The famous Che Guevara pic seen on t-shirts and posters was a cropped version of one taken by Alberto Korda in March 1960. Korda’s real name was Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez and he was a KGB agent, as revealed by Soviet-Bloc intelligence defector Ion Pacepa. The cropped picture was spread throughout the world by I. Lavretsky and Giangicomo Fetrinelli, respectively full-time and part-time KGB agents, as also revealed by Pacepa.
It appears that the one in RFK’s office is the original un-cropped version–quite an HONOR!…
In brief: the Robert F. Kennedy houselhold contained a Che Guevara pic. So the one in the (recent, but since FRANTICALLY deleted!) post by Mariah Cuomo (Ethel Kennedy’s grand-daughter) hints at the pic being taken at grandma Ethel Kennedy’s home, which was probably the one in McLaen Virginia where she lived with the late RFK…..
