FELIX RODRIGUEZ: El agente de la CIA que capturó al comandante Ché Guevara

El ex-agente y coronel de la CIA Félix Ismael Rodríguez que durante el affaire Irán-Contras tomó notoriedad con su nombre de guerra "Max Gómez" y fue uno de los cerebros que rastrearon , cercaron y atraparon a Ernesto "Che" Guevara en Bolivia en 1967, aspira una bocanada de aire y comienza a contar, por primera vez, su versión sobre aquella captura en la selva boliviana.

Félix Ismael Rodríguez Mendigutia (born 1941 in Havana, Cuba) is a former Central Intelligence Agency officer famous for his involvement in the Bay of Pigs Invasion, in the interrogation and execution of Marxist Che Guevara and his ties to George H. W. Bush during the Iran-Contra Affair. He is Cuban of Spanish Basque ancestry.

Capture and execution of "Che" Guevara

Félix Rodríguez, a Cuban exile turned CIA Special Activities Division operative, advised Bolivian troops during the hunt for Guevara in Bolivia.[184] In addition, the 2007 documentary My Enemy's Enemy, directed by Kevin Macdonald, alleges that Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie aka "The Butcher of Lyon", advised and possibly helped the CIA orchestrate Guevara's eventual capture.

On October 7, an informant apprised the Bolivian Special Forces of the location of Guevara's guerrilla encampment in the Yuro ravine. On October 8, they encircled the area with 1,800 soldiers, and Guevara was wounded and taken prisoner while leading a detachment with Simeón Cuba Sarabia. Che biographer Jon Lee Anderson reports Bolivian Sergeant Bernardino Huanca's account: that a twice wounded Guevara, his gun rendered useless, shouted "Do not shoot! I am Che Guevara and worth more to you alive than dead."
