Well, what happened next was long and complex, but just for you to
know , Anthony, since you are living where you are living, the first
public record of some Fidel Castro Ruz as a dangerous agitator in the
CIA files is that of a "Peronist student" who had attended to the
Congress of Latin American Students that had been organized with
strong backing from Peronism in Bogotá, exactly by the days when
Gaitán was murdered, the Bogotazo took place and this Castro hid away
from the killers in the Arg Embassy. This has been revealed by Rogelio
García Lupo, one of the founders of Prensa Latina.
