Authored by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a CIA publication. "On 25 November, just after the shooting of Oswald, Che Guevara remarked in a speech at an electric power forum that the death of President Kennedy "could presage more problems for the revolution." Guevara warned his listeners to be alert to any danger.

"...there had been considerable discussion about the difficulties between Carlos Rafael Rodriguez, minister of the National Institute for Agrarian Reform (INRA) and Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Minister of Industries. AIP (Agency of Newspaper Reporters) noted that on March 6, 1964, at a meeting in the palace, Castro stated "Che" deserved the very high title of "Worker of the Vanguard", a statement interpreted to mean a pat on the back for the Argentine Communist and an indication of which side Fidel Castro favors."
