly thereafter headed the provisional government created to violently overthrow the regime co-founded by the famous communist…and probably hang him to boot…”
Jose Miro Cardona served as Castro’s “Prime Minister” all the way from 1/7/1959 to 2/13/1959 when he recognized the farce. Later in 1960 Castro appointed him Cuban Ambassador to Spain. A few months later Miro sought asylum in Cuba’s Argentine embassy, made his way to the U.S. and became head of the “Cuban Revolutionary Council,” the civilian part of what came to be known as the Bay of Pigs invasion.
These pictures were supposedly taken June of 1959 in Madrid and only mention Che Guevara. So we could be wrong. But the gentleman next to Che sure looks like Miro..I’d put money on it.
