KGB agent recounts meetings with Che Guevara in 1956

The CIA’s crackerjack Cuba “Experts” circa 1958:

“He (Che) hates these cans! (Batista.) So let’s get away from these cans (Batista) and all will be cool!”

“What?! You mean he’s also a communist?!”

Forty five years after Che Guevara’s death a senior former Soviet/Russian intelligence officer paid tribute to the legendary revolutionary, disclosing some details of his life and death in an exclusive interview with RIA Novosti.

Lt. Gen. Nikolai Leonov (Ret.), of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), a successor to the KGB, who first met Che long before the victory of the Cuban revolution, described him as an “overwhelming figure” who belongs to all generations.

“He was the embodiment of the mythical and literary types that have always struck a chord with the people,” said Leonov, who retired as head of the KGB analytical directorate in August 1991.

“In such cases I think of Christ the Savior and Don Quixote.”

( KGB agent) Leonov said he was the first Russian to meet Che, in 1956 in Mexico.

“Don’t worry. We’ve infiltrated Castro’s guerrilla group in the Sierra Mountains. The Castro brothers and Ernesto “Che” Guevara have no affiliations with any Communists whatsoever.” (Crackerjack Havana CIA station chief Jim Noel Nov. 1958,)

“Me and my staff were all Fidelistas,” (Robert Reynolds the CIA’s crackerjack Caribbean desk’s “expert” 1957-60)

By that time dozens of Cubans had delivered stacks of intelligence reports to the U.S. State Dept. exposing the Communist string pullers behind the Julio 26 movement. Needless to add, these crude and insufferable “Batistianos” with their “Batistiano propaganda” were barely tolerated by the (mostly Ivy League taught) “Experts” who mostly staffed U.S. diplomatic and intelligence circles of the time. These U.S. “experts,” after all, were kept abundantly and “expertly” informed on Cuban matters by the Julio 26’s agents in the U.S., who were much more congenial to their own social and educational strata.


“Vamos Bien! CIA !!!”

  1. To that let’s also add the existence of U.S. military bases in Key West, Puerto Rico, and CUBA ITSELF. Bases that serve to prowl the area and house a navy bigger than all the navies of the entire world put together but that somehow failed to see the Soviet shits come into the area and dock in Cuba.

    It’s also interesting to note that despite Castro having already declared himself communist in word and action before Bay of Pigs, out of Guantanamo Bay not a single gun was ever given to Cubans before the alleged soviet missiles “surprise” that created the basis for USA claiming it could not touch Castro. Granted, the “surprise” took place just five minutes before the arrival of CIA trained Cuban commandos to Bay of Pigs.

    The CIA either had its fair share of communist or imbeciles.

    Putting this together with the arms embargo of 1958 against Batista, the ignored evidence against Castro by Washington, and the fact that the CIA itself assisted Castro, it all makes the truth very evident. Those communist pieces of shit had the Cuban republic handed to them by the very Yankess they claim to have defeated in some imaginary war not existent in any book but their own.

    The claim that Castro took over Cuba through mere guerrilla warfare is a lie and that is why all subsequent attempts by leftist guerrillas to emulate him in their respective nations have never had the same outcome.

    The reason Bastista and many of Cuba’s top military officials left Cuba overnight was because of the American pressure that existed behind Castro and against them despite their friendship to USA. A pressure that also forced those that remained to lower their guard and assume that USA would assume responsibility for their moves in Cuba, a mistake even more fatal than believing in Castro.
