BBC: CIA man recounts Che Guevara’s death

Fascinating article about Che Guevara’s last moments:

Felix Rodriguez received the order from the Bolivian military high command. There was a simple code: 500 meant Che Guevara, 600 dead, 700 alive.

500 – 600 was the command.

Mr Rodriguez wanted confirmation on the crackly radio line. It was repeated: 500 – 600.

Mr Rodriguez broke the news to Che that there was to be no trial. “Che turned white… before saying: ‘It’s better this way, I should have died in combat.’ “

It’s too bad none of the idiots wearing his face on a t-shirt understand how much blood his “revolution” truly consumed… or how his brutal violence encouraged more of the same.
